Call for papers -NICEC journal

Call for Abstracts for the October 2016 issue of the NICEC Journal.

The publication of the NICEC journal in October 2016 will focus on Masters dissertations or Doctoral theses from students working in career learning and development, career guidance and counselling, or career coaching. We are asking University tutors to select a completed[1] work from one (or possibly more) of their excellent students, which they consider worthy of dissemination in the NICEC journal in the form of an article.

If the student would like to publish, it is possible that they will require support from their tutor before they submit the abstract and drafts of their article. Turning a dissertation or a thesis into a 3,500 word article is not easy and will require guidance on how to focus, condense and write up the main arguments and findings. This support can be via informal help or by a process of co-authoring. The timeline for submission follows. The editor will provide feedback and will make the final decision on inclusion in the journal.
