Call for Submissions


Call for Submissions for Inaugural Issue

The Journal of Critical Study of Communication & Disability (JCSCD), a new interdisciplinary, peer reviewed journal, seeks manuscripts for its upcoming issues. The  open access journal will publish global perspectives and welcomes methods of inquiry that challenge positivist and colonial forms of knowledge, and papers that challenge traditional and common discourses and ideologies.

JCSCD is designed to provide a forum for research, theory, practice, policy, curriculum, and community-based engagement using critical science related to people and groups who are marginalized and/or pathologized for their languaging and ways of communicating. It is a vehicle for connecting scholars, educators, and clinicians interested in promoting transformative research, policy, and practice. The overall aims of the journal are to advocate for linguistic justice, equity, and access for diverse communicators. The editors of JCSCD look forward to adopting innovations in scholarly publishing, like video articles and open peer review, and welcome queries about them for future issues.

Our international editorial team is composed of renowned scholars from New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States in the fields of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences as well as Education.
