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. 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.
As our editorial in the inaugural issue of the Bulletin stated,
“While we view the Western ABC Bulletin as a forum for business and professional communication professionals, researchers, and instructors to share their current activities, we also see it as a publication venue for scholarly research, professional commentaries, and pedagogical endeavors that report innovation, as well as, improve on our current practices. We invite scholarly articles, workplace and classroom studies, and professional commentaries on topics of interest to business and professional communication academics, industry professionals, and trainers. Relevant workplace and academic technologies articles are also welcome. The Bulletin also plans to publish interviews with business and professional communication educators, professionals, and researchers to place a spotlight on their recent work and we invite nominations for this purpose.”
We have an open call for papers which is available on our home page.
