Call for Papers (Journal Articles): Special Issue of Environment and History on Parks and Gardens

Environment and History  is looking to build on the success of its sponsored 'Parks and Gardens' panels at the European Society for Environmental History this summer in Versailles by putting together a special issue of the journal focused on park and garden history.

Just a note re CUP Melbourne

Listers looking for a publisher may be interested to know that Cambridge University Press in Melbourne now only publishes texbooks.  

However, this is not mentioned on their website. And they make you wait up to 8 weeks to tell you this!

If you want your manuscript considered by CUP,  it's quicker to send it straight to HQ in the UK. The advice to authors page (www.authornet.cambridge.org) has a number of contacts in different subject areas. 

cheers
