Contributions to the Research Agenda Section (edited by Michael Blauberger)
Contributions to the Research Agenda Section are expected a) to review the state of the art in a particular field of interest and, against this background, b) to develop an innovative research agenda. Contributions will typically be broader in scope and more open-ended than individual research articles. Research Agenda articles can set out from a review of recent trends in an established field of research or bring together different literatures around one common topic or concept. Previous contributions to this section have been very well cited and have also been used for teaching purposes, i.e. as research-oriented updates to conventional textbook chapters. Research Agenda articles are subject to JEPP’s normal double-blind peer review process and should not exceed 5,000 words. The Research Agenda Section editor welcomes contributions or suggestions for contributions at any time (Michael.Blauberger@sbg.ac.at).
Contributions to the Debate Section (edited by Michael Blauberger)
JEPP features a new format, a Debate Section, which will be published approximately once per year as an additional option to full-length special issues. The debate section shall comprise two or three brief articles, which take contrary or complementary standpoints on a common issue. The short debate format is meant to particularly encourage submissions on topical and controversial issues. At the same time, contributions are expected to be based on rigorous social science research, thus applying theoretical knowledge to a recent phenomenon and/or providing fresh empirical support for their claims. Individual Debate Section articles are subject to JEPP’s normal double-blind peer review process and should not exceed 5,000 words. The Debate Section editor welcomes contributions or suggestions for contributions at any time (Michael.Blauberger@sbg.ac.at).
