Public Affairs Quarterly solicits proposals for a special issue in the 2014 volume. A special issue comprises 4-5 papers, of 6,000-9,000 words each. Papers will be reviewed by the special issue's editor, and also peer-reviewed by the journal. Proposals should be related to any area of the journals coverage, of which details can be found on its website:
Proposals should include:
1. A description of the topic and its relationship to the journal (250-500 words);
2. A list of contributors and titles; and
3. Abstracts of the proposed papers (250 words each).
Preliminary inquiries may be submitted without abstracts, but the contributor list should not be merely speculative; some contact with those contributors--and reasonable expectation of their participation--should be established.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PAQ is very pragmatist-friendly. Go go gadget Dewey!
