Guidelines

The editors invite submissions of original empirical research and theoretical scholarship on topics of interest to the writing center community. The WCJ aims to reflect the diversity of writing center contexts and encourages submissions related to a wide variety of institutional types and other environments. We are inclined toward empirical research—but not exclusively so. We recognize the value of theoretical exploration, of exceptional thinking, of insight. And we take an expansive view of what constitutes empirical. We thus welcome submissions that challenge our field’s boundaries through an ethos of questioning.

Only manuscripts that have not been published and are not under review elsewhere are accepted for consideration in The WCJ. The WCJ uses a modified version of APA, and all submissions should be consistent with the WCJ style sheet. Manuscripts should be submitted as Word attachments via email to writingcenterjournal [at] ou [dot] edu.
