Another Review Opportunity

Did somebody say revue? [Picturing some sort of 'Academic Footlight Parade' talent show. Sigh, I wish.]

Reviews are a solid way to break into academic publishing. I mentioned RCCS earlier in the week, here's another that's more broadly oriented towards commnication in general:

The National Communication Association publishes The Review of Communication, a refereed, online only journal that publishes state-of-the-art reviews dealing with all communication issues in all modes of communication. This includes book reviews and non-book-based disciplinary reviews. Areas of interest include cross-cultural communication reviews, in retrospect reviews (disciplinary history), professional issues reviews, and classics reviews.

They just emailed out a list of current books they're interested in having reviewed. It contradicts their website, which I'm assuming will be updated shortly, but given that, I'll repost the list below. If interested, send queries to: Raymie E. McKerrow, mckerrow [at] ohio.edu.
