Website: http://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/journal/journal-of-communication-design/
Deadline to submit abstracts for 2015 publication: 1 July 2014

Editor-in-Chief: Teal Triggs, Royal College of Art, UK

Bloomsbury Publishing is delighted to announce that from 2015 it will be the publisher of Journal of Communication Design: Interdisciplinary and Graphic Design Research, the official publication of Icograda (The International Council of Communication Design). Journal of Communication Design was originally launched by Icograda in 2009 as an online publication called Iridescent with the aim of providing a platform to share ideas and findings between scholars and researchers across different cultures and to facilitate collaboration between the members of the Icograda network.

Edited by an international editorial team, led by Teal Triggs, the new incarnation of the journal will build on the rich groundwork already established.

As a full double-blind peer reviewed publication, available in print and online, it will develop and critically examine the emerging discourses in research related to contemporary communication and graphic design practice, education and methods, as well as their history, theory and criticism. It will feature theoretical, historical and applied research in communication design, exploring both analogue and digital forms.

Journal of Communication Design (formerly Iridescent) is the official publication of Icograda (The International Council of Communication Design).

We would like to invite academics, scholars, educators, and researchers from disciplines related to communication design to submit their work to Journal of Communication Design.

The editors will consider papers from a range of disciplines related to graphic and communication design, including but not restricted to: cultural geography, cultural studies, education, ethnography, design history, journalism, museum studies, semiotics and linguistics, psychology, and sociology.

Reasons to publish in Journal of Communication Design:
