CFP: Journal of International and Global Studies « Postcolonialities.

The Journal for International and Global Studies (http://www.lindenwood.edu/jigs/) is seeking articles that address today’s
global world. In particular, it seeks high-quality, original work that is based on both theory and practice. This is a free online peer reviewed journal that is available to a global audience.  We encourage submissions from all fields, but pay particular attention to anthropology, education, geography, history, international relations, international management,
political science, religion, and sociology.   Specifically, the journal seeks:

  • Studies that critically examine (i.e., not just describe) global content, ideas, organizations, policies, or practices
  • Studies that situate phenomena within their local, national, regional, or global context
  • Studies that consider international and global phenomena historically and in the present
  • Studies that are explicitly based in conceptual frameworks, representing one or more established, emerging, or grounded paradigms
  • Studies that are based upon qualitative data, quantitative data, policy documents or other texts from existing scholarship
  • Studies that explore major international and global issues

Materials submitted to the JI&GS are judged on the following criteria:

(1) use of a theoretical or conceptual framework, (2) acknowledgment of relevant literature, (3) originality in analysis, (4) appropriateness of methodological approach, (5) contribution to the advancement of knowledge, (6) use of a global perspective, and (7) clarity of expression.

The deadline for submission of essays for our April 2011 issue is February 25th.

For details on Submission of Manuscripts see
http://www.lindenwood.edu/humanities/cigs/submissionGuidelines.pdf.

We will also publish book reviews in the journal.  If you are interested in reviewing a book on a topic dealing with globalization issues (broadly defined), please contact us.  We can order books from publishers that you
want to review.  We will send the books on to you for review.

We are also seeking high-quality book manuscripts dealing with globalization topics for publication through the Center.  If you are interested in publishing your manuscript through the Center, please send an abstract of your monograph or proposed monograph to Rscupin@lindenwood.edu

We look forward to receiving essays, book reviews, and proposals for book monographs from all over the world on globalization issues.
