A Call For Articles: Early Career Scholars Edition 2018
The Early Career Committee (ECC) is continuously working on improving and expanding the scope of the ISPP Blog to better highlight the contributions of scholars working within the field of political psychology.
One of our current goals is to promote the visibility of early career scholars through our various online outlets; be it our blog or social media accounts (links to each can be found here: Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn). We recognize that the modern pressures and demands of academia pose unique challenges; especially for those just beginning their academic careers. We hope, therefore, that the ISPP Blog can provide scholars with a platform to promote and encourage the next generation of academics to pursue careers in, or related to, political psychology.
Requirements – What We Are Looking For
We are open to a wide range of topics related to political psychology. Articles can be written by a single author or as a collaboration amongst peers. We especially encourage individual and group submissions from diverse academic backgrounds.
For this edition of the Blog the ECC is seeking submissions with the following requirements:
- An article up to 1,000 words about your current research on some topic related to the aims of the ISPP (e.g., political ideology, political behaviour, human values, social justice, cultural norms, personality dynamics, social identification, intergroup relations, political leadership, collective action, protest, societal transformation, etc.).
- The article should include a section about the practical implications of your work.
- A brief description (up to 50 words, positioned at the end of your article), which includes the name, location, affiliation, and current position of the author(s).
- A list of references, including DOIs.
The ECC will review all submitted articles before publication. Authors will be notified via email whether their work has been accepted, rejected, or if minor/major revisions are required.
Getting your work published on the ISPP website is an excellent way to disseminate your research, increase your visibility, and invite future collaboration. Writing for the Blog is a great opportunity whether you are a PhD student, Postdoc, or early career researcher. Your work will be permanently stored on the ISPP website; enabling you to reference others to your writing. Finally, in addition to having your work reviewed and published online, your research will also be promoted through the ISPP’s various social media accounts and other forms of online communication.
To Submit Your Article
With respect to deadlines, an "expression of interest" must be made before December 1st, 2017. Expressions of interest should include a brief summary (2 to 5 sentences) of your proposed article. To submit expressions of interest, or any questions, comments or concerns, please contact the ISPP Early Career Web Resources Coordinators: Lucas Czarnecki (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Sumedh Rao (email@example.com).
Once the ECC has received all expressions of interest we will set up a series of deadlines throughout the year to ensure timely review and publication of your article. Depending on the number of submissions the ECC receives, we may have to enforce certain deadlines. Most likely, contributors will have a wide range of dates from which to select; ranging from January until May 2018.
