[Call for Papers - Changing Employment Research Paper Series]
Aims and Objectives of the Research Paper Series
The Changing Employment Research Paper Series aims to encourage debate and disseminate the activities of the Changing Employment international comparative European FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and Experienced Researchers (ERs). The ITN is amongst a small number of multi-disciplinary social science programmes to be awarded funding in the current Marie Curie awards under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP7). The central remit of the Research Paper Series is to explore and encourage debate on the changing nature of employment in Europe in the context of challenges, threats and opportunities for employees and employers.
How to submit a paper
The Changing Employment Research Paper Series is open to contributions from members of the Marie Curie Changing Employment network. We also welcome contributions from any other interested external party whose work falls within the remit of the network. Where possible we would encourage contributors to submit papers to particular themes within the Changing Employment Network notably; management and employees; inclusion and exclusion; employee wellbeing and work Life quality. However papers whose remit might extend beyond the confines of these particular themes are also welcome.
All papers will be reviewed prior to publication in order to maintain quality. The author(s) retain the copyright of the work published, and the paper can be subsequently submitted to academic journals and other outlets. A Changing Employment Research Paper does not preclude revision for submission to another forum.
Anyone interested in submitting a paper may either send a proposal (up to 500 words) or submit a full paper (up to 8,000 words) to the Series Administrator.
The Changing Employment Research Papers Series will be disseminated to all members of the Changing Employment Network and mailing list contacts, and will be freely available electronically (in PDF Format) from Changing Employment website. A number of papers will also be available in print format.
