"Commissioned by the American Communication
Association's Board of Directors he American Communication
Journal is a completely online, blind-reviewed publication,
dedicated to the conscientious analysis and criticism of significant
communicative artifacts. Redefining that which has been
traditionally recognized as a "text," the ACJ liberates
publication from the physical and financial firewalls of print by
placing the academic work online, complete with much material
previously relegated to a footnote, endnote, or the futile "see
also." Audio, video, graphics, virtual reality, live
interactivity -- are all at the researcher's supportive disposal.
