About This Journal
The Pepperdine Journal of Communication Research seeks to pursue truth and academic excellence in the field of communication by recognizing outstanding student scholarship that explores interpersonal, organizational, rhetoric and leadership, and intercultural communication. Through rigorous peer-review, the Journal strives to contribute to ongoing discussions in communication studies by publishing student papers that investigate a variety of contemporary topics and issues.
Submissions explore the many contexts of personal and professional communication, unveiling the shifting goals, strategies, and relationships that define interactions in our society. Papers may take the form of book reviews, research articles, or essays. We encourage application from students throughout the public relations, advertising, integrated marketing communication, journalism, communication studies, and sports administration programs.
