Rhetoric Society Quarterly

The journal addresses an interdisciplinary audience of scholars and students of rhetorics who work in communication studies, English studies, philosophy, politics and other allied fields.

Advances in the History of Rhetoric

Advances in the History of Rhetoric (AHR), the annual research publication of the American Society for the History of Rhetoric, welcomes contributions from scholars who take a historical approach to the study of rhetoric. AHR publishes scholarship on all historical aspects of rhetoric, in all historical periods, and with reference to all intellectual, national, and cultural communities.

Quarterly Journal of Speech

Published on behalf of the National Communication Association, the Quarterly Journal of Speech (QJS) features articles and book reviews of interest to those who take a rhetorical perspective on the texts, discourses, and cultural practices by which public beliefs and identities are constituted, empowered, and enacted. QJS adopts an ecumenical attitude towards the full array of best scholarship being produced under rhetoric’s broad purview, including work that advances and enriches long standing intellectual traditions, as well as theory and criticism that seeks to forge new intellectual frontiers.
