STC Grants Focus on Research for Practitioners

$15.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

More than 90% of STC members are practitioners in technical communication, people who work in business and government rather than academia. Why, then, do we have special issues of Technical communication on research—and why do we have an STC program that funds research?

Because STC practitioners are eager to have a research basis for what we do. In the business world, we make planning decisions about the organization, content, instructional style, and presentation format of our work, whether in print or online. We want answers based on solid research to help us make these decisions and convince others that the decisions are wise.
