Subject: Call for Special Issue Proposals: I-LanD Journal

I-LanD Journal – Identity, Language and Diversity
International Peer-Reviewed E-Journal

Open Call for Special Issue Proposals 
I-LanD Journal – Identity, Language and Diversity n. 1 - 2019 

The I-LanD Journal
ersity/) reflects a commitment to publishing original and high-quality
research papers addressing issues of identity, language and diversity in
different discourses from new critical and theoretical perspectives. All
submissions are double blind peer-reviewed. In fulfillment of its mission, the
I-LanD Journal provides an outlet for publication to international
practitioners, with a view to disseminating and enhancing scholarly studies on
the relation between language and ethnic/cultural identity, language and
sexual identity/gender, as well as on forms of language variation derived from
instances of contamination/hybridization of different genres, discursive
practices and text types. 

Through this Call for Special Issue the editorial team of the I-LanD Journal
intends to solicit high-quality proposals that will be evaluated in a
competitive procedure.

Proposals for a Special Issue should have a unifying theme and reflect, at an
international level, the work in a particular research area in which future
investigation may be boosted by the publication of a set of excellent papers.
Proposals for a Special Issue should be sent to the two Editors-in-Chief of
the Journal (ilandjournal at unior.it) by July 30, 2018 and contain:

- The name and e-mail address for communication of prospective Guest Editors
(at least two); to improve the Journal’s geographical variety and
internationalization, at least one of the Guest Editors’ countries of
affiliation should be different from the others
- A working title
- A 500 word rationale clearly explaining the scope and significance of the
proposed theme
- The name of ten possible reviewers of the single papers who are not involved
in any way in the preparation of the Special Issue

The special issue is planned for June 2019, so the publication calendar for
Guest Editors is the following: 

- Publication of the call for papers by guest editors: by September 10, 2018
- Submission of abstracts to guest editors: by October 19, 2018 
- Submission of chapters to guest editors: by March 11, 2019
- Submission of proofs to contributors: by mid-April 2019 
- Submission of final manuscript: by mid-May 2019

The length of individual papers is usually about 7-8,000 words, excluding
references. The number of papers in a Special Issue is usually between 6 and
8, but could include more if justified.

The selection of the best proposal is the outcome of a collaborative
evaluation by all members of the editorial team according to the following

- Suitability of the topic for the I-LanD Journal
- Overall quality of the proposal: originality and contribution to the field
- Theoretical background of the rationale and individual papers
- Methodological adequacy of the individual papers
- Completeness of the proposal
- Feasibility of the plan for delivery

The Editors-in-Chief of the I-LanD Journal, together with a number of Advisory
Board members selected according to the proposed topics, will examine all
proposals and their decision will be communicated to the Guest Editors by
August 16, 2018. Once a high-quality proposal has been selected from among
those submitted, it will be the responsibility of the Guest Editors to proceed
within the agreed time limit. 

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals,
