CFP: Encyclopedia of Global Business

CFP: Encyclopedia of Global Business

We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of Global Business, a new 4-volume reference to be published in 2008 by Sage Publications.

This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and academic libraries and includes some 1,200 articles, covering all aspects of the world of business and related disciplines in the social sciences, including terms and practices, profiles of countries and companies, and international business organizations. We are now making assignments with a deadline of May 15, 2008.

Each article, ranging from 500 to 5,000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor for the encyclopedia is Jan Katz, Ph.D., Cornell University, who will review all the articles for editorial content and 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. Payment for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book credit at Sage Publications for article submissions totaling 500 to 1,000 words up to a free set of the finished encyclopedia (a $600 value) for contributions totaling 10,000 words. More than this, your involvement can help assure that credible and detailed data, descriptions, and analysis are available to students of business issues.

The list of available articles (Excel file) and Style Guidelines are prepared and will be sent to you in response to your inquiry. Please then select which unassigned articles may best suit your interests and expertise.

If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Encyclopedia of Global Business, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a very brief summary of your background in business and international issues. Thanks for your time and interest.
