Basic Communication Course Annual (Department of Communication)

ISSN 2473-4004 (online); 1546-2331 (print)


Angela Hosek, Ohio University

The Basic Communication Course Annual (BCCA) was first published in 1988 after the Midwest Basic Course Directors Conference. The Annual publishes the best scholarship available on topics related to the basic communication course and is distributed nationally to scholars and educators interested in the basic communication course.

Manuscripts published in the Annual are not restricted to any particular methodology or approach. They must, however, address issues significant to the basic course (defined broadly). In 2013, the Annual began including a Basic Course Forum section for shorter essays responding to a specific question. In 2016, the University of Dayton Department of Communication acquired the journal and its archives from the initial publisher and began publishing it as an open-access journal.

The submission process for Volume 36 (2024) is now open. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 1, 2023.

    ISSN 0041-9524

    The University of Dayton Review was published by the University of Dayton mostly three issues a year (spring, summer, fall) from 1964 to 1998. As its title implied, the Review presented articles by individual contributors, all of whom had a connection with the University. These articles were presented on the authority of their authors; neither the editorial board nor the University of Dayton assumed responsibility for the views expressed by these writers. It was sent without charge to the members of the faculty and to alumni, students and friends of the University who requested copies.
