Aim & Scope: Communication Research Reports publishes brief empirical articles (10 pages or less, excluding tables and references) on a variety of topics pertaining to human communication. Studies in the general areas of interpersonal, intercultural, life-span, nonverbal, small group, organizational, instructional, health, persuasive, mass, political, and computer-mediated communication are appropriate. Although the main portion of the paper should be devoted to a thorough reporting and interpretation of results, a concise but cogent theoretical rationale and literature review must also be included. At the Editor's discretion, some manuscripts may be designated as Brief Reports once they have undergone the initial review process. Brief Reports should be no longer than three pages (excluding tables and references). Their purpose is to highlight a specific finding and its relevance to the literature. All sections traditionally included in a paper should be present, but they must be very brief and to the point. Any extraneous information must be eliminated. Brief Reports SHOULD NOT BE SUBMITTED to CRR; rather, they will be employed at the Editor's discretion. Also at the discretion of the Editor will be one manuscript per issue designated as a Spotlight on Method/Analysis piece. These articles will be solicited by the Editor and will be 5-8 pages in length (excluding tables and references) highlighting topics that will range from novel methodological approaches and/or statistical techniques to common misconceptions/issues of contemporary controversy related to method/analysis. Each issue of CRR will contain one such manuscript that will be solicited and/or determined by the Editor.

Communication Research Reports is philosophically committed to publishing the highest quality brief empirical articles derived from a variety of research areas within the discipline. Although Communication Research Reports is supported by ECA, a regional communication association, it has a national and international readership and is considered by many leaders in the field to be the best source for short research reports on communication. As such, submissions from diverse geographic areas and cultures worldwide are encouraged.
