Organized Crime: An International Encyclopedia Vol.1 and 11. Call for contributing writer's and documents editor
We are looking for contributors (subject experts, professors, graduate students) and a documents editor for the 2-volume, illustrated ORGANIZED CRIME: A INTERNATIONAL ENCYCLOPEDIA, VOL.I and II, to be published by ABC-CLIO in the latter part of 2006. Comprehensive in scope and written by top scholars in the field, ORGANIZED CRIME: AN INTERNATIONAL ENCYCLOPEDIA will be the definitive reference work on Transnational Organized Crime for years to come.
The volume consists of sixteen chapters, broken down into three sections. Section 1 is devoted largely to historical antecedents, causation theories and group dynamics and provides a global overview (by region) of the organized crime problem. Section 2 covers the global organized crime problem by addressing specific activities, enterprises and sources of financing. Section 2 also addresses some key issues such as Hi-tech and Cyber-crimes. Section 3 addresses the global impact of organized crime, the criminal-terrorist nexus and international efforts to combat organized crime and corruption. Section 3 also contains several articles, which address the future of global organized crime and itís control and concludes by providing an agenda for future research.
Articles run between 3 and 10 manuscript pages in length, depending on the subject. All entries will be signed and all writers will be listed on contributor page. Small honoraria will be paid and/or copies of the full encyclopedia set will also be offered. Contributors may write more than one entry. Full authorial credit, including name and affiliation, will be listed, both with the entry and on the contributor's page. Given the scope and present relevance of this project it is our desire to attract as many knowledgeable scholars as possible. The submission deadline for articles is November 30, 2005. This deadline refers to total word counts. With this in mind certain exceptions to the above will be made on a case-by-case basis.
If you are interested in contributing to this exciting and important project please contact us as soon as possible. I will then be happy to email you a prospectus with a full description of the project, including a list of available entries. Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you cannot contribute, perhaps you can forward names and email addresses of scholars (including graduate students) who might be interested, or forward this email to them.
All writer's, selected for this project will need to provide a short CV and a writing sample.
