We are pleased to announce the renaming of Rhetoric & Communication Research Network (RCRN) to Rhetoric & Writing Research Network (RWRN) within the Humanities discipline to better reflect the scope of the network. In addition, the Organizational Communication Subject Matter eJournal currently included in RWRN will be consolidated with the same-name eJournal in Communication Studies Research Network (CommRN) and will distribute from CommRN only. All current subscribers will continue to receive the eJournal without interruption.

Rhetoric & Writing Research Network (RWRN)
From the ancient Greeks to the Internet, from politics to the workplace, rhetoric and writing addresses the methods and media by which people communicate and the skills and strategies that make that discourse effective. The Rhetoric & Writing Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps rhetoric and writing scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.

The Rhetoric & Writing Research Network indexes scholarly research in contemporary and classical rhetoric and writing theory, professional and technical communication, argumentation and persuasion, visual and other multimodal writing, and much more. SSRN fosters the interdisciplinary connection, helping scholars discover the latest research in their own and other related fields including classics, philosophy, communication studies, and cognitive science and by providing a unique window on current and historical approaches to discourse.
