A Discussion with Lance Holbert of the Journal of Communication

  • Starts: 4:30 pm on Wednesday, March 4, 2020
  • Ends: 5:30 pm on Wednesday, March 4, 2020

The session will offer an overview of the day-to-day editorial decision making at Journal of Communication. Attendees will gain an understanding of the current editorial vision for the journal, what types of submissions are gaining traction, and what works are not as well received (and why). Attention will also be given to what types of submissions the journal's editorial team would like to see more of in the future. The second half of the session will allow attendees to provide feedback on what they would like to see more of at the journal, ask specific questions about submissions (past, present, or future), and raise any additional concerns for editorial consideration. Overall, the session is meant to provide you with an understanding of the inner workings of the journal and to allow your faculty and graduate students the ability to offer valuable feedback on what they would like to see take place with the journal.
