NORRAG Special issues (NSI) are an open-source periodical that seeks to give prominence to authors from different countries and with diverse perspectives. Each issue is dedicated to a special topic of education research, policy and practice; education is defined broadly. NSIs include a number of concise articles from diverse perspectives and actors with the aim to bridge the gap between theory and practice as well as advocacy and policy in international education development.
NORRAG is currently seeking proposals to serve as Guest Editor of a NORRAG Special issue on ‘Education in Times of Climate Change’ to be published by December 2021. The Guest Editor(s) mobilises approximately 25 to 30 authors to contribute relevant and high-quality articles each of about 1500-2000 words; conducts quality control/editorial duties in cooperation with NORRAG; writes the editorial; and leads an online launch event. NORRAG provides an honorarium of 7,000 Swiss francs, extensive communications and event support and confirms quality control and content review.
Previous proposals and calls for papers should be used as a model for proposals: NSI06, NSI05, NSI04, NIS03, NSI02. While it would be useful to include an indication of relevant authors that will be invited to contribute, the Guest Editor also considers all submissions to an open call for papers on the theme. NSI is produced by NORRAG and is supported by the Open Society Foundations (OSF) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Previous NORRRAG Special Issues may be viewed here.
Applications are to be sent to email@example.com by 14 February, 2021.
