Call for Papers: Winter 2012 Issue of Academic Exchange Quarterly

The Winter 2012 Issue of Academic Exchange Quarterly, an independent double-blind-peer-reviewed print journal, is now accepting submissions for its special section on Writing Center Theory and Practice.


Articles may explore issues of theory, practice, and experience in writing center work,

including qualitative and empirical studies and discussions of pedagogy. Articles may

also consider the following: How writing center professionals cope with change and the

eventuality of needing to expand their efforts in response to new economic 

and demographic challenges. Furthermore, as we move towards increasingly viral and

technologically dependent learning communities, how can these efforts help meet the

evolving demands of our students?


In addition to Writing Center Directors and other Administrators, submissions are also

welcome from professional staff, faculty tutors, and graduate students who work in the

writing center. Manuscript length should be between 2,000 and 3,000 words. Please

identify your submission with the keyword “Center-2.”


Submissions will be accepted now until the end of August; however, early submissions

are encouraged as they offer the following incentives:
- opportunity to be considered for Editor’s Choice
- eligibility to have article’s abstract and/or full text posted on journal’s main webpage
- opportunity to be considered for inclusion in Sound Instruction Series
