Call for Papers - Volume 3!

The Editorial Collective invites submissions for Volume 3 of New Proposals. We encourage the submission of papers that take a politically engaged stance. We are interested in full length articles (3,000 to 5,000 words) as well as shorter commentaries (up to 2,500 words).

Papers should be no more than 3,000 - 5,000 words. References and citations are to be kept to the minimum required to advance your argument. Articles can be based in original research, synthetic reviews, or theoretical engagements. We look forward to -in fact expect- a diversity of perspectives and approaches that, while they may disagree on the particulars, they will share with the Editorial Collective a commitment to an engaged scholarship that prioritizes social justice.

We are also interested in proposals for themed issues. Given our electronic open access format New Proposals has a faster than typical turnaround time from submission to editorial decision. We will also work with you to find a way to fit your concept into our mandate for excellent, peer-reviewed, progressive scholarship.

New Proposals is a transnational peer-reviewed journal hosted at The University of British Columbia in collaboration with the UBC Library Journal Project.

To submit papers go to and register as an author.

If you are curious please feel free to sign up as a reader and/or as a reviewer.
