The sooner you submit your chapter the sooner it will be published online and citable. Contributions to all the volumes in this series are peer-reviewed by external experts and volume editors. 

Interested authors please send a 250 words abstract and author bio to Dr. Rajendra Baikady at rajendra.baikady@mail.huji.ac.il or rajendrab@uj.ac.za.  In this round of the project, we are aiming for a maximum of 50 chapters in each of these 10 volumes, hence we will evaluate and accept abstracts/ EI on a first come first basis. Abstract submitted on or before 30th May 2022 will get full consideration. Full chapter Submission deadlines to be agreed between authors and the editorial team within the confines of the dates outlined in the submission schedule found in each document.
