Xchanges online journal UG Issue 7.1 (6/28/10) TC/Comp/Rhet/WAC
Call for Papers:
The Xchanges online journal is a refereed interdisciplinary Technical Communication, Rhetoric/Writing, and WAC journal published by New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (New Mexico Tech). Xchanges is seeking submissions of major research projects or Senior theses completed by TC, TW, or Composition/Rhetoric students during the 2009-2010 academic year. Undergraduate theses/research projects may be submitted in either traditional print or multimodal web formats. Theses or research projects must present innovative, original research of interest to technical communicators, to those engaged in the research and practice of Writing Across the Curriculum, or to Rhetoric/Writing professionals and students in a range of professional or academic settings. The focus of the journal Xchanges is broad and inclusive, thus the journal editors are not stipulating research-topic parameters for this issue. To view our last undergraduate research issue, Issue 6.1, please visit the journal at: www.nmt.edu/~xchanges.
Submissions can be of various lengths, as some submissions will be in journal-article format and others will be web-based ("webtexts"). The form of an author's text should be at once comprehensible, innovative, and appropriate to the information the author is presenting. Text-based (or "traditional") submissions should be sent as Word attachments and should conform to MLA style. Authors of webtexts should check for cross-browser compatibility and should make all efforts to ensure that links are functional and that markup is clean. Email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The schedule for Issue 7.1 is as follows:
June 28, 2010 – Manuscript/Webtext submissions due
October 1, 2010 – Editorial decisions announced
December 17, 2010 – Publication date of issue
Submissions to or questions regarding this issue should be sent to email@example.com.
Submissions to Xchanges are evaluated by the journal editor and the Editorial board. Texts published in Xchanges are indexed in MLA International Bibliography. Authors whose texts are selected will be required to submit a brief biographical statement.
