Journal of Youth Studies
Call for Special Issue Proposals

In the ten years since the launch of the Journal of Youth Studies, there have been a number of requests by various individuals and groups to run special issues on a range of themes. Up until now we have tended to turn down these requests due to pressure on space from authors.

However, in 2008 we plan to increase the journal?s frequency to six issues per year, and this is likely to create opportunities for special issues.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Journal of Youth Studies, the final issue of 2008 will be reserved for a special issue and we would like to encourage interested readers to submit short proposals.

The person or group submitting the proposal will be expected to act as Guest Editor for the special issue, to oversee the refereeing process, to liaise with contributors with regards to revisions and to produce an issue containing a strong and coherent collection of papers within an agreed deadline.

Interested parties are requested to send a short proposal (approximately one page) describing the scope of the proposed theme and make a case to justify the dedication of a special issue to this particular theme at this point in time. Proposers should also highlight any editorial experience.

Send you proposals to:
