The Florida Communication Journal
Interested in sharing your work with fellow scholars?
The FLORIDA COMMUNICATION JOURNAL is seeking submissions for future issues. The Journal is a professional, refereed publication distributed twice a year. We encourage the submission of previously unpublished articles or research reports that relate to any aspect of the human communication process. Both quantitative and qualitative (narrative) manuscript submissions are welcome, as well as short (2-3 pages) book reviews. We also encourage the submission of student work, faculty/student collaboration, scholarly pilot studies and book reviews. We are proud to publish articles that make a contribution to the advancement of human communication and scholarship.
Authors should prepare all manuscripts double-spaced, according to the latest edition of APA guidelines. Submit the work electronically as two separate Word documents (cover page/abstract and final manuscript). Prepare the cover page with author(s) names, address, e-mail address, affiliation and an abstract of no more than 100 words. To facilitate blind review, remove all references to the author(s) within the manuscript itself .
Because of space limitations, we look favorably on manuscripts of 12 pages or less in length. We are committed to our current structure of peer-reviewing and your submission will be given rigorous review by members of our review board. The Editorial Board of the Florida Communication Journal is comprised of college and university professors, community college instructors, and published scholars. Publication of our journal is in the fall and spring of each year; therefore the deadline for submission is always January 31 and July 31.

Stephen Zeigler, PhD
Editor, Florida Communication Journal
Interested in joining the FCJ Editorial Board?
If you have a strong research background and a record of publications AND enjoy reviewing and offering suggestions to improve the publications of others, please contact Dr. Stephen Zeigler, FCJ Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The benefits include providing an important service for the FCA, having your service noted on the inside cover of the journal and enhancing your vita. Most reviewers find that they have become better scholars by reading the work of others and contributing to improvement of other manuscripts. Reviewers also enjoy participating in a community of scholars by helping others meet their professional goals.
The responsibilities would be to review 2-4 blind manuscripts per journal and compose edits and comments for the author. The editor will send anonymous reviews to authors for revisions, and make a final decision regarding publication. Typically, manuscripts are 12-15 pages and there is a review form to help you organize your comments and scoring. The editor will do minimal screening to ensure the integrity of the peer-review process, but will not forward manuscripts that are clearly unacceptable.
