Publication Opportunities for ICSD 2019 International Conference

A major objective of the ICSD 2019 International Conference is to facilitate the publication of scholarship based on the conference presentations in order to advance the literature on social development.

To accomplish this objective, we are pursuing publication opportunities including but not limited to:

1. Edited Books – we aim to work with conference participants to collect high quality papers on specific themes or subthemes to be revised for publication in edited books.

2. Special Issues – we are proposing Special Issues of academic journals on topics related to the conference themes where conference participants will be able to submit papers. For example, one Special Issue will focus on human rights and sustainability (broadly conceived) in the Asia-Pacific region to be published in the Journal of Human Rights and Social Work.

3. Journal Articles – we also strongly encourage conference participants to submit papers based on conference presentations to the ICSD journal Social Development Issues and the newly established journal International Journal of Community and Social Development. The editors of these journals will be attending the conference and available for consultation.

Specific questions regarding publication opportunities should be directed to
