Safety Neal's other hobbies include editorial assistance

I'm on the student advisory board of InterActions: UCLA Journal of Education and Information Studies , a progressive education and information science journal. FYI.

InterActions: UCLA Journal of Education and Information Studies is a peer-reviewed electronic journal that is committed to the promotion of scholarly work that examines areas of education and information studies via interdisciplinary and critical perspectives. The journal seeks to link diverse theoretical and practical projects, as well as provide a space to record the voices of emerging scholars (graduate students and postdoctoral fellows), activists, and practitioners.

As education and information institutions continue to face challenging times, we seek to promote submissions that engage alternative, liberatory possibilities informed by creative theories, methodologies, practices, and visions. In particular, we encourage submissions that:

· Utilize an interdisciplinary framework: Draw upon traditional fields of study (such as policy, sociology, information-seeking and retrieval, pedagogy, evaluation, psychological development, etc.) or provide insight from diverse disciplines (e.g., legal theory, ethnic studies, women’s studies, technology studies, etc.).

· Incorporate critical frameworks and address issues of social inequities:
These frameworks may include, but are not restricted to, feminism, critical race theory, Marxism, post-colonialism, critical pedagogy, queer studies, disability studies, etc. Whether or not submissions utilize these specific lenses, they should demonstrate innovation and commitment to advancing current analyses and discourses in progressive directions.

· Extend conventional areas of study through critical and interdisciplinary frameworks: These areas include, but are not limited to: bilingual education, affirmative action, special education, standards and testing, teacher education, school violence, higher education, social research methodology, information retrieval, access, systems and institutions, etc.

Deadlines: Currently, we are accepting papers for Volume 2, Issue 1. The deadline is January 6, 2005.

Submission Guidelines: All articles undergo a double-blind peer-review. Please visit the website for detailed submission guidelines. Manuscripts that do not abide by the submission guidelines will be returned to the author. Please contact interactions@gseis.ucla.edu for more details.

Please send an electronic version of your submission in Word or Rich Text (rtf) format to: interactions@gseis.ucla.edu. Send FIVE paper copies of your submission to: InterActions: UCLA Journal of Education and Information Studies
