Call for Submissions: Image of the Journalist in Popular Culture [IJPC] Journal
Researchers are urged to contribute manuscripts to a new journal focusing on the image of the journalist in popular culture. The IJPC Journal, an online academic journal that adheres to the highest standards of peer review, published its first volume in the fall of 2009 (see < http://ijpc.org/journal/index.php/ijpcjournal/issue/current >. The 150-page first issue was published by the USC Annenberg School for Communication as part of the Image of the Journalist in Popular Culture Project. The IJPC Journal is now accepting manuscripts for the second issue in 2010.
The purpose of The IJPC Journal is to publish research that investigates and analyzes the conflicting images of journalists in every aspect of popular culture: film, television, radio, fiction, commercials, cartoons, comic books, music, art, theater, and video games. Although we're interested in any manuscript dealing with the image of the journalist or public relations practitioner in any medium, a special section on the image of the gay journalist in popular culture is being planned for 2010. There has been virtually no research about the image of the gay journalist in popular culture. Our companion website, < http://ijpc.org > has a special section devoted to this topic. The 2009 IJPC Database also has thousands of ideas for manuscripts that would be of interest to those wanting to submit to The IJPC Journal.
As an interdisciplinary journal, The IJPC Journal welcomes original contributions from a variety of research methods and theoretical perspectives. Although the journal can accommodate monograph length manuscripts, manuscripts no longer than 25 pages (not including tables, graphs, figures, citations, and bibliography) are preferred. Authors are expected to conform to the current edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. All research manuscripts are blind refereed. For policies and submission information, go to < http://ijpc.org/journal/index.php/ijpcjournal/about >.

Matthew C. Ehrlich, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (email@example.com)
Sammye Johnson, Trinity University (firstname.lastname@example.org)
