Journal of Response to Writing

The Journal of Response to Writing is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes papers based on research, theory, and/or practice that meaningfully contribute to an understanding of how response practices lead to better writing. Articles contribute to first, second and foreign language writing, teaching, and response practices in order to

  • Provide a venue for theorizing and reporting ground-breaking research on response to writing
  • Invite writing theorists, researchers, and practitioners to a venue to share their work with one another and colleagues in adjacent fields, most notably Composition, Applied Linguistics, and Foreign Language teaching vis à vis L1 and L2 writing
  • Provide new or inexperienced teachers with immediate suggestions for use in giving, encouraging, or managing responses to their students’ writing

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
