If you have an idea for a contribution, we strongly encourage you to send the editors a brief (250 words) proposal for an art work, analytical or reflective essay (i.e. book review, interview or debate) in the scope of Humans 2.0. This will encourage a conversation between you as potential author(s) and the editorial board, improving the chance that your proposed piece fits with the focus of the journal. Your proposal should outline the type of contribution (art work, review of what book, etc.) and the focus of the potential submission.
You can read more on the different types of contributions in the module Getting Published.
Do you have an idea that fits the above description? We would love to hear it via the link below!
