The journal welcomes contributions of different kinds and origins. Apart from traditional journal articles, the journal welcomes short opinion pieces or research notes, interviews, staged debates, or indeed longer than normal journal articles. Download the call for papers here.
Many of the early contributions concern situations where economic aspects are central to the valuation practices examined. One crucial feature with the notion of valuation is, however, that it allows for examining the variable presence or absence of different registers of worth. This flexibility is central to Valuation Studies since it allows for interesting juxtapositions of studies of different phenomena (such as the practices of aesthetic valuations in different domains) or indeed of studies of highly different valuation practices concerning the same phenomena (such as the different and divergent practices of valuing movies). We, therefore, encourage contributions from a variety of fields as well as ideas for themes of special issues that would foster valuable conversations about valuation as a social practice.
Submissions are done on-line at: OJS manuscript system
We have in November 2016 started using the OJS manuscript system. The accounts of users signed up with our previous manuscript system have been transferred to OJS. Users will, however, need to request a new password. This is done by pressing the link "Forgot your password?" at the login screen and follow the instructions. New users will simply need to register before making their submission.
Proposals for contributing interviews, debates or special issues are directed to the editors using firstname.lastname@example.org
The main form of contribution is the traditional journal article. The journal further welcomes short opinion pieces or research notes, interviews, staged debates, or indeed longer than normal journal articles. Contributions are subject to traditional double-blind review by at least two reviewers, except in cases when this procedure is not tenable (e.g., interviews, staged debates).
Valuation Studies is completely open access and authors will retain the copyright to their contributions.
Valuation Studies is indexed at EBSCO (Academic Search Premier) from 2015 and at DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals). The editorial office disseminates together with LiU e-press information about the journal widely. Measures are also taken to make the journal part of major indexing services like: Scopus, Jstor, and ISI.
