Communication Research Reports publishes original research in the form of brief empirical articles (initial submissions are limited to 3,500 words maximum, including the abstract, and references, with no more than two tables or figures) on a variety of topics of human communication. Empirical studies in the general contexts of interpersonal, organizational, communication traits, intercultural, nonverbal, small group, health, persuasion, mass, political, relational, computer mediated, life-span, and instructional communication are appropriate for submission. Consistent with the mission of the journal, the main portion of submitted manuscripts should focus on the method, results, and interpretation of the results. However, manuscripts must contain a concise theoretical rationale and relevant literature review. All data analyses should report relevant effect size statistics, and we recommend reporting other diagnostics (such as, but not limited to: observed power, tests of significance inflation, and test of insufficient variance, among others) at the Author’s discretion. Papers that do not adhere to the required guidelines may be rejected by the editorial office.
