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or when new theoretical results are being evaluated through experimentation and the theoretical results are previously unpublished.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: Asian Journal of law and Society

Sponsor: KoGuan Law School at Shanghai Jiao Tong University

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Website: http://journals.cambridge.org/images/fileUpload/images/ALS_IFC.pdf

Description: 

We are pleased to announce that from 2014, Cambridge University Press and KoGuan Law School at Shanghai Jiao Tong University will publish an independent, peer-reviewed publication, the Asian Journal of Law and Society (AsianJLS).

AsianJLS will encourage empirical and multi-disciplinary research in law and its relationship with society in Asia. The journal will present research that brings an Asian perspective to socio-legal issues of global concern, or that which uses Asia as a starting point for a comparative exploration of topics in law and society.

On behalf of the Editors-in-Chief of the new journal, Professor Doctor Ji Weidong said; ’The initiation of this Journal is an event of significance for both the scholarly circle of sociology of law and the scholarship on Asian law. From now on, legal scholars in Asia in particular, as well as scholars interested in Asia in general, will have a communicative platform and forum on their own and a public space that belongs to all. Through this Journal, Asian experts, scholars and intellectuals can voice their concerns on the restructuring and order reconstruction of the world, as well as to heed opinions of diversity from different regions and circles of civilization.’

The unique combination of an editorial base in Asia and an international editorial team creates a forum for Asian and Western scholars to exchange ideas of interest to Asian scholars and professionals, those working in or on Asia, as well as all working on law and society issues globally.

Title of Publication: Democratic Theory

Publisher: Berghahn

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Website: None provided

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.

Title of Publication: Ibero-American Journal of Legislative Studies – RIEL

Sponsor: 

Publisher: Getulio Vargas Foundation - FGV, Rio de Janeiro

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Website: None provided

Description: 

Dear colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce the launch of the new issue of the Ibero-American Journal of Legislative Studies – RIEL. The Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) is in charge of editing RIEL, which will be published as an electronic journal only.

(http://bibliotecadigital.fgv.br/ojs/index.php/riel/index)

The Ibero-American Journal of Legislative Studies – RIEL – RIEL is an international journal mainly devoted to the publication of original studies and research on legislative issues and problems. Nevertheless, I would like to stress that RIEL also has a much broader scope. Therefore, we encourage new submissions that include other topics related to comparative politics and political institutions having to do with the executive branch, judiciary, political parties, media, electoral rules, federalism, and so forth.

In this new issue we have put together a group of excellent original articles. Taeko Hiroi and Lucio Renno offer a fascinating analysis of the lawmaking process in the Brazilian Congress. They demonstrate that the executive’s success rate in Congress is contingent upon the size of the governing coalition. As expected, extremely large coalitions tend to deliver higher rates of success. To the surprise of many, however, the same is also true with regard to relatively small governing coalitions.

The paper by Bernd Weber and Sérgio Praça is also concerned with the legislative success of the executive in Congress. However, they comparatively analyze sub-national governments both in a presidential system, using the case of Brazil, and in a parliamentary system, using Germany as a comparative case study, from 1990 to 2010. Different from agenda-setting analytical perspectives, they show that coalition management and party politics play a more significant role.

Felipe Nunes provides a comparative assessment of all Latin American presidential elections since 1990, forcefully arguing in favor of the benefits of reelection. He demonstrates that incumbent governments, especially in multiparty systems, tend to moderate their policy positions in order to win the second round of an election. In addition to providing incentives for politicians to align their behaviors with voters’ preferences, reelection tends to mitigate the emergence of what he calls new-populist governments in the region.

Thiago Silame and João Francisco Meira investigate the process of creating a regulatory apparatus by examining the emergence of Brazil’s regulatory regime during the 1990s. They claim that whereas other regulatory agencies, such as Telecommunications (ANATEL) and Energy (ANEEL), were created as a consequence of a delegation process from the legislature to the executive according to cartel theory, the logic of ANAC followed information theory, in which the legislature distinguished itself as the key player in setting up the institutional profile of the regulatory agency.

The paper by Manoel Leonardo Santos also investigated the influence of interest groups on legislative outcomes in the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies. In order to do so, he analyzed the role played by two complementary lobbies: the National Confederation of Industry (CNI), what he calls the corporatist lobby, and the influence of diffuse non corporatist organizations, which he calls the pluralist lobby.

Enjoy,

Carlos Pereira, Editor

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. Through service learning experiences, students come to appreciate the importance of participating as responsible citizens in community life. 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. We gladly accept submissions at any time for consideration in the Journal. Submissions received after the deadline for the next issue will be considered for the following issue.

Title of Publication: Journal of Women and Human Rights in the Middle East

Sponsor: 

Publisher: James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Website: None provided

Description: 

We invite submissions for the second volume of the Journal of Women and Human Rights in the Middle East. Despite the flourishing of studies on both secular and Islamic feminism in the region during these last few decades, very little is still known about the contribution of these competing frameworks on advancing the status of women in the Middle East. In order to bridge this gap in the literature, this issue aims to explore Islamic feminism and its role in promoting women’s rights in contemporary Middle East.

More specific research questions include, but are not limited to:

• Is the Islamic faith at odds with feminism? How does one conceptualize Islamic feminism and how does this conceptualization vary across the region?

• What strategies have Islamic feminist movements adopted to achieve their goals? Is it more effective to work within the existing system, or attempt to redefine the system?

• What are the contradictions that Islamic feminist theorists and interpreters have to work through to achieve the fine balance between modernity and patriarchy?

• In what ways has the socio-political, and cultural context shape the discourse on Islamic feminism in the Middle East during these last few decades?

• How can a balance between Sharia and modernity be achieved in increasingly dynamic Middle Eastern societies, especially these societies currently in transition?

Final papers submissions should not exceed 8000 words, double-spaced with standard margins, complete with footnotes and bibliography.

Who May Submit:

Submissions are welcome from Undergraduate and Graduate students from academic or policy institutions in both the United States and the Middle East. Ph.D. students in advanced stages of research are especially encouraged to apply.

Submission deadline:

Paper proposals/Abstracts (300-500 words) and a C.V. must be submitted by November 30th. Paper proposals selected for publication will be notified by December 10th. Final papers are due by January 30th, 2014.

Deadline: Rolling deadline; see website

Website: None provided

Description: 

With an interdisciplinary and international focus, Policy Sciences encourages a diversity of perspectives. The editors especially welcome conceptual and empirical innovation, together with the potential richness and insight of comparative orientation. The journal offers articles that examine the normative aspects of policy sciences; conceptual articles addressing concrete policy issues; articles on particularly controversial pieces of analysis; opposing perspectives, including critiques and rejoinders on articles already published, which open the journal to an exchange of views rather than restricting it to pure presentation; and special issues that analyze specific topics in depth. Policy Sciences favors, but does not publish exclusively, works that either explicitly or implicitly utilize the policy sciences framework. The policy sciences are a distinctive subset within the policy movement in that they embrace the traditions of innovated and elaborated by Harold D. Lasswell and Myers S. McDougal. The policy sciences can be applied to articles with greater or lesser intensity to accommodate the focus of an author’s work. At the minimum, this means taking a problem oriented, multi-method or contextual approach.

Description: 

St Antony’s International Review (STAIR) is a peer-reviewed, academic journal established in 2005 by graduate members of St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford. STAIR invites authors to submit original research manuscripts on topics of contemporary relevance in international affairs.

STAIR seeks to reflect an ethos of open, accessible, and engaged intellectual debate. It provides a forum in which emerging scholars can publish their work alongside established academics and policy-makers, and operates a double-blind peer review process.

STAIR seeks to encourage cross-diciplinary dialogue of contemporary international relevance through a bi-annual publication consisting of both a general and a themed section.

STAIR will review manuscripts that contain original, previously unpublished material of up to 6,000 words (including footnotes with complete bibliographic information). Authors are asked to include a word count and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Submissions are sent to external reviewers for comment. Decisions can generally be expected within three months.
