Journal of Writing Research: Call for papers

In 2007 EARLI’s Special Interest Group on Writing decided to start an international research journal on writing. Luuk van Waes, Gert Rijlaarsdam & Denis Alamargot, started the preparations for the journal in October 2007. Marie-Françoise Crété (Poitiers) and Mariëlle Leijten (Antwerp/Stafford) will assist the editors. The first issue containing invited (and reviewed) papers is expected to be published in April/May 2008.

The Journal of Writing Research will be made by and for researchers, without any interference from commercial publishers. It will set high standards for quality control, which are guaranteed by double blind reviews, and a strong international editorial board, chaired by Joachim Grabowski & Asa Wengelin. More information about the aims and scope, the editors, the editorial board and procedures can be found on the website:

We are now ready to receive submissions. That is why we have sent you this call for papers and proposals for special issues.

Papers can be submitted via the website. If you wish to submit a paper via the repository database, please, register as a member first (it’s free of charge). When you register, you can also choose to receive alerts in various frequencies when new publications are ready. The same procedure applies for submitting proposals for special issues. A special issue consists of three to five papers on a specific theme, with one or two commentaries.

On behalf of the JoWR editors
