Call for Authors:
The Encyclopedia of World Geography
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the new Encyclopedia of World Geography. This is a three-volume encyclopedia for public, high-school, and college libraries to be published by Facts On File. The work is made up of some 800 articles about the human, political, and physical geographies of countries, states, cities, land features, climate, and other geographical subjects including biographies, profiles, and descriptions of historical events affecting geography. As a world reference, the articles cover numerous international subjects, from economic associations to political structures.
Each article, ranging from 350 to 4,500 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor for the Encyclopedia is Robert W. McColl, Ph.D., University of Kansas, who will review each article for content and consistency.
If you are interested in contributing to the Encyclopedia, it can be a notable publication addition to your resume and broaden your publishing credits. There is a small honorarium paid for each article, $20 to $135, depending on article length. Each contributor needs to write 5 to 15 articles (many are quite short) by May 1, 2004.
The list of articles is already prepared, and as a next step we e-mail you the article list (Excel file) from which you can select unassigned topics that best fit your expertise and schedule. Additionally, you will receive Style Guidelines that detail article specifications.
If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with The Encyclopedia of World Geography, please contact me by e-mail or phone below. Please provide a brief summary of your background. Thanks very much.
