Call for Papers

Special Issue: Electronic writing/publishing
Deadline: April 1, 2003

As electronic media and software increasingly influence the ways in which
writing is done, taught, and published, new issues arise for writing in
this environment; therefore, Issues in Writing, a refereed journal, is
seeking submissions for a special issue exploring the implications of the
current trends in electronic writing.

Possible topics for manuscripts:
--impact of various forms of software on the composition process
--writing for the web
--hypertext implications for reading/writing
--evaluating writing electronically
--writing and designing software
--electronic writing in the workplace
--teaching writing electronically (integration into traditional classrooms, distance education, evaluating student writing in electronic environments)
--online publishing
--accessibility issues for web publishing
--rhetorical "topoi" for online writing and research
--collaboration and interactivity in online writing and publishing
--online communication and the notion of "discourse communities"

Issues in Writing is an annual, refereed journal devoted to the study of
writing in the Arts and Humanities, Science and Technology, Government,
Education, Business and Industry, and the professions.

We welcome articles on all aspects of the teaching and production of
public writing, and we consider a broad variety of approaches,
methodologies, and styles. We accept, for example, research articles that
describe, narrate, or report the results of primary or secondary research
in the classroom and workplace; practical articles that provide insights
into writing as it occurs in the various professional contexts or that
describe innovative approaches to the teaching of writing; and articles
from theoretical and/or historical perspectives that address problems and
issues related to all aspects of academic, professional, and technical
writing. We are especially glad to receive articles that link academia and
the world of work and that encourage stimulating dialogue across
traditional rhetorical and disciplinary boundaries, forms, and roles.

Manuscripts should be 30 pages or less, double-spaced (including
appendices or illustrations). Do not include your name and/or affiliation
anywhere on the MS itself. Authors should use standard English and avoid
jargon or provide definitions when using specialized terms. Provide two
clear copies.

Send manuscripts and correspondence to:

Or submit manuscript by email to <> in Rich Text format or
