Call for papers: Care, caring and the global COVID-19 pandemic

The International Journal of Care and Caring (Bristol University Press) invites scholars around the world to prepare papers based on new research or scholarly reflection on experience of the pandemic.

Among the themes authors may wish to address, we would highlight: government and policymaker responses; effects on carers and care workers; how different types of care organisation responded or were affected; how the pandemic affected public attitudes to care; and implications for the quality and sufficiency of care.

We are delighted that distinguished scholars Joan Tronto and Michael Fine have agreed to edit this very special themed issue of IJCC.

We aim to publish 6-10 high quality research articles (5,000-8,000 words) and hope also to include several ‘Debates and Issues’ contributions (shorter pieces which can be practice-led or can discuss ideas and concerns). Research articles will go through peer review processes, but will be fast-tracked and published online swiftly after acceptance.

Deadline for extended abstract (500 words): 30 September 2020
Notification of inclusion: 12 October
Deadline for completed articles: 31 January 2021
