CFP Journal of Research Practice: Special issue on research assistantships.

by E Wayne Ross on May 14, 2012

Proposals are now being accepted for a special issue about research assistantships for the international, transdisciplinary Journal of Research Practice (JRP).

Graduate students, academics, professionals, community members, and other research partners are invited to share their experiences, insights, and concerns around research assistantships. This special issue is intended to showcase the multilayered complexities of research assistantships from different perspectives and across different disciplines. We encourage themes related to research learning, mentoring, working dynamics, power issues, researcher identity, communication between research assistants and researchers (and other team members), as well as the varied legal, ethical, and moral issues associated with the employment and education of research assistants.

Proposals of about 500 words will be accepted until July 15, 2012. Authors of selected proposals will be requested to develop their proposals into manuscripts by February 1, 2013, to be considered for the special issue.

For more information, please consult

We look forward to your engagement.
