Now Welcoming Submissions for a Special Issue

Communication and Resilience: Multilevel Research and Theory

Deadline: 15 May 2019

The concept of human resilience continues to gain popularity among practitioners and scholars. Across different fields, resilience has been applied to variety of human systems (individuals, families, organizations, communities, nations).

A 2018 Journal of Applied Communication Research (JACR) forum (https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rjac20/46/1?nav=tocList) examined communication and resilience scholarship using a multilevel approach to understand the ways resilience is investigated by communication scholars and to advance a research agenda in this area. The JACR Forum was followed by a 2018 National Communication Association (NCA) preconference where participants presented recent empirical and theoretical work on resilience and communication.

We now invite contributions from scholars for a special issue of the Journal of Applied Communication Research (JACR) that will feature empirical research articles to advance our understanding of resilience and communication.

Manuscripts that feature a variety of quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods will be considered. Articles can focus on one level of communication and resilience (e.g., family resilience) or can examine intersections, integrations, or comparisons of multiple levels. Authors are encouraged to ground their submissions in the discussion of communication and resilience levels presented in the original JACR forum.

Submission Instructions

Deadline for full paper submissions is May 15, 2019. The special issue is scheduled for January 2020.

Submissions should strictly conform to the Journal of Applied Communication Researchโ€™s Author Guidelines and should be submitted via ScholarOne Manuscripts https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rjac.

Please indicate in the ScholarOne system that the submission is intended for a special issue, and also state in the letter that the paper is being submitted to the Communication and Resilience special issue.

Questions about the special issue should be addressed to Brian Houston (houstonjb@missouri.edu) and Patrice Buzzanell (pmbuzzanell@usf.edu). Other questions about the Journal of Applied Communication Research should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief, Debbie Dougherty (DoughertyD@missouri.edu).ย
