Call for Papers
Deadline: 31 July 2019

For this special issue of Contemporary Social Science, we welcome papers which examine the changing world of work and employment.
Changes to work and employment raise many psychological, political, economic, geographic, social and legal questions, which make multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and even ‘post-disciplinary’ social science research critical.
Original, sector-based contributions which have implications for the world of work and employment in any corner of the globe are particularly welcome. Firmly empirically-based studies are preferred, but one or two well-argued theoretical reviews will also be considered.
It is anticipated that current and future issues, such as the following, will be covered:
- The gender pay gap;
- In-employment poverty;
- Seeking “decent work” or “quality work”;
- The gig economy;
- Automation in employment;
- The post-Brexit world;
- Migration in agriculture;
- Working structures in construction;
- The work/life balance.
Authors should indicate that they wish their manuscript to be considered for inclusion in this special issue.
The closing date for the submission of papers is 31st July 2019.
The editor of this issue would be happy to review plans for papers in advance.
