The Journal Itinerari encourages proposals for special issues devoted to important and emerging topics in Ethics, Theoretical Philosophy and History of Philosophy.
What we look for in a guest editor : We are interested to hear proposals from potential editors at any stage of their career, but you should be able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the field in which you are proposing to publish. Experience as a peer reviewer and published author is required. We would expect proposals to come from a team of at least 2-3 guest editors.
Criteria: Articles must not have been published elsewhere previously. The Editor-in-Chief’s decision on what to publish is final. Itinerari’s editorial policies must be agreed to, including those around open peer review and open data. Guest editors may be authors of articles in the collection. No more than 20% of the articles may be authored by the guest editors (not including any introduction/editorial). These articles must still undergo peer review, which may be overseen by a Itinerari’s editor not involved with the collection. A collection should consist of at least twelve articles.
How to submit a proposal: You can submit an outline first (max 2 pages). This should include: Details of the guest editor(s): name, position, qualifications/experience in the area Why this collection is needed – how will it advance knowledge/thinking in the area? A list of potential articles and contributors/groups to approach.
Timelines: We anticipate a themed collection taking around 9-12 months to publish, depending on how close to completion articles are when an agreement is reached.
Proposals must be received at the journal address ( email@example.com) and marked for the attention of the Editor-in-Chief, by January 15, 2023.
Subject of the e-mail must be: Call for Guest Editors
