ACM SIGDOC (Special Interest Group Design of Communication) is releasing a new publication! Communication Design Quarterly (CDQ) seeks to be the premier information source for industry, management, and academia in the multidisciplinary field of the design and communication of information. Edited by Michael Albers and Liza Potts, it contains a mix of peer-reviewed articles, columns, experience reports, and brief summaries of interesting research results. CDQ is in the ACM Digital Library. A printed version will be sent to SIGDOC members and to libraries with an ACM institutional subscription. You can also read the most recent issues on this site.
Want to be involved?
We invite you to contribute in any of the following areas:
Peer-reviewed articles. Articles that cross discipline boundaries as they focus on the effective and efficient methods of designing and communicating information; disciplines will include technical communication, information design, information architecture, interaction design, and human-computer interaction.
Experience reports. Experience reports present project- or workplace-focused summaries of important technologies, techniques, or product processes.
Interesting research results. Short reports on interesting research or usability results that lack the rigor for a full article. For example, pilot studies, graduate student projects, or corporate usability studies where full details can’t be released.
We are also interested in proposals for guest editing special issues. As a guest editor, you would be responsible for providing two peer reviewed articles on a specific topic and, potentially, coordinating with the column editors so their columns can complement the issue’s theme.
By submitting your article for distribution in this Special Interest Group publication, you hereby grant to ACM the following non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide rights:
• to publish in print on condition of acceptance by the editor
• to digitize and post your article in the electronic version of this publication
• to include the article in the ACM Digital Library and in any Digital Library related services
• to allow users to make a personal copy of the article for noncommercial, educational or research purposes
As a contributing author, you retain copyright to your article and ACM will refer requests for republication directly to you. Therefore, ACM is asking all authors to include their contact information in their submissions. Opinions expressed in articles and letters are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily express the opinions of the ACM or SIGDOC. Author(s) should be contacted for reprint authorization.
