Abstract:When I became editor of Technical Communication 16 months ago, I was faced wtih a significant challenge. A recent survey of STC members had shown that most believed strongly that we should publish a journal, but relatively few of them actually read it. Instead of serving the needs of the informed practitioner, Technical Communication was perceived to be an academic journal. My mission, then, was to change the membership's perceptions of the journal's purpose and audience by making appropriate changes to its content and appearance.
