Call for Proposals - NSSE Yearbooks to Join TCR
by Gary Natriello - October 20, 2008
The editors of TCR announce a call for proposals for future volumes of the NSSE Yearbooks.
We are pleased to announce that the NSSE Yearbooks will be joining the Teachers College Record for 2009 and beyond. As many readers of TCR will know, the NSSE Yearbooks are the distinguished series published since 1900 by the National Society for the Study of Education. Two yearbooks covering major topics in educational research and practice are issued each year.
TCR and the NSSE Yearbooks both began publishing at the beginning of the last century, but there is much more in common than the calendar. Indeed, over the years there has been a good deal of overlap among both authors and editors of the Record and the Yearbooks, and both series have taken a broad view of education and a wide perspective on scholarship and practice in the field.
With the recent decision to dissolve the National Society, the NSSE Board has arranged for the editors of TCR to assume responsibility for publication of the yearbooks beginning in 2009. We are delighted to welcome the editors, authors, and readers of the NSSE Yearbooks to TCR, and we look forward to many more years of field defining efforts with these distinguished publications.
The NSSE Yearbooks will continue to be published without interruption. For 2009 editors Robert Crowson and Ellen Goldring are assembling a yearbook on Education and Localism, and editors Tom Popkewitz and Fazal Rizvi are organizing a yearbook on Education and Globalism.
Members of NSSE who have subscribed to the yearbooks in the past as well as new readers may subscribe to the yearbooks for 2009 at the NSSE Yearbooks online site: http://nsse-chicago.org/
At this time the editors of the Teachers College Record are pleased to announce an open call for proposals for future volumes of the NSSE Yearbooks for the years 2010 and beyond. The guidelines for preparing proposals are available online at: http://nsse-chicago.org/ProposalGuidelines.asp
We look forward to working with editors and chapter authors to continue this tradition of outstanding scholarship in the field.
