About JPRE

Mission:

The Journal of Public Relations Education (JPRE) is devoted to the presentation of research and commentary that advances the field of public relations education. JPRE invites submissions in the following three categories. All submissions should follow the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA).

Research Articles: Manuscripts are expected to demonstrate that the pedagogical research is theoretically grounded and offers significant contributions to public relations education. All methods of research are considered. Manuscripts should be a maximum of 8,500 words including figures, tables and references.

Teaching Briefs: Briefs are short articles that are likely to focus on the process of educating students. Topics may deal with teaching approaches, instructional materials, assessment practices, and related topics. Preference will be given to manuscripts that include assessment of the suggested practice and detailed guidelines for implementation. Manuscripts should be a maximum of 3,000 words including figures, tables and references.

Book/Software Reviews:  If you would like to volunteer to be considered for a review or would like to suggest a work for review, please contact the editor.

History:

The Journal of Public Relations Education (JPRE) was approved by the membership of the Public Relations Division of AEJMC at the annual meeting during the 2014 conference in Montreal.  JPRE replaces and expands upon the PRD’s long-running pedagogy publication, Teaching Public Relations Monographs (TPR)TPR offered brief articles presenting the results of teaching research or offering suggested classroom practices.  JPRE will continue to offer these brief articles on the teaching, but will also publish longer articles presenting the results of theoretically grounded research as well as reviews of books, textbooks and software that may help to guide the reader’s choices.
