Call for Submissions for Special Issue of Technical Communication: 
"Communication of Research Between Academic and Practicing Professionals”

For the complete CFP.

A universally accepted aspect of professional and technical 
communication is that it delivers scientific and technical content “from 
those who know to those who need to know” (Barnum & Carliner, 1993). 
This effort should certainly include the delivery of research findings 
in both directions between the academic and practitioner worlds; but, in 
an interesting and disheartening contradiction, movement in either 
direction happens much less regularly and effectively than it should.

This special issue is devoted to exploring ways to improve the 
communication of research results between the academic and practitioner 

The guest editor invites proposals for papers on applied research or 
theory, case histories/studies, commentaries, lessons learned, and 
annotated bibliographies that address issues and questions surrounding 
how to improve the communication of academic research to practitioners 
and practitioner research to academics.

Proposals due December 15, 2015

Completed proposals or questions about potential topics should be sent 
to Michael Albers at  [log in to unmask]
