Behind the Scenes

More than 30 faculty members in Elon’s School of Communications helped to select nine undergraduate research papers for the fall 2020 issue. The papers, primarily written in upper-level courses, are nominated for consideration by faculty mentors, then undergo a double-blind peer review process by the Editorial Board.

Professors who served on the Editorial Board for this issue were Bill Anderson, David Bockino, Vanessa Bravo, Lee Bush, Naeemah Clark, David Copeland, Vic Costello, Brooks Fuller, Kelly Furnas, Kenn Gaither, Jessica Gisclair, Don Grady, Ben Hannam, Sana Haq, Anthony Hatcher, Dan Haygood, Denise Hill, Jooyun Hwang, Jenny Jiang, Laura Lacy, Byung Lee, Derek Lackaff, Barbara Miller, William Moner, Phillip Motley, Tom Nelson, Jane O’Boyle, Glenn Scott, Kathleen Stansberry, Jessalyn Strauss, Amanda Sturgill, Hal Vincent, and Qian Xu.

Thanks also go to Associate Dean Kenn Gaither, who reviewed articles to help ensure the quality of the journal, and Tommy Kopetskie, who proofread articles, designed the online publication, and updated the publication’s website.
