The exchange of scholars and scholarly information will be encouraged by ARISC’s support for conferences, fellowships, publications, teaching resources, and other forms of cooperation for use both in the United States and in the host countries where the Institute is located.

ARISC, like other American Overseas Research Centers, a private, not-for-profit organization, will provide a meeting place for U.S. and local scholars of all disciplines in the capitals of the South Caucasian countries and, over time, library resources.

We welcome the participation of new institutions, individuals and students who are interested in becoming members of ARISC.

CfP Journal: International Journal of Sociology and Anthropology

Introducing ‘‘International Journal of Sociology and Anthropology”

The International Journal of Sociology and Anthropology (IJSA) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published that will be monthly by Academic Journals (http://www.academicjournals.org/IJSA, www.acadjourn.org/ijsa). IJSA is dedicated to increasing the depth of the subject across disciplines with the ultimate aim of expanding knowledge of the subject.

Call for Papers

IJSA will cover all areas of the subject. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish:
Original articles in basic and applied research
Case studies
Critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays

We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to ijsa.manuscript@gmail.com or ijsa.acadjourn@yahoo.com for publication. Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript(s) within four weeks of submission. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next issue. Instruction for authors and other details are available on our website; http://www.academicjournals.org/IJSA/Instruction.htm

IJSA is an Open Access Journal

One key request of researchers across the world is unrestricted access to research publications. Open access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works. It also enhances indexing, retrieval power and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. IJSA is fully committed to the Open Access Initiative and will provide free access to all articles as soon as they are published.

The University of Rochester Press is accepting manuscripts for its publication series entitled Rochester Studies in East/Central Europe.

Professor Timothy Snyder, Professor of History at Yale University, serves as series editor, and is assisted by a panel of scholars from a variety of institutions. The editorial board seeks new projects and formats ranging from monographs to edited volumes representing myriad points of view.

The series encompasses contemporary and historical works relating to all areas of East and Central Europe including the territory of the former Habsburg Empire, the western Soviet Republics and their successor states, and the Balkans. We seek manuscripts of original historical synthesis on a variety of subjects, and would especially welcome works that cross traditional disciplinary, geographic, and period boundaries (for example on the Ottoman Empire in Southeastern Europe, or the Central European diaspora in Latin America). We will consider works of literature in translation and historical memoir, in both cases only when English language rights are available.

To submit an appropriate project for consideration, please send a formal proposal or prospectus. The proposal should include: 1) a brief but detailed synopsis of the work, outlining its intended contribution to the existing literature; 2) an abstract of 300 words or less, summarizing the work's content; 3) a complete table of contents and one or two sample chapters; 4) an updated CV. Scholars interested in submitting their work for consideration should request a proposal form from the press editor: guiod@uofrochesterpresss.net
