Special Editors sought for Volume 43.1 June 2017
Deadline of December 15, 2015
The Australian Feminist Law Journal calls for submissions for the positions of Special Editor(s) of a Special Themed Issue of the Journal, namely Volume 43.1 (June 2017). Special Editors work in conjunction with the Editorial Board to create a theme, solicit articles, organize the referee process, make publication decisions and guide author revisions, subject to the oversight of the Board who will ensure consistency with the AFLJ’s focus on critical feminist approaches to law and justice, broadly conceived. As an international Critical Legal Journal we publish research informed by critical theory, cultural and literary theory, jurisprudential, postcolonial and psychoanalytic approaches, amongst other critical research practices. Each journal issue normally comprises 8 articles of approximately 8,000 words, including footnotes. Special Editors are encouraged to plan their Themed Issue around a conference, workshop, or other mode of organizing preparations for the research and publication theme, including a public call for papers.
The timeline for publication would be as follows:
- Call for Papers for Volume 43.1 deadline August 15, 2016
- Final perfect drafts after revisions due with Editorial Board January 15, 2017
- Publication in June 2017
Proposals to become Special Editor(s) of Volume 43.1 should be sent to the Managing Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
- the editor(s) names, institutions and relevant publications
- the proposed theme of the Special Issue in 300 words
- the significance of the chosen theme and the kind of papers which might be submitted
- the proposed timelines of the Volume
Early submission of Proposals is encouraged, and enquiries welcome. Submissions will be considered by the Editorial Board, and the outcome determined in January 2016. The position of Special Editor is honorary, as are all positions on the Editorial Board of the Australian Feminist Law Journal.
