Special Issue proposals must be up to 5,000 words long and should include:

  • A short rationale covering conceptual, empirical, and methodological approach, explaining the following: Why this SI would be of value; what it adds to the literature; why the selected papers/case studies/approaches are proposed; and how the SI is more than the sum of its parts.
  • Paper abstracts
  • Biographical notes of contributors  (max 100 words)
  • Biographical notes of guest editor (s) (max 200 words) 

Special Issues are expected to include seven to eight articles and a substantial Special Issue introduction. Articles should be approximately 8,000 words long all included (references, notes etc).
