The Western ABC Bulletin is the publication of the Western Region Association for Business Communication which publishes research, as well as, pedagogical articles. Its readership is national with some international interest presently (See recent issues at abcwest.org). Contributions can come from the fields of business, marketing, management strategy, business communication, professional communication along with work from intersectional fields, such as Disability Studies, Science and Technology Studies etc. That might have bearings on business and workplace communication. The authors are scholars, teachers, and practitioners, some of whom also do interdisciplinary research.
Submissions can vary in length from short news items and classroom assignments-related articles of under 1,000 words. Longer articles of upto 3,000 words are recommended for reporting results of research studies; in-depth pedagogical pieces; business cases related to workplace communication; interviews with professionals, researchers, and teachers; and business and professional communication trends in technology, workplace processes, and career development. The publication is flexible about the paper length as long as you consult with the editor before submitting your manuscript.
The Bulletin is particularly looking for submissions about the 2020 ABC virtual Conference at this time. We also call for commentaries from our readers about how they are faring with the effects of this pandemic which now has been with us ten months. We hope that you share your perspectives for the special feature on this topic in the spring 2021 Bulletin.
All inquiries are welcome and we are glad to mentor graduate students and emerging authors through the development process for their manuscript. Send your preliminary ideas and inquiries to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
