Journal of Communication Pedagogy

Editor:  Renee Kaufmann, University of Kentucky

The Journal of Communication Pedagogy (JCP) is a peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Central States Communication Association.  The journal publishes only the highest quality articles that extend communication theory, research, and practice in meaningful ways.  In addition to face-to-face and online classrooms, we seek manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research situated in a variety of contexts such as (but not limited to) health, business/industry, religious, risk/crisis, public relations, journalism, forensics, and nonprofits both within the borders of the United States and beyond them. We are particularly interested in the use of technology (including virtual reality and artificial intelligence) in instruction.  We welcome manuscripts that focus on instructional communication research within the communication discipline and beyond it (e.g., education, agriculture, social work, legal studies, engineering and S.T.E.M., pharmacy, nursing, health sciences).  In sum, we seek manuscripts that examine communication pedagogy as it occurs across subfields in the communication discipline, in disciplines throughout the academy, and in contexts beyond the walls of higher education. 

All manuscripts must adhere to the guidelines of the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and must not have been published elsewhere or be under review for any other publication.


Journal of Communication Pedagogy currently publishes once per year and is an open-access journal. Issues of the journal will appear at
