Journal of the Global Việt Diaspora: Call for Papers
The Global Viet is excited to announce the launch of its e-journal called the Journal of the Global Viet Diaspora. Hosted at http://blogs.bauer.uh.edu/vietDiaspora/, this peer- reviewed journal is currently considering manuscripts for inclusion in its first issue launching in the winter of 2013.
The Journal of the Global Viet Diaspora is edited by Long Le (University of Houston) and co-edited by Yuk Wah Chan (City University of Hong Kong) and Mark A. Ashwill (Capstone Vietnam). The Journal of Global Viet Diaspora promotes the publication of high-quality research on Vietnamese diasporic experiences, broadly defined. Our Advisory Board reflects this commitment. Members of the Advisory Board include:
- Carl Bankston, Tulane University
- David Haines, George Mason University
- Benedict Kerkvliet, Australia National University
- Le Dang Doanh, Former President of Vietnam’s Central Institute for Economics Management
- Bruce Lockhart, National University of Singapore
- Nguyen Manh Hung, George Mason University
- Nguyen Thanh Viet, University of Southern California
- Sophie Quinn-Judge, Temple University
- Carl Thayer, Australia National University
Together, we are looking for manuscripts which make a significant contribution in understanding the dimensions, the characterizations, and/or the trajectories of Vietnamese diasporic experiences across time and space.
Aside from research articles, we welcome resource papers that introduce and articulate new data not readily accessible to our readers; methodologies that can be used by community groups and other researchers to study and document Vietnamese diasporic experiences; and/or relevant teaching pedagogy that enhance courses covering Vietnamese diasporic experiences.
We also welcome practitioners’ essays that articulate the challenges, opportunities, and accomplishments facing Vietnamese diasporic groups or communities. A practitioner’s essay draws on his or her experiences in order to offer effective strategies, policies, and/or programs. The editors maintain an efficient review and publication process.
The turnaround time is on average 4-5 weeks from submission to a first decision.
Manuscripts, including footnotes, must not exceed 14,000 words. The minimum length is 3,000 words, not including footnotes. An abstract of approximately 100 words should accompany each manuscript.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as a Word Document in double-spaced typescript with 1 1/2 inch margins all around. Authors must follow the style manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) (6th edition). For reference, see http://umclibrary.crk.umn.edu/apa6thedition.pdf.
The editors encourage the author to enhance the article with illustrations. Digital images should be high resolution. If you use illustrations protected by a copyright, you will be responsible for securing permission rights.
Authors should not submit a manuscript that has been published or that is currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
