CALL FOR AUTHORS: SAGE Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World-New Expanded Online Volume We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World, a new online library reference that will look at women today around the world and delve into the contexts of being female in the 21st century. Thus the scope of the encyclopedia will focus on women’s status starting in approximately 2000 and look forward. The new work will supplement the 4-volume print and online edition of the encyclopedia already in production. The 500 signed entries (with cross-references and recommended readings) will cover issues in contemporary women’s and gender studies and the articles will include information relevant to the following academic disciplinary contexts: women in different cultures/countries; arts and media; business and economics; criminal justice; education; family studies; health; media; military; politics; science and technology; sports; environmental studies; and religion. The article submission due date is April 30, 2012. This comprehensive project is being published in stages by SAGE Reference and will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a digital product available to students via the library’s electronic services. The General Editors, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, are Dr. Mary Zeiss Stange of Skidmore College, and Dr. Carol K. Oyster of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature, redefining women’s issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product or access to the online product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more. The list of available articles is already prepared, and as a next step we will e-mail you the Article List (Excel file) from which you can select topics that best fit your expertise and interests. Additionally, Style and Submission Guidelines will be provided that detail article specifications. If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World, please contact me by the e-mail information below.
