We are pleased to announce the launch of a new scholarly journal, The International Journal of Politics and Ethics. The first issue of the journal is scheduled for publication in March 2001.
The editorial staff, based at New England College, Henniker, NH, USA invites contributions from scholars working in any discipline engaged in research that examines politics and ethics, construed broadly, including their possible intersections. IJPE publishes book reviews, and we welcome offers to review recently published books.
The deadline for submission of materials for the first issue is 15 November 2000.
AIMS AND SCOPE
The International Journal of Politics and Ethics is published on behalf of the Center for International Politics and Ethics at New England College. It is intended as a forum for diverse interests and attitudes in all matters relating to politics and ethics, including their possible intersections. It is designed to encourage the exploration of matters of theory as well as broad issues arising from empirical contexts and the practical application of theory. No topic of critical interest is excluded from consideration, and the following are all within the purview of the journal: comparative and international politics; political philosophy and ethical theory; intellectual, legal and political history; and interdisciplinary material that discusses substantive social, political, and ethical problems of public concern.
Each issue contains full-length articles, shorter discussion articles and commentaries, book reviews, and occasionally correspondence. The final issue of each volume of the journal is dedicated to a special theme, to be announced in advance. The journal is open to the work of all scholars wherever they may be.
NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS
Articles are welcome from scholars within various disciplines—including economics, history, law, philosophy, political science, religion/theology, and sociology—which are able to bring their distinctive methodologies to bear on issues of interest to a broad readership. Unsolicited book reviews are accepted and offers to review books are welcome. Manuscripts are judged on their quality of writing as well as their relevance to public affairs. Manuscripts accepted for review are evaluated by a minimum of two scholars active in the field. Because we use anonymous peer reviews, copies of the article should have separate title pages. Submitted manuscripts must fit the following criteria:
1. Three hard copies of all manuscripts must be submitted. In addition, one copy should be submitted on a new 3.5-inch floppy disk clearly labeled with the author’s name and paper title, saved as a Word or Word Perfect document (PC or Mac). Alternatively, manuscripts may be submitted electronically as e-mail attachments to the Editor.
2. All material should be typed, double-spaced, and on one side of the page only. One-inch margins should be left on all sides.
3. Articles should not normally exceed thirty pages. Book reviews should be between 500-1,000 words.
4. Quotation marks should be double and not single unless they indicate a quotation within a quotation.
5. Manuscripts should be accompanied by an abstract of approximately 150 words.
6. Include a brief autobiographical sketch of the author(s) of around 100 words.
7. Notes should be numbered consecutively and placed at the end of the text. Authors are responsible for checking all quotations and supplying complete references, using the following examples as guidelines:
Books: Mervyn Frost, Ethics in International Relations: A Constitutive Theory (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press), p. 94.
Articles: Anthony D. Smith, “National Identity and the Idea of European Unity,” International Affairs 68:1 (1992), pp. 65-66.
