Proposals for thematic issues
Guest editors submit proposals for thematic issues to the journal’s editorial board. Proposals include the names of the guest editors, a proposal title and a short summary (between 500 and 1,000 words) with a presentation of the theme proposed.
Proposal reviews for thematic issues
The editorial board examines proposals based on their originality and on thematic (non-)redundancy with former thematic issues (http://www.lans-tts.be/FormerIssues.htm). A proposal generally consists of a general description of the theme proposed, followed by more specific research topics and/or suggestions for research questions. Please do not provide an exhaustive list of research questions. Proposals for thematic issues are examined at the annual meeting of the editorial board, which takes place annually in November. The editorial board may accept the proposal, reject it, postpone it or ask guest editors for modifications.
