Call for Book Review Proposals
The journal Communication Theory invites book reviews of one to three texts (maximum length 1500 words) of works relevant to the topic of communication theory, particularly those contributing to diversity in perspectives. Although Communication Theory is currently limited to publication in English, this new feature seeks to promote inclusivity through reviews of publications that are themselves not available in English. We prefer proposals to review books that have been published within the last ten years. Our aim is to facilitate comprehensive dialogue across linguistic and other boundaries, on our core communication issues. Proposals for book reviews will be considered on a rolling basis. These reviews would address one to three texts in 500-1500 words.
Please send proposals to the Editor-in-Chief, Karin.wilkins[at]austin.utexas.edu, who will consult with Associate Editors in determining approval.
Communication Theory offers a distinguished global forum for dialogue on critical theoretical issues in communication, through publication of insightful and innovative articles and reviews. This journal is committed to integrity through rigorous peer-reviewed processes that promote standards of excellence. We encourage submissions that reflect and recognize strength in interdisciplinary approaches to the study of communication, that consider diversity in perspectives, and that contribute to public engagement. Research articles and reviews are appropriate when they clearly advance theoretical approaches relevant to communication scholarship. We respect and invite diversity in areas of academic interest and research approaches, as well as in gender, sexuality, ethnic, national, and regional origin.
