ABC-CLIO, a California-based academic and reference publisher, is seeking contributing scholars for a two-volume reference work on post-World War II globalization. The project is aimed at the undergraduate level. The General Editor is Dr. Ashish Vaidya, professor of economics at California State University Channel Islands.
The encyclopedia will include articles on the phenomenon of globalization from an economic, international business, political, legal, and environmental perspective. There will be entries on major trade and investment issues, business and economic sectors, regionalism, trade blocs, and international organizations, as well as major environmental, legal, political and cultural issues. Articles will vary in length from 3000-6000 words (depending on significance of topic). Encyclopedia of Globalization will also include a number of ancillary features, such as primary source documents on trade blocs and organizations, illustrations and maps of trade blocs and regional organizations, and tables, charts, and statistical information illustrating data trends and significant events.
We are seeking contributors for articles. Contributors will receive full authorial credit, a modest cash honorarium and/or copy of the full encyclopedia set (depending on contribution length and contributor preference).
If you are interested in contributing to this exciting and important reference project--one we hope will be the definitive reference work on post WWI globalization--we would be happy to email you a prospectus with a full description of the project--with deadline, compensation, and other pertinent information, including a table of contents. Please contact Dr. Vaidya at his email address.
