Publishing on vet-ness: Veterans studies venues
University of Alabama
Since the first Veterans in Society Conference in 2013, interest in veteran-ness has risen steadily – from the implementation of several post-secondary degree programs across the country to an influx of refereed, interdisciplinary publications — until recently, scholars of veterans studies may have experienced difficulty finding publication venues appropriate for their scholarship. Two examples include a premier journal of veterans studies and the other of an unfolding book series on veterans studies.
The editors of both publications discuss their and other publishing opportunities for scholars interested in covering issues of veteran-ness. Attendees can expect to learn the ins and outs of editorial expectations for the journal and how they can pursue a book in the series, and to discuss other opportunities for sharing their research. Time will be allotted for breakout groups with each editor to discuss attendees’ scholarship and possible venues for its publication.
