Call For Papers

The Jefferson Journal of Science and Culture is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed academic journal published by the Jefferson Scholars Foundation of the University of Virginia. We invite submissions for our fourth issue on the theme of ‘Collaboration’. We also accept general submissions on interdisciplinary topics on an ongoing basis.

Visit www.jeffersonjournal.org for details.

Collaborative work has resulted in some of the most famous and infamous advances of the last hundred years, from Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon, to the atom bomb, or the United Nations. This issue of the Jefferson Journal of Science and Culture seeks to investigate the nature of collaboration by examining its origins, practice, and iresults. How can collaborative work solve problems and further knowledge? What are the limits or failures of collaborative work? We welcome submissions from all academic fields, and invite authors to define, analyze and critique collaboration in innovative ways.

Natural Sciences submissions may explore the interplay between observation, experiment, and theory in projects requiring expert knowledge from several distinct fields. Authors may also examine how researchers interact with those developing new technologies or methodologies to collect data and to analyze and visualize results, or the importance, difficulties, and rewards of organizing large projects across several institutions.

Submissions from the Arts and Humanities may include examinations of the creative process and products of collaborating artists in areas such as music, television, film-making, theater or dance. Authors may also investigate the collaborative process of community art in projects led by an individual artist, such as Frank Warren’s Post-Secret or Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir.

Submissions from the Social Sciences may ask how and when researchers should collaborate, or whether we can collaborate with our research subjects. Authors may also investigate the social value and ethics of collaboration, as well as the collaborative nature of topics including education; trade; social groups; nations; or international organizations.

Additional topics may include, but are not limited to:
Market places as collaboration
Failures of collaboration
The creation of political policy as a collaborative process
Collaborations between scientists and artists
International treaties as collaborations
Teaching and learning as collaboration
Open source technologies as collaborations
Healthcare as a collaborative process
Athletic training as collaboration
Crowd-sourcing as collaboration

Please contact jeffersonjournaluva@gmail.com if you have a concept you’d like to discuss.
