Newsletter January 2011

Dear members of the standing group,

This time we have two issues:

1. The 2012 ECPR Joint Sessions of Workshops will take place at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, 10-15 April. The deadline for submission of workshop proposals is 1st February 2011.

How you should proceed to propose a workshop can be found here:

It is one of the tasks for the standing group to support proposals for workshops that are within the field of comparative public opinion and voting behaviour. The support is indicated by sending a list of supported workshops to ECPR close to the deadline for the submission of the proposals. If some of you plan to send a proposal for a workshop at the 2012 ECPR Joint Sessions of Workshops and you want our standing group to evaluate and support the application, we need to know before 20th January. Preferably we would like that you send us the full application which you plan to send to ECPR, but if you have a draft that is not yet the final version, this is also acceptable.

The steering group will then decide which of the applications we will support.

2. In the previous newsletter we recommended that you answer our online survey on the topic of publishing and reviewing in academic journals. If you have not done so already, please do so now! We would very much like to encourage you to take a few minutes (it only takes around 10 minutes) to respond to it. Please just click on the link below:

We thank you in advance for your time.

Best wishes
Oddbjørn and Marina
Convenors of the standing group on “Public Opinion and Voting Behaviour in a Comparative Perspective”.
