Aim & Scope:

The Southern Communication Journal (SCJ) is the nationally and internationally read scholarly publication of the Southern States Communication Association (SSCA). SCJ publishes original scholarship that makes significant contributions to understanding human communication. The journal is not limited with regard to topic, context, methodology, or theoretical perspective on communication, yet articles published must establish the importance of the topic, soundness of the methodology, and the appropriateness of the theoretical perspective. SCJ publishes manuscripts and book reviews that will be of interest to scholars, researchers, teachers, and practitioners across the communication field.

SSCA has long welcomed scholars and students from all fields of communication, and Southern Communication Journal reflects that, incorporating articles through its 76-year run from a mix of scholarly avenues advancing both communication theories and practical applications in tandem.
