Journalism and Mass Communication Educator

This journal focuses on learning and teaching, curriculum, educational leadership, and related exploration of higher education within a context of journalism and mass communication. Each issue introduces readers to new questions, new evidence, and effective educational practices through research, essays and book reviews rooted in the disciplinary content and practices of the academic and professional specialties we ask our students and faculty to master. All submissions are subject to peer review. The journal is published four times a year. It has been publishing since 1944.

Authors are encouraged to submit one typed, double-spaced copy of a potential publication of no more than 4,000 words, as well as an electronic copy in the latest edition of Microsoft Word. An abstract of no more than 100 words must accompany each submission. Authors should identify themselves on the cover page along with information including academic rank, department or faculty and institution. Accepted manuscripts must conform to Chicago Manual of Style guidelines. Detailed style instructions are contained in each issue of the journal.

The online collection of both articles and book reviews is extensive. Beginning with publications from 1974, the online versions are up to date with the most recent two issues from 2006. Both articles and reviews can be accessed through Pro Quest or CMMC and can be downloaded in PDF format.
