Behind the Scenes

Twenty-nine faculty members in Elon’s School of Communications served as the Editorial Board that selected 10 undergraduate research papers for the 2016 spring issue of the Elon Journal.

From more than 100 research papers written in advanced School of Communications classes, 32 papers were submitted for blind review to the journal by students through encouragement and mentoring by capstone and other professors in the school.

Professors who served as the Editorial Board were Jonathan Albright, Bill Anderson, Janna Anderson, Lucinda Austin, Vanessa Bravo, Lee Bush, Naeemah Clark, David Copeland, Vic Costello, Dianne Finch, Kenn Gaither, Jessica Gisclair, Don Grady, Ben Hannam, Dan Haygood, Jooyun Hwang, Jonathan Jones, Julie Lellis, Harlen Makemson, William Moner, Phillip Motley, Max Negin, Tom Nelson, Paul Parsons, Glenn Scott, Michael Skube, Jessalynn Strauss, Hal Vincent, and Qian Xu.

Additional support was provided by Bryan Baker, who videotaped student introductions to their projects; Associate Dean Don A. Grady, who reviewed articles to help ensure the quality of the journal; and Tommy Kopetskie, who proofread articles and updated the publication’s website.
