Call for Editors: Human Communication Research, and Communication, Culture & Critique

Call for Nominations
Editor for Human Communication Research

The International Communication Association Publications Committee is soliciting nominations for editor of Human Communication Research to succeed John Courtright, whose terms ends at the close of 2016.  We expect the next editor will be appointed to a four-year term at the June ICA Board Meeting and begin receiving manuscripts shortly thereafter. A completed nomination package should include a letter from the candidate indicating a willingness to serve and a vision for the journal (including vision for use of Associate Editors), a CV, contact information for three references who are scholars familiar with the candidate’s work and skill set necessary to edit the journal, and a letter of institutional support from the candidate’s home institution.  Details about the editorship are available through the following links:

Human Communication Research concentrates on presenting empirical work in any area of human communication. The special brief of the journal is to advance understanding of human symbolic processes, so there is a strong emphasis on theory-driven research, the development of new theoretical models in communication, and the development of innovative methods for observing and measuring communication behavior. The journal has a broad social science focus, so it should appeal to scholars in communication from psychology, sociology, linguistics, and anthropology, as well as areas of communication science. The journal maintains a broad behavioral and social scientific focus but reflects no particular methodological or substantive bias.

Nominations should be submitted electronically by 1 December 2015. Self-nominations are welcomed.

In 2015, the ICA Publications Committee also expressed a willingness to consider editorial teams, in lieu of a single editor, for nomination. In such circumstances, an editorial team would need to provide an additional statement indicating the division of effort and management procedures the editorial team will establish, including a single chief editor for correspondence with the publisher.

Address queries and nominations to:
Elisia L. Cohen, Chair, ICA Publications Committee
