The mission of Across the Disciplines is to provide information for— and an opportunity for interaction among—scholars interested in writing and speaking across the curriculum (CAC). We welcome contributions of the following kinds:
All contributions will be reviewed by our editorial board and signed reviews will be provided to contributors. The identity and affiliation of contributors will be concealed from reviewers to the extent the "manuscript" is created to conceal identity and affiliation. Contributions will be reviewed using the following procedures:
Articles: Will be reviewed by at least two members of the editorial board. Reviewers will provide comments on the article and will recommend (1) acceptance, (2) acceptance with specified revisions, (3) revision and resubmission, or (4) rejection. Decisions to accept or reject an article will be based on the quality of the article and its relevance to CAC, WAC, and writing theory, practice, and/or research.
Reviews: Unsolicited reviews will be reviewed by the Reviews Editor and one other member of the editorial board. Reviewers will provide comments on the review and will recommend (1) acceptance, (2) acceptance with specified revisions, (3) revision and resubmission, or (4) rejection. Decisions to accept or reject a review will be based on the quality of the review and the relevance to CAC, WAC, and writing theory, practice, and/or research of the publication being reviewed.
