International Peer-Reviewed E-Journal


Open Call for Special Issue Proposals 

I-LanD Journal – Identity, Language and Diversity n.1/2021


The I-LanD Journal
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
<mailto:ilandjournal at unior.it> ) by July 18, 2020 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 15 possible reviewers of the individual papers who will not be
directly or indirectly involved in the preparation of the Special Issue.


The Special Issue is planned for June 2021, so the publication calendar for
Guest Editors is the following:

- Publication of the call for papers by guest editors: by September 10, 2020

- Submission of abstracts to guest editors: by October 20, 2020

- Submission of chapters to guest editors: by March 21, 2021

- Submission of proofs to contributors: by April 18, 2021

- Submission of final manuscript: by the end of May 2021


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
10, but could include more if justified.


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

- suitability of the topic for the I-LanD Journal;

- overall quality of the proposal: originality and contribution to the

- 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 for a Special Issue and their decision will be
communicated to one of the two aspiring Guest Editors by July 30, 2020. 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
timeline and comply with the I-LanD Journal's editorial policy and ethical
ement.pdf> ).
