Federalism-e is an electronic student journal about federalism and multi-level governance put forth by the Canadian Network of Federalism Studies (CNFS) in collaboration with its partner institutes at the Royal Military College and Queen’s University. This annual journal will publish papers by undergraduate students, which are reviewed by an editorial board composed of their peers. An opportunity now exists for exceptional undergraduate students to have their work published and recognized by the academic community.
Federalism-e is now accepting submissions for volume 7. Papers may address any aspect of federalism studies, intergovernmental relations or multi-level governance in a Canadian or international context. We are also looking for submissions for a special edition volume 8. Papers for this volume should address questions ethnofederalism. This refers to a federal system where component territories and governments are intentionally divided along ethnic lines. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, the new Iraq constitution or Yugoslav federalism. The multidisciplinary nature of the journal welcomes submissions from all fields of scholarly study. These may include, but are not limited to, philosophy, economics, political science, history, sociology, and geography. Undergraduates are encouraged to submit their term papers. Recent graduates may submit a paper so long as it was completed in their undergraduate studies and they have graduated in the last year.
Submissions may range from 2500 to 6000 words. Papers can be submitted in either official language. Submissions will be judged based upon their scholarly strength during a blind review process. Papers must be grammatically acceptable and adequately documented. Papers will be reviewed for consistency with the journal’s broad mandate. Authors should include a brief biographical note including their name, institutional affiliation, year of study, and program. Students should submit an electronic copy of their work only, in a Microsoft Word compatible format.
The Deadline for submissions is February 28th, 2006. All submissions after that will be considered for the next volumes.
Please forward submissions to Greg Pospodinis at firstname.lastname@example.org
