Classic J&C Monographs

J&C MONOGRAPHS CLASSICS SELECTION PROCESS

The task suggested by Jennifer McGill and the Publications Committee was daunting. For the 100th AEJMC anniversary, choose the top ten pieces published in Monographs since 1966. With more than 200 articles from many of the most renowned members of our field, daunting is an understatement.

However, the current editorial board of Kevin Barnhurst, University of Illinois at Chicago, Genelle Belmas, Cal State University, Fullerton, Sheri Broyles, University of North Texas, C. Patrick Burrowes, Penn State Harrisburg, Sharon Dunwoody, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Jennifer D. Greer, University of Alabama, Barry Hollander, University of Georgia, Kathleen S. Kelly, University of Florida, Kevin R. Kemper, University of Arizona, Charles Lubbers, University of South Dakota, Joseph J. Marren, Jr., Buffalo State College, Kathleen K. Olson, Lehigh University, Daniel Panici, University of Southern Maine, Carol J. Pardun, University of South Carolina, Paula Poindexter, University of Texas at Austin, Susanna Hornig Priest, George Mason University, Henry Puente, California State University, Fullerton, Sujatha Sosale, The University of Iowa, H. Denis Wu, Boston University, Kyu Ho Youm, University of Oregon immediately took up the challenge and provided a list of about 30 recommendations.

I came up with the final ten after I inputted the titles into Google Scholar and noted the number of citations for each one. I realize that this process probably biases toward older works (although only three of the 30 were from this century). Regardless, I am proud of the final ten overseen by four Monographs editors and appreciate our organization that makes the articles easily available to you. Live long and publish.
