JOURNAL OF EUROPEAN SOCIAL POLICY
Special Issues: Call for Proposals
In the 2009 the Journal of European Social Policy will increase to five
issues a year. One of these will normally be a Special Issue.
We now invite proposals for the 2009 Special Issue. Interested parties are
requested to send a short proposal (no more than 1000 words) describing the
scope of the proposed theme; the papers that it would contain; timetable.
They are also welcome to make proposals as to referees. They should make a
case to justify the dedication of a special issue to this particular theme
and its topicality. They should also highlight any editorial experience
they already have.
Proposals should be submitted not later than 31st October 2007. The
Editorial Board of the Journal will decide by 30 November 2007 which, if
any, of the proposals should be accepted. The material for the Special
Issue will be required in final form not later than 31 July 2008.
The person or group submitting the proposal will be expected to act as
Guest Editor for the Special Issue, to liaise with contributors with
regards to revisions and to produce an issue containing a strong and
coherent collection of papers. One member of the JESP Editorial Board will
be assigned to work with the Guest Editor in overseeing the refereeing
process, and to ensure, on behalf of the Editorial Board, that the
collection as a whole and the individual papers meet the normal quality
standards of the Journal.
Proposals should be sent electronically to Professor G J Room at the
University of Bath ([log in to unmask]).
