Journal of Writing Research

Journal of Writing Research is an international peer-reviewed on-line journal, freely accessible for all. The journal started in 2008 and originated from the initiative of several SIG Writing members who significantly contribute to the editorial work. The current editors of the journal are Luuk van Waes (University of Antwerp, Belgium), Gert Rijlaarsdam (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Mark Torrance (Nottingham Trent University, UK) and Charles MacArthur, University of Delaware, USA.

SIG Writing’s Prepublication archive

In 2005, SIG Writing started a free and open access publication server containing book chapters, theses, technical reports, research instruments, SIG Writing conference papers, and other prepublications.

We invite all writing researchers to add their papers, reports and instruments to this server. PhD supervisors are kindly asked to stimulate PhD and MA students to upload their theses.

Action editors are Eva Lindgren (Sweden), Marielle Leijten (Belgium) and Daphne van Weijen (The Netherlands). They will check each uploaded entry for completeness and general acceptability and then immediately publish the entry. Visit the server at www.sigwritingpublications.org. After having registered as a user, you can download all contents and choose the frequency of notifications about newly published entries.


Besides the ”Studies in Writing“ book series, conference proceedings (or books that resulted from conference papers) offer a valuable impression of the field of writing research at a given time. SIG Writing conferences led to the following editions:
