Call for Special Issue Proposals:

This is an open call, inviting proposals of special issues on any topic likely to be of interest to the Journal’s readers. The submission deadline is 31 October 2018.


There is no set structure for the special issues.  The number and length of contributions in a special issue depend on the topic and the approach taken. There is some flexibility in this regard, as long as the selection of contributions is coherent and meets the Journal’s high standard for quality.  Most of our special issues have between eight and 15 contributions (including introduction and conclusion) but longer and shorter special issues may also be accepted.  On average, each contribution should not exceed 9,000 words, but here, too, there is some flexibility.  On all such issues, coherence and quality should be the guide.  Please go to the Journal’s submissions page to consult the style guide.
