Journal of Writing Research

The Journal of Writing Research (JoWR) is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes papers that describe scientific studies of the processes by which writing is produced and or by which it can be effectively taught.

We are happy to consider papers from a range of research disciplines, including but not restricted to linguistics, psychology, and education, and using any appropriate and robust rigorously-executed research method. We publish both original research and rigorous literature reviews.

Journal of Writing Research is double-blind peer reviewed. It has a high rejection rate (above 90%), and good Scopus CiteScore rankings (top 20% in Education and top 5% in Language and Linguistics). The Journal of Writing Research is an open access journal (no reader fee - no author fee).

The mandate of the Journal of Writing Research is:

  • to publish excellent and innovative writing research drawn from a range of academic disciplines (e.g. psychology, linguistics, pedagogy, design studies, communication studies, information and communication technology, learning and teaching)
  • to stimulate interdisciplinary writing research
  • to be fully international
  • to apply high academic standards, including double blind peer review
  • to share knowledge through open access


We thank Earli SIG Writing, the Belgian University Foundation (FUS) and the University of Antwerp (Belgium) for their financial support.
