Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Society, a two-volume encyclopedia for college, public, and science libraries
Call For Authors: Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Society
Posted on March 16th, 2009
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Society, a new reference for undergraduate students and the general public addressing all aspects of nanoscience research, including definitions of terms, biographies of major researchers and their work, profiles of research institutions, organizations, and corporations, descriptions of nano techniques and potential, and thematic topics on ethics, religion and government regulation. We are starting the assignment process for articles that will be due June 1, 2009.
This comprehensive project is a two-volume encyclopedia for college, public, and science libraries to be published by Sage Reference in 2010. The work is made up of some 450 articles.
Each article, ranging from 900 to 3500 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor for the encyclopedia is David Guston, Ph.D., Arizona State University, who will review all the articles for academic consistency.
If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, 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 encyclopedia (approximately a $300 value) 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 Nanoscience and Society, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a brief summary of your academic/publishing credentials. Please remember this is a non-technical resource that can be understood by the layman.
Thank you very much.
