New ECREA book series launched and new call for proposals
ECREA and Routledge are happy to announce that they have reached an agreement to launch a new book series, which will be titled the Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education.
|Carpentier, Nico 24.09.2012|
Books in the series Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education make a major contribution to the theory, research, practice and/or policy literature. They are European in scope and represent a diversity of perspectives.
ECREA, together with Routledge, will continue to produce high-quality edited volumes, and offer a structural publication opportunity for ECREA members, as (according to our publication guidelines) at least half of the authors and one of the editors needs to be an ECREA member.
The first set of four books are currently in negotiation. Below the call for new proposals for book series proposals can be found.
The launch of the new book series also implies that the previous book series, the ECREA Book Series with Intellect, will be phased out, after the last two books have been published. The ECREA bureau is grateful to Intellect for the long and fruitful collaboration.
CALL for EDITED BOOK PROPOSALS for the Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education Series
The Series Editors of the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA) invite the submission of book proposals for the Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education Series.
WHO is invited to submit?
The Book Series only allows for edited volumes to be included. Proposals for monographs will not be accepted.
The edited volumes of the Book Series aim at providing a diverse overview of the work of the ECREA membership. At the same time, a degree of openness towards non-ECREA members is also considered to add value to the Book Series. For this reason, at least 50% of the chapters need to originate from ECREA members (individual members, or members through an institutional membership). For the same reason, at least one of the editors needs to be an ECREA member.
WHAT are we seeking?
ECREA Book Series Publications need to have a very clear theme on which they focus and which needs to be related to the focal points of ECREA (as described in article 3 of the ECREA statutes - see the ECREA website http://www.ecrea.eu/about/statutes). Although the series is open to the wide diversity of disciplines and subjects present among ECREA members, editorial choices will also take into account the potential audience of a proposed book.
What is the deadline for submissions?
Proposals need to be sent to the series editors (by email) before 15 January, 2013.
WHO subsidises the publication?
Each year, ECREA subsidises the distribution of one publication to the membership (2nd year individual members and the coordinators of the institutional and associated institutional members). The ECREA Book Series editors will be in charge of selecting this publication. Their selection will be confirmed by a decision of the ECREA Executive Board.
Other publications may also be included in the ECREA Book Series. In this case, ECREA will not subsidize the distribution of the book to the membership. The inclusion of the book in the ECREA Book Series will still be dependant upon the decision of the ECREA Book Series editors and the Executive Board.
HOW should one submit a proposal or manuscript?
A form to submit a book proposal is available at the ‘Members only’ segment of the ECREA website, more specifically in the Document Archive, in the folder “book series”. Only this form can be used for submitting a book proposal; applications that do not use this form will be a priori excluded.
The proposal should include a detailed abstract of each chapter.
TO WHOM should it be sent?
Book proposals and manuscripts can be sent by e-mail (attachment in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf format) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
