An edited collection derived from a conference
Academic conferences typically bring together a mix of established scholars and emerging ones, and are often a great way to test ideas and to expose research to a wider audience. We are keen to encourage editors to pull together a selection of papers presented at conferences, worldwide, into an edited collection.
