Contributions are solicited for a special issue that recognizes that in the United States we have a new administration at the national level. We seek to look forward with an issue that presents what leading and emerging scholars see as promising avenues to explore in relationship to policy practice and research in this new era. We seek to accept forward-looking thought pieces that look at the possibilities of where we go from here.
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2021
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
