Title of Publication: Journal of Experimental Research

Sponsor: Experimental Research Section

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Website: None provided

Description: 

The Journal of Experimental Political Science (JEPS) features research – be it theoretical, empirical, methodological, or some combination thereof - that utilizes experimental methods or experimental reasoning based on naturally occurring data. We define experimental methods broadly: research featuring random (or quasi-random) assignment of subjects to different treatments in an effort to isolate causal relationships between variables of interest. JEPS embraces all of the different types of experiments carried out as part of political science research, including survey experiments, laboratory experiments, field experiments, lab experiments in the field, natural and neurological experiments.

We invite authors to submit concise articles (around 2500 words) that immediately address the subject of the research (although in certain cases initial submissions can be longer than this limit with the understanding that if accepted the paper will be shortened within the word constraints). We do not require lengthy explanations regarding and justifications of the experimental method. Nor do we expect extensive literature reviews of pros and cons of the methodological approaches involved in the experiment unless the goal of the article is to explore these methodological issues. We expect readers to be familiar with experimental methods and therefore to not need pages of literature reviews to be convinced that experimental methods are a legitimate methodological approach. We also consider more lengthy articles in appropriate cases, as in the following examples: when a new experimental method or approach is being introduced and discussed, when a meta-analysis of existing experimental research is provided, or when new theoretical results are being evaluated through experimentation and the theoretical results are previously unpublished. Finally, we strongly encourage authors to submit null or inconsistent results from well-designed, executed, and analyzed experiments as well as replication studies of earlier experiments.

Title of Publication: Democratic Theory

Sponsor: 

Publisher: Berghahn

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Description: 

Call for Papers

Deadline March, 31, 2014, ongoing (rolling) thereafter

Democratic Theory (http://journals.berghahnbooks.com/dt/) is a peer-reviewed journal published and distributed by Berghahn. It encourages philosophical and interdisciplinary contributions that critically explore democratic theory – in all its forms. Spanning a range of views, the journal offers a crossdisciplinary forum for diverse theoretical questions to be put forward and systematically examined. It encourages western as well as non-western ideas and is actively based on the premise that there are many forms of democracies and many types of democrats.

As a forum for debate, the journal challenges theorists to ask and answer the perennial questions that plague the field of democratisation studies:

Why is democracy so prominent in the world today?
What is the meaning of democracy?
Will democracy continue to expand?
Are current forms of democracy sufficient to give voice to ‘the
people’ in an increasingly fragmented and divided world?
Who leads in democracy?
What types of non-western democratic theories are there?
Should democrats always defend democracy?
Should democrats be fearful of de-democratisation, post
democracies and the rise of hybridised regimes?

For too long, the discourse of democracy has been colonized and predetermined by the West. Now more than ever there is a need to globalize – and by extension democratize – how we think about democracy: Democratic Theory provides the means for these essential debates to germinate and develop.

Colleagues are invited to submit research articles, excerpts of interviews, critical commentaries, and review essays (see http://journals.berghahnbooks.com/dt/index.php?pg=notes for more). Papers received by, or before, March 31, 2014 will be given full consideration for inclusion in our 2nd issue of 2014. Papers received thereafter will be aimed at later issues.

Description: 

The Journal for Civic Commitment is dedicated to growing and strengthening the discussion around service learning, which connects the academic curriculum to service and civic engagement in communities, both locally and globally.

Service learning is the conduit through which community colleges help to create an informed, participatory citizenry.

Service learning brings examples of current issues we face as a nation, and as a planet, to the forefront of academic curricula, and allows students to experience them firsthand. In addition, students examine their own roles, their own actions, in the preservation and maintenance of democracy.

The Journal for Civic Commitment offers research and theories, strategies, and tips and techniques to readers. It is dedicated to disseminating research-based and practical information to service learning practitioners, coordinators, and administrators.

Submission deadlines for the Fall and Spring issues of The Journal for Civic Commitment are: February 29 and August 30, respectively.
