Computers and Composition is a professional journal devoted to exploring the use of computers in composition classes, programs, and scholarly projects. It provides teachers and scholars a forum for discussing issues connected to computer use. The journal also offers information about integrating digital composing environments into writing programs on the basis of sound theoretical and pedagogical decisions and empirical evidence.
Computers and Composition welcomes articles, reviews, and letters to the editors that may be of interest to readers, including descriptions of computer-based composition and/or reading instruction, discussions of topics related to multimodal composing; explorations of controversial ethical, legal, or social issues related to the use of computers in composition programs; discussions of professional development and teacher education; explorations of tenure and promotion issues for scholars who work in electronic environments; studies of digital literacy; and discussions of how computers affect the form and content of discourse, the process by which discourse is produced, or the impact discourses have on audiences.
