This new publication venue might be of interest to some of the list members:

Qualitative Communication Research (QCR)
(http://www.lcoastpress.com/journal.php?id=14) is a refereed academic
journal that publishes articles of interest to scholars in
communication studies and allied fields whose work is primarily
qualitative in orientation. We are especially interested in articles
that bring a qualitative perspective and a communicative lens to
addressing significant social and practical issues in human life.

All qualitative approaches are welcome, including, but not limited to,
ethnography of speaking, participant observation, interviewing,
grounded theory, focus groups, autoethnography, discourse analysis,
and all forms of ethnography including critical, artistic, literary,
poetic, and performance. Mixed-method studies are welcome unless they
are primarily quantitative, as are experimental forms of presentation.

Excluded are cultural theoretical essays without an empirical
grounding, calls for research, and textual criticism. In addition, QCR
publishes “Issues in Qualitative Communication Research,” a forum
where issues or controversies in the field can be addressed in shorter
point-of-view essays.
