Journal of the Communication, Speech & Theatre Association of North Dakota


The Journal of the Communication, Speech, and Theatre Association of North Dakota (JCSTAND) is a refereed scholarly journal designed to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary research. The editor welcomes a wide range of material that enhances secondary and higher education curriculum and material that is devoted to basic or applied research in human communication, mass communication, theatre arts, or performance studies. Submissions may be quantitative, qualitative, rhetorical, or critical in nature.

Volume 36 will consist of three sections: Research Forum, Teaching Forum, and Undergraduate Papers. The Research Forum is devoted to publishing original research in the investigation of research questions or hypotheses. Any methodology (quantitative, qualitative, rhetorical, or critical) is welcome. The Teaching Forum features ideas and in-class activities related to communication and theatre education, forensic coaching, or dramatic arts. This section will also include action research papers on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. The Undergraduate Papers will feature top papers selected to be presented at the CSTAND convention and other papers whose authors designate themselves as undergraduates.

All manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition). To facilitate the submission process, JCSTAND will accept manuscripts electronically. Three separate files should be attached: File 1 should include a title page including the author(s) contact information and credits, if necessary. File 2 should include a 100-word or less biographical statement about the author(s). File 3 should begin with an abstract of no more than 100 words, five key words for indexing, and the body of the text (including references). All references to the author(s) should be removed from the body of the text. The deadline has been extended to July 1, 2023 to be considered for Volume 36, which will be published around January 2024.
