CALL FOR AUTHORS
The Encyclopedia of World Poverty
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of World Poverty, a new reference addressing the causes, effects, and ramifications of poverty worldwide.
This comprehensive project is a three-volume encyclopedia for college, public, and high-school libraries to be published by Sage Reference in 2006. The work is made up of some 800 articles, covering all aspects of world poverty and related disciplines in the social sciences, including terms and practices, profiles of poverty by country, biographies, and descriptions of poverty-relief organizations.
Each article, ranging from 400 to 5,000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor for the encyclopedia is Mehmet Odekon, Ph.D., Professor of Economics at Skidmore College. Dr. Odekon will review all the articles for academic consistency.
If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. We are offering a free set of the 3-volume work (a $300 value) as compensation to contributors. To earn the free set, contributors need to select and write articles that total 3,000 words. This amounts to a selection of 3 to 6 articles as a minimum. The deadline for article submission is August 15, 2005.
The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we will e-mail you the Article List (Word file) from which you can select topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, the list includes Style Guidelines that detail article specifications.
If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Encyclopedia of World Poverty, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a brief summary of your academic/publishing credentials. Thanks very much.
