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
original theoretical or conceptual analyses of feminist science and
reviews of literature to help develop new ideas and directions for
explorations of feminist teaching methods, black student/white
cultural phenomena that affect the classroom climate.
