Propose an Issue
Open Access Nest Journal invites proposals for "Special Issue" from noted academics, researchers and professionals. The proposals must be in the scope of the journal.
Before submitting a formal proposal, we strongly encourage you to send a presubmission inquiry prior to any formal manuscript submission.
- In your email, please include the following:
- Title of the proposed Special Issue
- Goal of the proposed Special Issue
- How your issue is novel and how it would advance the research field
- Background of guest editors (one paragraph for each editor)
- Background of the proposal (e.g. colloquium, conference, special invitation)
- Relevance to current research
- Projected readership
- Title and 200-word abstract for each paper
- A list of potential contributors and subject areas/paper titles
- Expected date of completion
- No additional documents required (CVs, conference literature, etc.)
A special issue may be proposed to cover the papers, discussions, case studies and speeches on a conference, symposium or panel.
If the proposal is accepted, you will be invited to work as the "Leading Guest Editor" for your special issue by the Editorial Board.
Responsibility of Leading Guest Editor

As the project may be rejected, or you may be asked to revise the proposal, please ensure that all authors are aware that their contribution may not be required.
