The Process and Prospects for Professionalizing Technical Communication.
Savage, Gerald J.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v29 n4 p355-81 1999
Reviews economic, sociopolitical, and ideological factors that characterize the modern professions and argues that the technical communication field, at best, only partially meets the criteria. Argues that prospects for professional status might be improved by developing a critical consciousness of the processes of professionalization and concertedly acting in ways that facilitate those processes.
