Programmatic Perspectives is the journal of CPTSC, and it publishes articles related to programmatic issues in technical, professional, and/or scientific communication. Started in 2009, Programmatic Perspectives fills a unique niche in the publishing landscape with its emphasis on issues related to programs.

The editors of Programmatic Perspectives regard the journal as a

  • journal shared by a community
  • forum for the exchange of ideas and scholarship pertaining to technical, professional, and scientific communication and related pedagogy and program administration
  • living classroom for teaching the scholastic, writing, and editorial practices that the technical, professional, and scientific communication community recognizes, accepts, and applies to scholarship.
