Computer Science Journals (CSC Journals) invites researchers, editors, scientists & scholars to publish their scientific research papers in an International Journal of Engineering (IJE) Volume 6, Issue 3.
International Journal of Engineering (IJE) is devoted in assimilating publications that document development and research results within the broad spectrum of subfields in the engineering sciences. The journal intends to disseminate knowledge in the various disciplines of the engineering field from theoretical, practical and analytical research to physical implications and theoretical or quantitative discussion intended for both academic and industrial progress.
"Automating Conduct: Autonomy in Control" (Vol 4, Issue 2)
Abstract Submissions Due: APRIL 26 2012
Full Paper Submissions Due: JULY 22 2012
PLATFORM: Journal of Media and Communication encourages all contributions related to media studies, with special consideration given to engagement with the cultures, politics and social issues layered within automation and transparency.
The family—as a social institution, as field of study, as a body of representation and readership—has been underserved by theories of modernism. This oversight may stem from a perception that many of the moderns, such as the Greenwich Village avant-garde, were often averse to an institution they found inherently bourgeois and conservative. This panel invites papers that will consider the family as a center of modernist thought, aesthetics, and praxis.

Concentric: Literary and Cultural Studies
Vol. 39 No. 2 (September 2013)
Special Topic "Phantom Asian America"
Deadline for Submissions: January 31, 2013
Since its emergence in the late 1960s, Asian American studies has gained ground in the academy, and yet the term "Asian America" itself remains in doubt. Where is Asian America? Who are Asian Americans? What constitutes Asian American experience and who is qualified to speak for and about Asian Americans? Why does "Asian American" remain an appealing identity category despite its inherent vagueness?
