CFP – Special Issue of Canadian Journal of Children’s Rights: Children’s Rights and Environments

Canadian Journal of Children’s Rights 2018: Children’s Rights and Environments
Call for Manuscripts
Deadline for Submission: April 1, 2018

The Editors welcome manuscripts in English and French from academics, researchers, community partners and young people that address the broad theme of Children’s Rights and Environments. The issue approaches the theme of environments broadly to include manuscripts addressing issues ranging from climate change and children’s rights to children’s right to play in public outdoor spaces. The Editors encourage a variety of contributions including scholarly essays, original research articles, comparative analyses, critical reviews, advocacy and policy articles as well as personal narratives, interviews, oral histories and poetry to each of the sections of the Journal: academic, open, student, and youth submissions. New this year is a section devoted to supporting graduate student scholarship. Each manuscript submission will undergo a masked peer review process: double masked review of scholarly articles and single masked review for submissions to the open section. The editors will review youth submissions to verify their appropriateness to CJCR‘s focus and scope.

Submissions to the Canadian Journal of Children’s Rights will make a contribution to exploring the theme of children’s rights and environments from a variety of disciplinary locations and approaches.

The deadline for submission of manuscripts (up to 8,000 words plus references for scholarly articles) for the 2018 Issue is April 1, 2018.
