Call for Special Issue Proposals
The Australian Journal of Politics and History welcomes proposals for a special issue
of the journal, to constitute the September issue of 2019, Volume 65, Issue 3.
While it is envisaged that the special issue will be located within the discipline of
political science and international studies (broadly defined), the editorial team would
also be open to proposals within the broad disciplinary scope of the journal. For more
information, see here:
Special Issues would normally be between 65,000 and 70,000 words: the equivalent
of approximately eight articles of 8,000-9,000 words, inclusive of references. We would
be amenable to fewer or more articles if remaining within the overall word length.
The guest editor/s must ensure that all contributions adhere to the style of the journal
commit to appropriate peer review of all contributions. This may be coordinated by the
guest editor/s or through the journal’s normal (double blind) peer review system.
The guest editor/s must also ensure that final iterations of all contributions are
submitted to the journal no later than 15 May 2019.
Please note that acceptance of a proposal does not guarantee publication of the Special
Issue, either in whole or in part.
The special issue proposal should be submitted as a Word document to co-editor
Associate Professor Matt McDonald at <
by 15 June 2018. A
decision will be made within two weeks by members of the editorial committee, and
proposal guest editor/s will be notified by 30 June 2018.
Prospective guest editors must provide a detailed proposal that includes:
List of all proposed article titles and authors, along with their institutional
2-300 word abstract of each proposed article;
Overview outlining the purpose of the special issue, its rationale and the
anticipated contribution to existing literature/debate (up to 1,000 words);
Short CV of guest editor/s (no more than three pages each).
