Aims & Scope
Text Technology has always been a home for eclectic research in the domain of computer text processing, but is undergoing a transformation to better reflect the growing importance and breadth of scholarship and cultural production in the emerging academic and practical interdisciplinary field of professional communication. The expanded journal will contain traditional academic journal articles, case studies, digital works of art, design and layout (text-audio-video), as well as both scholarly and practical articles, interviews and symposia appealing to the community of professional communication practitioners. The journal will remain subject to strict peer review. We will take advantage of the expanded possibilities in presentation and design that the digital format will offer us. It will also enable us to achieve a new level of interactivity that more accurately reflects the state and direction of professional communication both as an academic area and applied practice.
Text Technology is edited by McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. In 2007, Joanne Buckley stepped down from being the editor and Text Technology came under new editorial management. As of 2007, Geoffrey Rockwell and Alexandre Sévigny became co-editors of the journal. In January of 2010, Alexandre Sévigny, will take over as Editor-in-Chief and a new editorial board will be announced. The journal will be relaunched and rebranded to reflect an expanded mandate serving the greater community of academics and practitioners of professional communication, of whom those with a strong interest in text processing are a very prominent subset.
