Annals of the International Communication Association

Call for Papers

The Annals of the International Communication Association is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal publishing state-of-the-discipline literature reviews and essays, including: descriptive reviews; meta-analyses; and theoretical essays.

Submissions to the Annals are broadly defined as follows:

  • Reviews – retrospective reviews, helping readers understand the development of current knowledge within the discipline over a defined period in the past, or prescriptive reviews, creating a roadmap for future direction of research on communication
  • Communication Insights – examining a set of predetermined topics that provide a degree of continuity across the years and indicate how a specific research topic has developed. A set of predetermined topics will rotate over five year periods
  • Book Reviews – reviewing a set of recently published books that focus on a central theme within the discipline.  The goal of the Annals book reviews is to provide a critical review and synthesis of published books. The Editor encourages authors from non-English language speaking countries to consider submitting topical reviews of books not available in the English language in order to increase the reach of communication studies research globally.

The Annals is both international and interdisciplinary in scope, with authors and chapters representing the broad global interests of the International Communication Association.  All submissions will be subject to initial editor screening and subsequent peer review as necessary.


The Annals will continue the traditions established in Communication Yearbook providing an updated context for key research from across the Association.

Submission guidelines

All submissions should be made online at the Annals’s ScholarOne Manuscripts site. New users should first create an account. Once a user is logged onto the site, submissions should be made via the Author Center.
