Call for special issue/symposium in political communication
Political Communication is launching a call for the publication of a symposium or full special issue on one or more current topics of broad interest to our readership and members of the political communication divisions in the ICA and APSA.
A symposium will typically comprise 3-5 short papers of around 4000-5000 words each, with a short introduction of no more than 1000 words by the symposium editor(s).
A full special issue would comprise of 6-8 articles (around 8,000 words in length). Other (hybrid) models may be proposed to the editors.
Proposals are max 2 pages. They should include a clear account of the research question, a schedule of work, the names of the guest editor(s), the names of 3-4 proposed contributors and provisional titles, including a brief description of the proposed content of each article. All special issues will be open for general submissions and decisions about inclusion will be quality based, relying on peer reviewing.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is 1 March 2020. Proposal should be sent to Claes de Vreese. Proposals will then be considered by the editorial team of Political Communication. The successful team will be informed by mid-April 2020. The successful guest editor(s) will take on the full editorial task (including using the Journal’s manuscript management system) and work with the editorial team of Political Communication. Proposers and authors should be aware that this is a tight timetable to manage. The decision of the editorial team is final. Enquiries may be addressed to: the Editorial Office, Editor, Claes de Vreese.
