Proposing a Special Issue at EAJSE Journal
Welcome to the EAJSE Journal, where we invite the submission of Special Issues, curated collections of articles that spotlight emerging research areas within a field or provide a platform for in-depth exploration of existing topics. As the Lead Guest Editor of a Special Issue, you have the opportunity to play a pivotal role in scientific communication, encouraging ongoing research in vital areas while gaining valuable editorial experience and enhancing your academic profile. Numerous additional benefits come with the role of being a Guest Editor.

-Structure your proposal as a concise Call for Papers, providing enough background information to entice submissions (not exceeding 400 words).
-Familiarize yourself with open Special Issues in the journal to understand the level of detail and specificity required.
