Dear friends and colleagues,
The 25th Annual Postgraduate Population Studies Conference (PopFest) will take place in Stockholm May 31st – June 2nd 2017. The call for papers is now open. PopFest is an annual Population Studies conference for PhD students organized by fellow PhDs. It provides an excellent opportunity to bring together researchers from various Social Science disciplines such as Demography, Sociology, Human Geography, Politics, Urban Planning, Social Anthropology, Social Statistics and other related fields.
The Population Investigation Committee (PIC) seeks applications or expressions of interest for the position of Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of Population Studies: A Journal of Demography, which is owned by the PIC and published for them by the UK office of Taylor & Francis. The successful applicant would lead the team of eleven editors listed below, and succeed John Simons, the current EiC, who is retiring. The appointment will be made by the PIC after consulting the editors.
The PIC is a registered charity in the UK, which produces the Journal as part of its charitable purpose. The Journal was founded in 1947 by David Glass and was the first English-language journal concerned exclusively with demography.
The journal Population, which partners with Openpop to promote population studies, is currently accepting paper submissions from young researchers for a prize of €1,000 and a free year’s subscription to the publication.
We here at OpenPop are proud to announce that we can now call ourselves an award-winning collaborative blog on global population issues!
