Call for Practice papers

Open Call for Practice Papers

Do you have lessons to share that would strengthen the work of voluntary sector organisations? If so, publishing a practice paper in the Voluntary Sector Review could be the way for you to make an impact on how these organisations realise their goals.

The Voluntary Sector Review is an international peer review journal published by Policy Press in association with the Voluntary Sector Studies Network (VSSN). A unique feature of the Voluntary Sector Review is the combination of papers aimed at academic, policy and practice audiences.

In order to strengthen the practical impact of academic writing and research, the Review actively encourages the submission of specific, focused practice papers.  A practice paper is shorter and less formal than a full academic research paper, and is an opportunity for practitioners and academics to reflect on practice-based learning that could be useful for others working in similar organisations.
To find out more about how to write a Practice Paper, see our guide for authors.

For further information or to discuss whether your project could be the subject of a practice paper please contact the Practice Editors at the Voluntary Sector Review:
