Journal of Professional Studies

Announcement and Call for Papers

The Journal of Professional Studies (JPS) is a new scholarly, peer-reviewed
journal published by St. John's University in New York and devoted to the
pedagogic needs and research interests of those working within career-oriented
disciplines. The journal therefore welcomes articles from a wide range of
professional disciplines, including but not limited to, such fields as
Criminal Justice, Health Services, Hospitality Management, Computer Science,
Sports Administration, Television and Film, Legal Studies, Administration and
Economics, and Journalism.

Scholars and professionals are invited to submit articles that will provide
readers with new and valuable research results, stimulate their thinking about
developments in their fields, and provide a critical forum for further
discussion and scholarship. Articles may either be theoretical, experimental,
or empirical in their approach to their subject; all methodologies are
acceptable. We are, however, especially interested in articles which explore
issues that cut across specialized boundaries and which exhibit an awareness
of recent research in a field.

The journal is now accepting articles for publication consideration for its
first issue in late fall 2003 or early spring 2004. The major theme or focus
for this issue is Professional Ethics. Approaches to this theme might include
(but are not limited to) such topics or issues as:

Ethical Implications of Globalization Ethics in the Classroom
Ethical Issues in Health Research Journalism and Ethics
Law and Bioethics Ethics and Grading
Ethics and Popular Media Business Ethics
Ethics, Technology, and Privacy Ethics and Campus Sports
Computer and Info-Tech Ethics Ethics and Gender Issues
Research Ethics Ethics in Advertising
Ethics and Management Cyberporn
Privacy, Surveillance and Profiling Ethics in the News
Terrorism and Ethics Ethics and Computers in the Workplace
Universities and the Development of a Code of Ethics
Ethical Standards and the Reporting of Scientific Information

Although Ethics will be the central theme of the first issue, articles on
other subjects of interest to scholars and researchers in Professional Studies
will also be welcomed.
