Second call for Proposals: English Language and Linguistics - Special Issue

The journal English Language and Linguistics (ELL) publishes one special issue
each year, and we would now like to invite proposals for the special issue to
be published in 2018.

Special issues should be focused on a specific topic which is of key interest
to specialists in the various sub-disciplines of English linguistics. The
topics and contents of past special issues can be consulted by viewing back
issues on the ELL website: http://journals.cambridge.org/ELL

As a rough guideline, a special issue should be a collection of 5-10 targeted
(often commissioned) articles, including a lead article or ''perspectivizing''
introduction by the editor(s), with a maximum length of 100,000 words for the
volume. However, no strict format is prescribed and editors are welcome to
propose novel formats (for example, articles may be followed by responses from
others), although all articles submitted for a special issue will be subjected
to the same rigorous quality and reviewing standards as regular submissions to
English Language and Linguistics. The issue's editor(s) will collaborate
closely with one of the regular editors of the journal during the reviewing
stage and when deciding upon the ultimate selection of papers to be published.
The deadline for the first drafts of articles is expected to be around 1 July
2017, and the final revised versions of all articles in the special issue must
be submitted by 1 March 2018 at the latest (to be ready for publication in an
issue before the end of 2018).

Proposals for a possible special issue should be no longer than 4 pages,

- Information on the relevance of the topic and on what makes it attractive to
the international English Linguistics community
- The special expertise of the editor(s)
- A preliminary list of contributors
- Potentially, short abstracts of the papers

Please send proposals by 1 October 2016 to the following email address:
ellsubmissions at cambridge.org.

This will distribute the proposal to all three editors of ELL. Feel free to
contact any or all of us in advance of this deadline if you have any queries
about any of this this. We would encourage those thinking of submitting a
proposal to contact us to discuss it.
