The Food System Research Collaborative is pleased to announce a call for articles related to food systems for Volume 2 of its working paper series. The articles can focus on completed research, research in progress, or current issues and must have implications for Vermont. This call is open to UVM faculty and staff and the research/writing team must include a community partner.
The working papers are meant to be a stepping stone to peer-reviewed publication. Each author is required to submit their paper to an appropriate journal. Authors will receive stipends of $1,000 upon submission of their final revised paper to the collaborative and to a peer-reviewed journal.
Abstracts will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, to email@example.com. If selected, authors will provide a full version of the papers with references and appropriate graphics by Jan. 15, 2011. Final revisions for the Working Paper are due April 1 and journal submissions must be made by June 15.
