The new issue of the Journal of Professional Communication (volume 3, issue 1) is published. You can read it here.
It is almost had dot believe that we have now been publishing for three years. During that time, we have showcased Canadian professional communication research in both official languages. We have also had research reported from the United States.
Canada has never had a peer-reviewed publication that documents and features the state of the various professions of professional communication in Canada. We are proud to provide that venue in the Journal of Professional Communication.
