We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Multimedia
Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World, a new print and electronic
reference that will look at women today around the world and delve into the
contexts of being female in the 21st century. Thus the scope of the
encyclopedia will focus on women’s status starting in approximately 2000
and look forward. The work will present state-of-the-art research,
ready-to-use facts. The 1,000 signed entries (with cross-references and
recommended readings) will cover issues in contemporary women’s and gender
studies and the articles will include information relevant to the following
academic disciplinary contexts: women in different cultures/countries; arts
and media; business and economics; criminal justice; education; family
studies; health; media; military; politics; science and technology; sports;
environmental studies; and religion. We are making assignments with a
submission due date of December 1, 2009.
This comprehensive project will be published in stages by SAGE Reference
and will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and
digital product available to students via the library’s electronic
services. The General Editors, who will be reviewing each submission to the
project, are Dr. Mary Zeiss Stange of Skidmore College, and Dr. Carol K.
Oyster of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is
a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature,
redefining women’s issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it can be a notable
publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits.
SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book credits for
smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product or access to the
online product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.
The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we
will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can select
topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, Style and
Submission Guidelines will be provided that detail article specifications.
If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference
with the Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World, please contact
me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a brief summary of your
academic/publishing credentials in women’s and gender issues.
Thanks very much.
