The deadline for submission of book proposals for Wave 15 of the Routledge Studies in European Communication Research and Education Series has been extended to 2 March 2018.
The Book Series aims to provide a diverse overview of the work of ECREA working groups and individual members, showcasing diversity of topics and areas within the field of contemporary media and communication research and addressing this diversity from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives.
The Book Series has two main objectives, the first one is the promotion of European media and communication research. We are, therefore, seeking proposals, which have a strong European dimension either by virtue of inclusion of regionally and ethnically diverse voices and cases, or by virtue of comparative research. Proposals can include a limited number of authors who are not ECREA members provid insights beyond European perspective (see details below). The Book Series' second aim is to promote collaborative research, especially between our members. Proposals resulting from collaboration between ECREA Sections, Networks and Temporary working groups are particularly encouraged.
WHO is invited to submit?
The edited volumes of the Book Series aim at providing a diverse overview of the work of the ECREA members. At the same time, a degree of openness towards non-ECREA members is also considered to add value to the Book Series. Please note, that 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. Monographs or contributions from a limited number of authors or authors based at the same institution will not be considered. ECREA Executive Board members cannot be editors of the books in ECREA book series, but can serve as authors of the chapters, while the Book Series editors cannot contribute to the content of the books in the ECREA book series in any way.
WHAT are we seeking?
We are seeking original, previously unpublished work. Inclusion of previously published work is accepted under condition that the work has previously not been published in English or was published in now mainly inaccessible outlets. In such cases, editors of accepted proposals will be required to acquire permissions to translate or republish the work (without any extra costs to the Book Series).
ECREA Book Series Publications need to have a clear theme or focus. Authors are strongly advised to outline the focus of the book and its framework in the abstract of the introductory chapter (see our submission form). The structure of the book (division of sections and chapters) should be in line with the proposed framework. Although the series is open to a wide diversity of disciplines and subjects, editors will consider the potential audience of a proposed book and previous publications on the topic within the Book Series.
