Call for Submissions: EATAW 2021 JoAW Special Conference Issue

The 11th EATAW conference offers presenters the following publication opportunity: a conference issue of the Journal of Academic Writing (JoAW).

Selected papers from the EATAW 2021 conference will be published in a special issue of JoAW, EATAW’s international, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the teaching, tutoring, researching, administration and development of Academic Writing in higher education in Europe. JoAW is relevant to teachers, scholars, and programme managers across disciplines and across the world who are interested in conducting, debating and learning from research into best practices in the teaching of writing. This issue will be guest edited by Alena Kasparkova (VSB – Technical University of Ostrava) and Kamila Etchegoyen Rosolova (Czech Language Institute, Czech Academy of Sciences), with support from Magnus Gustafsson (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden), Lisa Ganobcsik-Williams and Niall Curry (Coventry University, England). 

EATAW 2021 presenters may submit the following formats for consideration: 
  1. Scholarly papers: Submissions should be in the form of a 5,000-word journal article (word count excludes references and graphics) and should reflect the themes and content covered in your conference presentation. Papers based on conference presentations or symposia can be theoretical, empirical, or experience-based, but must offer an explicit original contribution, refer to existing debates or issues, and demonstrate an appropriate methodology or approach. 
  2. Shorter pieces appropriate for the following journal sections are also welcome: 
  • Teaching practice: The 10-minute presentations on teaching-related designs, development or experience from EATAW2021 can be written up in order to share them with JoAW readers. If you are interested in sharing your teaching practice, please submit: an abstract (maximum 200 words) and a manuscript (maximum 3000 words).  
  • Themed discussion: JoAW publishes themed discussions as part of their conference special issue. If you are interested in submitting a themed discussion, please submit an abstract (maximum 200 words) and a manuscript (maximum 3000 words).
