Consider joining the Workplace Collective

by E Wayne Ross on July 21, 2009

As I’m sure many readers of the Workplace Blog know, Workplace: A Journal for Academic Labor has new home, new outlook, new publishing system. Co-editors Stephen Petrina, Steven Wexler, and I encourage you to read or browse the new Workplace journal.

The co-editors also express our deep appreciation to all past members of the Workplace Collective and in particular the founding and previous editors and special section editors of Workplace. Your contributions to the journal have made it an important and dynamic site for the analysis of higher education.

We are in the process of reconstituting the Workplace Collective and invite interested persons to consider making a commitment to the work of the journal. In particular, we request that members of the new Workplace Collective make a commitment that goes beyond reviewing manuscript submissions and includes submitting articles, reviews, and other forms of scholarship to Workplace for consideration.

We also encourage you to consider making an even deeper commitment to the journal by proposing to guest edit a special section of Workplace. (You can find the guidelines for special section proposals and two current CFPs here.

If you are interested in renewing your commitment to the journal as a member of the Workplace Collective or have questions about the direction the journal is going please email E. Wayne Ross.

In addition, we request that everyone go the Workplace website and become a “Registered user”.

On the new site you will find a number of new articles and reviews, which have been published in advance of the official launch of Issue No. 16. You will also find several archived issues of the journal on the new site. Please note that we are in the process of migrating all back issues of Workplace to the OJS platform.

We are looking forward to continuing our collective work and taking Workplace to the next level as the site for committed activist scholars in higher education.
