IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to applied research on professional communication--including but not limited to technical and business communication. It has been published since 1957 by the Professional Communication Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Readers include technical communicators, engineers, scientists, information designers, editors, linguists, translators, managers, business professionals, and others from around the globe who practice, conduct research on, and teach others about effective professional communication. The journal's research falls into three main categories: (1) the communication practices of technical professionals, such as engineers and scientists, (2) the practices of professional communicators who work in technical or business environments, and (3) research-based methods for teaching professional communication. The journal publishes original, empirical research that focuses on preparing, organizing, processing, editing, collecting, conserving, teaching, and disseminating any form of professional communication--print or electronic, written or spoken. Research published in the journal includes, but is not limited to, the following:  Professional discourse (e.g., communication in virtual teams, phone/online help systems); Web development, including usability and accessibility of user interfaces; Technical publications (e.g., manuals, proposals, reports); Electronic/print publishing (e.g., publication management, technical editing); Oral presentations.
