The International Journal of Motorcycle Studies (IJMS) is dedicated to the study and discussion of motorcycling culture in all its forms and from all over the world—including moped/scooter, street and racetrack, and off-road/dirt bikes as well as every aspect of motorcycle culture past, present and future.
The journal is inviting submissions for a special issue on rights and regulation to be published in November 2006.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
riders’ issues and their solutions
motorcycle rights organizations or the future of motorcycling
transportation laws and regulations
riders’ training courses and motorcycle awareness programs
IJMS seeks to maintain a high standard of quality as well as readability. Given the inherently interdisciplinary nature of the journal, you should present your thoughts in a way that is open to readers not involved in your field. Essays, then, should be written in clear English in a style accessible to the broadest possible audience and should be no more than 5000 words.
Submission Procedure: You must query first. Before submitting an article for IJMS, please email the issue editor, Gary Kieffner, a 150-word abstract of the piece in the body of your email. Include a three- to four-sentence biography in the same email including, if appropriate, relevant publications and professional or other activities. Email: Kieffner@utep.edu.
The manuscript referred to in the query must not be previously published, nor should it be submitted for publication elsewhere while under review by the journal’s editorial board or outside readers. All essays will be subject to blind peer review.
For full details, consult the "Submission Guidelines":
The deadline for essays will be September 1, 2006.
Please send general queries or questions the Managing Editors, Suzanne Ferriss and Randy McBee, at ijms.nova.edu
