Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their chapter proposals by June 30, 2016. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August 15, 2016.
There will be a two-stage review process. In the first stage, authors are invited to submit an abstract of 500 words. The editors will review the abstract to evaluate if the proposed book chapter fits the theme of the book.
In the second stage, the authors will be invited to submit a full version of their proposed book chapter. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Based on the outcome of the review process, the authors may be requested to revise their book chapters and to submit the final version. If the editors are satisfied with the revision of the book chapter, the authors will be invited to submit a camera-ready version of the paper.
There is no template for the proposals. However, they should clearly describe the topic of the chapter, and list the tentative sections alongside a rough estimate of their lengths. Proposals should also include author names, affiliations, emails, and short bios.
