CALL FOR AUTHORS: Encyclopedia of Environment & Society
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of Environment & Society, a new 4-color, 4-volume reference to be published in 2007 by Sage Publications.
This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and high-school libraries and comprises some 800 articles, covering all aspects of the world environment and related disciplines in the social sciences, including terms and practices, profiles of environment by country, biographies, and descriptions of environmental organizations.
Each article, ranging from 550 to 5,000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor for the encyclopedia is Paul Robbins, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of Arizona, who will review all the articles for editorial content and 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. Payment for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book credit at Sage Publications for article submissions totaling 500 to 1,000 words up to a free set of the finished encyclopedia (a $600 value) for contributions totaling 10,000 words. More than this, your involvement can help assure that credible and detailed data, description, and analysis are available to students of environmental issues. The deadline for article submission is May 1, 2006.
The list of available articles (Excel file) and Style Guidelines are prepared and will be sent to you in response to your inquiry. Please then select which unassigned articles may best suit your interests and expertise.
If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Encyclopedia of Environment & Society, please contact me by e-mail or the information below. Please provide a brief summary of your background in environmental and geographic issues. Thanks for your time and interest.
