The Interdisciplinary Journal of Signage and Wayfinding seeks to provide a forum where scholars from a variety of academic disciplines (such as urban design, planning, law, business, economics, transportation, engineering, communication, visual studies, art, architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design, and graphic design) may publish their scholarship dedicated to wayfinding and the importance of effective signage. The Journal is published twice annually and is currently being co-edited by Dr. Christopher Auffrey and Dr. Vikas Mehta of the School of Planning at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning (DAAP).

Authors are encouraged to submit their work by October 25, 2019 to be considered for the upcoming Volume, however, articles submitted after this date may still be considered. Articles from all disciplines will be considered for publication and as such, the Journal will contain both academic articles and reports prepared by practitioners. Authors will be expected to utilize the writing and citation conventions appropriate for publication in their discipline. The Journal will print reproductions of important scholarly articles to the extent that the author may obtain permission for the same.

The content of each article will be subject to double blind peer review. The editors will assign articles received to academics and/or practitioners in the related field of study. These reviewers include, among others, the members of the Academic Advisory Council for Sign Education and Research. To view author guidelines or to submit your work, please follow this link. Questions should be sent to Anna Parnigoni, Associate Managing Editor, at parnigam@mail.uc.edu.
