I think this applies equally in Rhetoric and Communications at least
from the perspective of someone who had looked for a place to
publish a rhetorical analysis of ecash: I wanted a peer reviewed
ejournal because I suspected that that would be more highly thought
of than some of the online journals and sites that aren't peer
reviewed. The ejournal I found was Kairos out of RPI; it looks like
they're doing a professional job
