4. Call for Manuscripts: Environmental Challenges and Asia. EAA Winter 2010
Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the
Association for Asian Studies. Our readers include undergraduate
instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our
articles are intended to provide educators, who are often not
specialists, with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Qualified
referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration.
We are in the process of developing a special section entitled
“Environmental Challenges and Asia” for the winter 2010 issue of EAA. In
this special section, we invite authors to submit manuscripts that
address topics such as the potential conflicts between economic growth
and the environment in Asia, the environmental movement in Asian
countries, natural resources and their utilization and conservation, and
environmental problems that affect particular Asian countries. We are
looking for manuscripts about all areas of Asia.
Prospective authors should be aware that approximately sixty percent of
our readers are secondary or middle school teachers and the rest teach
at the undergraduate level. We are most interested in manuscripts that
are useful for survey-level courses. Please consult the EAA guidelines,
available on the Web site under my signature, before submitting a
manuscript for this special section. Prospective authors are also
encouraged to share possible manuscript ideas with me via email. The
deadline for initial submission of manuscripts is August 10, 2010.
