Cambridge Scholars Publishing–Call for book proposals

Cambridge Scholars Publishing are inviting proposals for academic books and edited collections in Humanities and Social Sciences. We publish in all major fields of academic research and practice, including Humanities and Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, and Health Sciences. To submit a book proposal, please visit our website, where you can complete a Book Proposal Form and read our publishing guidelines .

Since our foundation in Cambridge, UK, more than 20 years ago, Cambridge Scholars Publishing have grown to be one of the world’s leading scholarly book publishers, with more than 700 academic books due to be published this year and a backlist of more than 8000 titles. Please note that we are fully independent, and are not affiliated to, or associated with, the University of Cambridge or Cambridge University Press in any way.

We always aim to put our authors first in everything we do, and we bring that ambition into our publishing operations with our Author Promises. There are no charges for publication, and we offer an escalating royalty payment—the more titles sold, the higher the royalty rate, from the first copy sold. We sell to more than 100 countries and to the world’s leading research and study centres, via our international distributors including Amazon, EBSCO/GOBI, ProQuest and Ingram.

We promise fast, fair, and friendly proposal review—normally a decision is made within one month. If we do offer publication, your book will appear in handsome hardback, as well as eBook formats, for our academic library customers. We also invite authors to apply to contribute to our unique Book in Focus series.

An article which features Cambridge Scholars and some of its authors has been published in the online publishing magazine No Shelf Required. If you would like to know more about our approach, and hear the experiences of some of our authors, you can read it here.

We hope you will consider proposing a scholarly book for publication with us, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

CFP: Economic Anthropology

CALL FOR PAPERS 

Volume 11, Number 1 

The journal Economic Anthropology (Wiley Blackwell) is calling for open submissions for Volume 11, Number 1, which is to be published in January 2024. EA is a bi-annual refereed journal published by the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) to make available research that is innovative, interdisciplinary, and focused on economic and social life to serve scholars, practitioners, and general audiences. The journal continues to record high rates of readership among the American Anthropological Association journals. To further the goal of making the most current research available to a broad audience, EA emphasizes clear and accessible writing. We encourage authors to take advantage of the journal’s online format and incorporate photos, graphics, and links to videos or other related materials. The journal considers the work of scholars and practitioners from throughout the world and at all points in their careers, including advanced PhD students. 

Timeliness is an important consideration in the EA publication process. It is our goal to bring each issue to final publication within approximately one year from the date of submission. This ambitious deadline represents a big commitment to getting new work out quickly and serves everyone’s interests, including junior scholars who are especially pressed to publish in quality journals without long lead times. 

EA promotes inclusivity, diversity, antiracism, and anti-colonialism. We therefore encourage our potential contributors to cite relevant publications of members of historically marginalized groups and scholars from countries where the research was carried out.   

The open submission issue features articles spanning a wide array of topics and disciplines including: 

  • Sociocultural Anthropology 
  • Archaeology 
  • Sociology 
  • Linguistics 
  • Demography 
  • Economics 
  • Ecology 
  • Geography

  • Gender at Work 
  • The Household 
  • Property 
  • Social Economies of Greed and Excess 
  • Political Economy of Cities

CFP: Reseach in Social Movements, Conflicts, and Change, Volume 48 and future

Call for Papers

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change (RSMCC) invites original submissions of article-length manuscripts concerning any topic related to the three areas of the peer-reviewed series: social movements, conflicts/peace processes, and social change. This is an ongoing, open call for submissions to the RSMCC series. However, to be considered for inclusion in Volume 48, manuscripts must arrive by December 15, 2022.

RSMCC encourages chapter submissions using original research that expand the current scholarship on social movements, peace, and conflict processes broadly construed. Submissions to RSMCC should generate new knowledge about central aspects of human life: why and how people organize for political and social change; the reasons for and consequences of social conflicts; and the various aspects of peacebuilding. In addition to advancing disciplinary scholarship on these topics, the series has provided an important home for interdisciplinary and international scholarship at the forefront of research and theory development related to societies’ struggles over resources, power, and agency. Social movement scholars have used the RSMCC series to connect their research with theories of peacebuilding and nonviolence while other scholars have used the series to explore new frontiers in peace and conflict studies, including cutting-edge work on civil resistance, or violence by state and non-state actors.

RSMCC is a peer-reviewed series of original research that has been published annually for over 45 years. We continue to publish the work of many of the leading scholars along with upcoming quantitative and qualitative researchers. RSMCC enjoys a wide library subscription base for the book versions. Additionally, volumes are available online through Emerald Insight via subscribing libraries or individual subscriptions. This ensures wider distribution and easier access to your scholarship while maintaining the book series at the same time. This title is indexed in Scopus and volumes from this series are included in the Thomson Reuters Book Citation Index.

Submissions

Submissions that arrive by December 15, 2022 will be considered for Volume 48, which after this date manuscripts will be considered for the next volume in progress (RSMCC publishes 1-2 volumes per year). After the editor assesses the suitability of your manuscript for publishing in RSMCC, it will go through double-blind peer review. Initial decisions are generally made within 10-12 weeks. Send submission as a WORD document attached to an email to Lisa Leitz, RSMCC Series Editor, at rsmcc@chapman.edu. For initial submissions, any standard social science in-text citation and bibliographic system is acceptable. Remove all self-references in the text and in the bibliography. Word counts should generally not exceed 12,000 words, inclusive of supplemental materials (abstract, tables, bibliography, notes, etc.). Include the paper’s title and an unstructured abstract on the first page of the text itself. Send a second file that contains the article title, the unstructured abstract, and full contact information for all authors.
