* The Encyclopedia of Transnational Crime and Justice seeks contributors
CALL FOR AUTHORS: Encyclopedia of Transnational Crime and Justice
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to a new 1-volume reference work on the causes, consequences, and other facets of transnational crime and justice.
Transnational crimes are not only crimes that happen to cross nations’ borders but that involve border crossings as an integral part of the criminal activity. Transnational crimes also include crimes that take place in one country with consequences that significantly affect other countries. Examples of transnational crimes include human trafficking, smuggling (arms, drugs, currency, etc.), sex slavery, non-domestic terrorism, and financial crimes. It is this proposed encyclopedia’s emphasis on transnational justice, as well, that differentiates it from the current reference literature. Not only do we define, describe, and chart the crimes and criminal activity, we also include significant coverage of policing those crimes and prosecuting them within domestic and international court systems. The work contains approximately 150 signed entries with Cross-References (“see-also”) and suggestions for Further Readings.
We are now making assignments for new authors due February 25, 2011.
This comprehensive project will be published by SAGE Reference and will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and digital product available to students via the library’s online services. The General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr. Margaret Beare at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School.
If you are interested in contributing to this outstanding reference, it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature. 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 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 Encyclopedia of Transnational Crime and Justice, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a brief summary of your academic/publishing credentials in related issues.
Thanks very much.
