CFP: Current Trends in Graduate Historical Research Book Series(2016-01-16)

Attention Professors, Doctoral Candidates, and Graduate Students:

We are pleased to announce that Eastern Illinois University has partnered with Common Ground Publishing to publish the first in a yearly series of peer reviewed edited collections consisting of original historical research by graduate students. Applicants will be expected to participate in the peer review and will gain experience in the publishing process while competing for publication in a professional edited collection. We seek papers in all periods and fields of history and are particularly interested in original and innovative primary research projects that make demonstrated contributions to the relevant historiography.

Students in masters and doctoral programs are invited to submit proposals from between 5,000 to 10,000 words on any historical topic. Suggested proposals include prior class research papers, independent study papers, and thesis chapters. Please, no historiography essays or book reviews.

Individual proposals should include a 250 word abstract and a CV. Please submit proposals to GraduateHistory@commongroundpublishing.com no later than February 15, 2016.

Please address any inquiries to GraduateHistory@commongroundpublishing.com. Authors will be notified on decisions for the next stage of peer review by March 16, 2016. Accepted authors can expect to revise their submissions based on the peer review from April to August 2016. Publication is expected in December 2016.
