                        CALL FOR PAPERS

     The Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering seeks
submissions for its first year of publication.  The first issue will be 
published in Spring, 1994. The purpose of the Journal is to publish original, 
peer-reviewed papers that report innovative ideas and programs, scientific 
studies, and formulation of concepts related to the education, recruitment, and 
retention of underrepresented groups in science and engineering.  Issues 
related to women and minorities in science and engineering will be consolidated 
to address the entire professional and educational environment.  Subjects for 
papers can include:

          empirical studies of current qualitative or quantitative research 
          historical investigations of how minority status impacts science
            and engineering
          original theoretical or conceptual analyses of feminist science and
            Afrocentric science
          reviews of literature to help develop new ideas and directions for
            future research
          explorations of feminist teaching methods, black student/white
            teacher interactions
          cultural phenomena that affect the classroom climate.
