Call for Papers for JERHRE sent in by Sarena Seifer-- Posted by Mary Brydon-Miller

We thought some of you might be interested in contributing to this special issue of the Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics.  Our thanks to Sarena Seifer for sending along the CFP!

Call for Papers on Community-Based Participatory Research

The September and December 2010 issues of Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics (JERHRE) will be devoted to CBPR

The theme of these two issues will be:

New Models for Reducing Barriers between Researchers and Communities
(although not exclusively)

These special issues of JERHRE will explore new models for achieving success in community-based participatory research using new media, new kinds of collaborations, new social dynamics, new combinations of social research methods, new goals, or new ways of assessing risks to the community per se and its members. They may also examine ways to sustain programs when funding is interrupted. While researchers are primarily interested in research, communities are primarily interested in programs and services; accordingly, these special issues of JERHRE may also examine ways of creating and sustaining program services along with research.

Deadlines for submission of manuscripts: June 1 for possible September publication.

August 1 for possible December publication.

Papers accepted for publication, but not in time for inclusion in these special issues, will be published in the next issue of JERHRE.

Submit papers in Word format as email attachments to Editor-in-Chief Joan E. Sieber ( and to special guest editor Nancy Shore, Assistant Professor of Social Work at the University of New England and Senior Consultant, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health ( Please see for manuscript preparation instructions and other details about JERHRE.
