By Sharon Downey, Editor of Western Journal of Communication
The Western Journal of Communication is beginning its transition of editors. Current editor Sharon Downey will continue to accept manuscript submissions to the journal through August 31, 2016, and is responsible for publishing all journal issues in 2017. On September 1, 2016, editor-elect Robert Rowland will begin to accept manuscript submissions to WJC, and will be responsible for publishing the journal in 2018, 2019, and 2020. During this transition, there will be no disruption to the manuscript submission process, so authors who want to submit an essay to WJC should proceed in the normal way through Manuscript Central. If you have any questions, please contact editor Sharon Downey (firstname.lastname@example.org) or editor-elect Robert Rowland (email@example.com).
