Scope/Description:

The Southern Communication Journal SCJ is the nationally and internationally read scholarly publication of the Southern States Communication Association SSCA. The Southern Communication Journal publishes original scholarship that makes significant contributions to understanding the processes and consequences of human communication. The journal is not limited with regard to topic methodological approach or theoretical perspective although authors must establish the significance of the research soundness of methodological choices and appropriateness of theoretical perspectives. We seek to publish articles and book reviews that will be of interest to scholars researchers and practitioners of communication. As a journal that seeks to address the breadth of communication SCJ is particularly interested in manuscripts that move beyond addressing only WEIRD samples and topics people and topics drawn only from Westernwhite educated industrialized rich and democratic societies in the study of human communication. All authors regardless of topic approach or perspective are encouraged to recognize the situatedness of their authorship and scholarship and to account for how this situatedness enables and limits their work.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
