Online Journals

The WAC Journal
Housed in the WAC Clearinghouse, The WAC Journal is a national peer-reviewed journal on writing across the curriculum, published by Plymouth State College. The journal is an annual collection of articles by educators about their WAC ideas and WAC experiences. It is a journal of practical ideas and pertinent theory.

The Writing Center Journal
The Writing Center Journal is an official publication of the International Writing Centers Association , which is an Affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English . WCJ is published twice a year, in the fall/winter and spring/summer.

The Writing Center Journal's primary purpose is to publish articles, reviews, and announcements of interest to writing center personnel. We therefore invite manuscripts that explore issues or theories related to writing center dynamics or administration. We are especially interested in theoretical articles and in reports of research related to or conducted in writing centers. In addition to administrators and practitioners from college and university writing centers, we encourage directors of high school and middle school writing centers to submit manuscripts.

The Writing Instructor

The Writing Instructor is a peer-reviewed journal, publishing in print since 1981 and on the Internet since June, 2001. It focuses on issues related to writing pedagogy, research, and theory.
