- Congratulations to Aja Martinez, whose article,
“A Plea for Critical Race Theory Counterstory: Stock Story versus Counterstory Dialogues Concerning Alejandra’s ‘Fit’ in the Academy,” originally published in 42.2, has been selected for inclusion in The Best of the Independent Journals in Rhetoric and Composition!
Thank you for visiting the companion website to the print journal, Composition Studies, a peer-reviewed, biannual journal currently housed at the University of Cincinnati. This website includes submission policies and subscription information. It also hosts the journal’s archives, comprising full-text access to issues published five years prior to the present.
The oldest independent periodical in the field, Composition Studies is an academic journal dedicated to the range of professional practices associated with rhetoric and composition: teaching college writing; theorizing rhetoric and composing; administering writing related programs; preparing the field's future teacher-scholars. We welcome work that doesn’t fit neatly elsewhere.
The journal currently has an acceptance rate of 10-12%. It is indexed in EBSCO, ProQuest, ERIC, Gale/Cengage, and JSTOR.
