The Northwest Communication Association (NWCA) is accepting nominations for the position of Editor of the Northwest Journal of Communication (NWJC). Self-nominations are welcome. The appointment is for three years and begins in Spring 2018. The new editor will work with the current editor during a transition period.  The new editor will be responsible for the 2019-2021 editions of the journal.


The NWJC is a peer reviewed, EBSCO listed journal, publishing one issue per year of quality scholarship on a variety of communication topics.  The editor need not be a resident of the Pacific Northwest, but will be expected to attend our annual conference every April in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Submissions to the journal are not limited to residents of the Northwest or members of the NWCA. The editorial board may include scholars from across the United States, and can be composed of members of the editor’s choosing, in consultation with the NWCA Executive Council (EC). The EC will also work with the editor to find a suitable list of reviewers for each edition of the NWJC, ensuring a timely and thorough review of potential submissions.
A complete nomination includes: (1) a letter of application from the candidate that includes the candidate’s experience for the task of journal editing; (2) the candidate’s curriculum vitae; and (3) contact information for two references who can speak to the candidate’s qualifications for the position. Please send your nomination to Kevin T. Jones, NWCA President (


Review of nominations begins on February 1, 2018, and continues until the position is filled.  The goal is to present the new editor at the 2018 NWCA annual conference in April 2018.  Please feel free to direct any and all questions or queries to Kevin Jones (
