JOURNAL OF EUROPEAN SOCIAL POLICY – Call for Proposals Special issue 2017

Invitation for proposals for the 2017 Special Issue of JESP. Interested parties are requested to send a proposal by 31st October 2016

The propsal should be short (no more than 1000 words) describing the scope of the proposed theme; the papers that it would contain; the timetable. They should make a case to justify the dedication of a special issue to this particular theme and its topicality. They should demonstrate that the special issue would have an overall analytical and theoretical coherence. They should also highlight any editorial experience they already have. They are also welcome to make proposals as to referees.

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 the JESP administrator’s office at the University of Edinburgh ( )

Proposals should be submitted not later than 31st October 2016.

The Editorial Board of the Journal will decide by 30 November 2016 which, if any, of the proposals should be accepted. The material for the Special Issue will be required in final form not later than 15 June 2017.
