The multi-disciplinary Journal of Writing Research is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed journal that "primarily publishes papers that describe scientific studies of the processes by which writing is produced or the means by which writing can be effectively taught." Launched in 2008 and currently in its tenth volume, this open access journal publishes original research, as well as literature reviews and boasts an editorial board from around the world. Examples of articles from recent issues include "The co-regulation of writing activities in the classroom" and "Rarely say never: Essentialist rhetorical choices in college students' perceptions of persuasive writing." Other subject areas covered by this journal include "Developmental aspects of writing ability," "Social and cultural aspects of writing," "Cognitive processes in writing," and more. The editors note that while this journal's articles "are primarily intended for use in the scientific community," its "interdisciplinary nature also makes it accessible to teacher educators, curriculum developers, communication consultants, and other interested practitioners."
