CALL FOR PRIZE PAPERS in Economic, Social, and Business History
Deadline: 25 May 2012
The Scandinavian Economic History Review is celebrating its 60-year anniversary this year in May. In order to mark the event the journal offers a prize of 500 EUR to each of the papers selected for the special anniversary issue published later this year.
The journal editors thus invite you to submit a paper for the anniversary issue. The deadline for submissions is 25 May 2012. The papers will be made subject to a fast refereeing process, with final decisions made before 15 July 2012.
The Scandinavian Economic History Review has been published since 1952 by the Scandinavian Society of Economic and Social History. The journal publishes articles and reviews in the fields of economic, business and social history with a specific, but not exclusive interest in Scandinavia. The journal also publishes contributions from closely related fields and articles dealing with theoretical and methodological issues.
We encourage papers on any topic related to economic history, social history or business history from any geographic region of the world.
We are looking for high-quality articles up to around 12,000 words long (graphs and tables count for 800 words per page). Because of the fast refereeing process we expect the articles to be finalized and prepared according to the journal’s house style (Instructions for submission). If your article has previously been sent to a journal and declined we welcome you to send the referee reports along with your submission.
On submission please mention ‘anniversary issue’ in the cover letter. To go to the submission website please click manuscriptcentral.
