Regional Studies, Regional Science invites early career papers

Regional Studies, Regional Scienceinvites early career papers.
*Please forward this message on to early career researchers*
Regional Studies, Regional Science, the new open access journal from the Regional Studies Association, has a section specifically devoted to publishing short articles from students and early career researchers to make their research accessible to a wide audience. Authors of accepted abstracts will be assigned an Early Career Papers editor who will mentor them through the submission process and guide them towards the publication of a high-quality article.
All articles published in Regional Studies, Regional Science are published open access, which means that the article is freely available in perpetuity online. Article Publishing Charges (APCs), normally payable for papers published in RSRS, will be waived for those who are accepted by this Early Career Papers mentored route.
Julie Porter (Towson University), Lead Editor of the Early Career Papers Section, has been very pleased with the papers already submitted:

'The editorial team has been impressed by both the quality of the proposals submitted as well as their global span.  The commitment of the RSA to support the publication of PhD students and early career researchers work is evident.  We look forward to working closely with the selected authors to advance their papers and to publish in RSRS shortly.'

The next deadline for submissions is the 15th June.For more information read the Early Career Papers CFPand the RSRS Instructions for Authors.
