Seeking journal articles for special issue of Research, Policy and Practice – deadline 23 June

Writing journal papers is never easy (well to the majority of us!). Papers are perhaps more likely to get written in academic settings with pressure from line managers, career requirements and things like the Research Excellence Framework, but even then the need to move on to the next research study or manage multiple studies makes it difficult to focus on writing.

I imagine there are many other priorities within non-academic settings, research doesn’t necessarily lead to a journal article or publication of the research findings, and the support isn’t always then available to develop a journal paper. Perhaps a journal paper isn’t seen as essential, but it is useful in sharing messages from research to a wider audience and for individual development. It’s also useful in sharing high-quality research carried out as part of Masters or PhD studies.

So we’re asking you to tell us about your research and an article from it you would like to publish. We’re offering you the opportunity to receive support to develop your paper and publish it as part of a special open-access issue of @SSRGUK’s journal Research Policy and Planning in early 2015 (subject to independent peer-review of course!).

Complete our application form and send it back to us as soon as you can (by 5pm on Monday 23 June 2014 at the latest) and we’ll go from there!
