Technostyle: advertisement; Call for Papers;subscription information.
Technostyle is the journal of the Canadian Association of Teachers of
Technical Writing (CATTW). Technostyle presents articles and reviews of
interest to teachers, practitioners, or researchers involved in technical,
academic, professional, scientific, and governmental communication.
We are pleased to announce an upcoming special issue of Technostyle on the expertise of professional writing and its development.
We invite manuscripts written from a variety of approaches to the study of
nonliterary communication - rhetorical, linguistic, sociological, cultural,
ethnographic - but all submissions should be securely situated in relevant
research. While manuscripts addressing pedagogical issues are welcome,
authors should avoid describing lessons without explaining their
significance to broader theoretical concerns. In addition to the criterion
of relevance to the teaching, practice, and research of technical writing,
suitable submissions for publication are as follows: articles based on sound
empirical research, the significance of which is explicated in terms of
relevant and current theory, or articles that make a contribution to a
current, developing rhetorical framework. Technostyle also welcomes
articles that place these concerns in a context specific to relevant
scholarship in Canada and to international contexts.
Manuscripts should be sent to the address below. Manuscripts should be no longer than 6,500 words (25 double spaced, typed pages) and should be submitted in two copies free of internal or external indications of identity of authorship. All manuscripts will be externally reviewed and authors may be asked to undertake revisions in response to reviewers' evaluations. The editors also invite submissions of 500 words that respond to articles published in Technostyle. Publication is subject to editorial decision.
Authors of accepted submissions are asked to follow APA style in citations
