*** CALL FOR PAPERS -- Health Literacy Research and Practice -- Special Supplement on Health Literacy and Adult Basic Education - DUE: October 15, 2018 ***
Dear colleagues --
Please share this publishing opportunity with colleagues, and if you're engaged in health literacy work that partners adult educators with public health practitioners, consider submitting an article! And if you're thinking "Who, me? I've never written for an academic journal!", don't hit 'delete' quite yet! Please check out the Information for Authors on the journal's website as there are several submission formats to consider, not just the standard empirical journal article.
CALL FOR PAPERS (also attached)
Health Literacy Research and Practice
Special Supplement on Health Literacy and Adult Basic Education
Deadline for submissions: October 15th
Health literacy and adult basic education practice have much in common, although they have largely developed as separate research, policy, and program domains. We hope this special issue highlights ways in which the health literacy and adult basic education fields have intersected and influenced each other to the benefit of people with the greatest literacy and numeracy challenges. We are particularly interested in submissions from practitioners working in public health and/or adult education who work in community-based organizations, coalitions, and public sector partnerships that have a focus on health literacy promotion. We are happy to consider a full range of articles as described in the author instructions.
Please email questions to Michael Paasche-Orlow, Editor-in-Chief: email@example.com
What kinds of articles would you love to see in this special issue? Here's a quick brainstorm...
- How about a description and analysis of a health partnership you've helped to forge between adult education and a public health organization? Showcase that partnership journey in a "Best Practices" article?
- Got a powerful personal story to share about your work with adult learners who have revolutionized the way you think about health literacy education, advocacy, or policy? Check out the "Mission and Motivation" category....
- Or how about crafting a "Perspectives" piece that conveys your convictions about the need for more innovative thinking around the health literacy needs of under-studied populations, such as immigrant elder learners or adolescents (16-24 year olds) who end up in our ABE programs after failing to thrive in high school?
Please check out the call and the information for authors -- and please forward this opportunity to your colleagues.
