Submissions are invited for publication consideration in Volume 30 of the Basic Communication Course Annual (2018). Managed by the Basic Course Division of the National Communication Association and published by the University of Dayton, the Annual publishes the best scholarship available on topics related to the basic course and is distributed nationally to scholars and educators interested in the basic communication course. Each article will be published online and indexed on the journal’s website.

All manuscripts submitted to the Annual will undergo blind peer review. Two or three members of the editorial board read and review each manuscript. The editor will return a manuscript without review if it is clearly outside the scope of the basic course or does not meet the requirements outlined in this call. The Annual will consider for publication the following manuscript types: full-length original research manuscripts, analysis articles, brief reports, and forum essays.
