Conferences are not the only places that "call for papers." Journals may also put out a "call for papers" and this may be just your ticket to finding a publisher for your research. The practice of soliciting papers for theme issues varies from journal to journal, with some journals having every issue centered around a theme to infrequent or non-existent theme issues.
How do you find journals that are soliciting articles? The best way is visiting the journal publisher's web site. Some publisher's post "calls" for all journals on one website, for example, Routledge Publishers and Elsevier. In another example, the publisher posted the "calls" on the website for each journal, for example, Early Education & Development or The Journal of College Science Teaching.
How can you find these "calls"? One good starting point is Google. Try searches such as the following and note the dates as Google will also post "calls" for which the date is past.
Who knows, publishers may be "calling" for papers just like yours!

NEW AERA BOOK
Studying Diversity in Teacher Education is a collaborative effort by experts seeking to elucidate one of the most important issues facing education today. The volume examines historically persistent, unresolved issues in teacher education and research currently being done to address these issues, presents frameworks, perspectives, and paradigms to reframe research on complex teacher education issues, and presents an agenda for future research. Studying Diversity in Teacher Education is a vital resource for all those interested in diversity and education research. Check VIRGO, to see if UVa's copy is available.

The video, "Growing and Learning in Preschool,” produced by the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) is a five-minute video showing the essential features of a high-quality preschool program. You'll see how a preschool curriculum based on solid research builds school and life-related skills, why well-qualified teachers are so important, and how play is integrated into learning. This is one of several videos produced by NIEER and available online.

For those of you who enjoyed the 2006-2007 Small Special Collections Library exhibit, The Firebird and the Factory: Modern Russian Children's Books, you will want to visit the University of Chicago Library's virtual version of its exhibit, Adventures in the Soviet Imaginary: Children's Books and Graphic Art. The exhibition explores the Soviet Union as a world created in the wake of the 1917 Russian revolutions and facilitated by a vibrant image culture based largely on new media technologies.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
Daylight savings time ENDS Sunday, November 6th at 2:00am. Be sure to set your clocks back an hour. For example, if you get up Sunday morning at Noon, it will really be 11:00 am, so you have 60 more minutes to sleep. Another way to think of this is that Sunday is a 25 hour day because the clocks are turned back to standard time this weekend. Enjoy the long weekend!
Because you will have such a nice, long weekend, this will be a great time to test and change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors!

NCES recently released the report, Student Victimization in U.S. Schools. In the 2008–09 school year, about 3.9 percent of students ages 12 through 18 reported that they were victims of a crime at school according to a report released by the National Center for Education Statistics. Data are collected on student criminal victimization through its sponsorship of the School Crime Supplement (SCS) to the National Crime Victimization Survey, administered by the Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics. The survey collects student reports of the presence of gangs and weapons and the availability of drugs and alcohol at school, traditional and electronic bullying, and fear and avoidance behaviors of crime victims and nonvictims at school.
