ANNOUNCEMENT – Publishing Schedule Update
The Goodis Center is preparing to relaunch publication of Journal for Human Advancement: Independent Projects for Progress and Human Rights in February 2016. Publishing has been on hiatus since February 2012, due to constraints on staff and budgeting.
Future updates on our publishing schedule will be posted under the Submission Guidelines.
Call for Papers and Art – #BlackLivesMatter
We are seeking submissions for the February/March 2016 issue, the first to publish after a long hiatus, on the following theme:
Submissions must be received by January 15, 2016, and may approach this topic from any perspective. Papers and artwork need not explicitly cite #BlackLivesMatter in the body of the submission. Our editors are looking for works addressing #BLM as a social movement, as it relates to the civil rights movement, as related to police reform and accountability, and in any other context.
By choosing this theme, the editors aim to engage in discussion about #BlackLivesMatter that will draw on the language of human rights, and will further address topics pursued by The Goodis Center such as poverty, police reform, and others listed on the Center’s website.
General Call for Submissions
We are always looking for content to share with our audience, both through the Journal for Human Advancement and through The Goodis Center's blog. Please review any prior issue of the Journal and consult our Submission Guidelines to see what and how we publish. Please also familiarize yourself with the mission and goals of The Goodis Center.
While we will occasionally announce a special call for papers or call for submissions with a particular theme and deadline, we welcome any submissions for review on a rolling basis.
Now that the Journal is resuming a regular publication cycle, contributors are encouraged to submit content anytime throughout the year for rolling review and possible inclusion in our August or February issues. Time-sensitive content (such as a commentary on current events) may be included in the Journal, or our editors may wish to discuss inclusion of the content on The Goodis Center's blog.
