CFP: AEQ Winter 2014 Issue on Writing Center Theory and Practice
The Winter 2014 (Vol. 18, Iss. 4) Issue of Academic Exchange Quarterly, an independent double-blind-peer-reviewed print journal, is now accepting submissions for its special section on Writing Center Theory and Practice. Articles may explore issues of theory, practice, and experience in writing center work, including qualitative and empirical studies and discussions of pedagogy.
Articles may also consider the following: How writing center professionals cope with change and the eventuality of needing to expand their efforts in response to new economic and demographic challenges. Furthermore, as we move towards increasingly virtual and technologically dependent learning communities, how can these efforts help meet the evolving demands of our students?
In addition to Writing Center Directors and other Administrators, submissions are welcome from professional staff, faculty tutors, and graduate students who work in the writing center. Manuscript length should be between 2,000 and 3,000 words. Please identify your submission with the keyword “Center-2.”
Every published article automatically qualifies for inclusion in the upcoming Sound Instruction Book Writing Center Theory and Practice.
Submissions will be accepted now until the end of August; however, early submissions are encouraged as they offer the following incentives:
- longer time for revision
- opportunity to be considered for Editor’s Choice
- eligibility to have article’s abstract and/or full text posted on journal’s main webpage
- opportunity to be considered for inclusion in Sound Instruction Series
