The SANRC would like to request articles for publication in a special FYE edition of Journal of Student Affairs in Africa (JSAA) to be released in 2018. The JSAA is a DHET-accredited journal. The SANRC will be guest-editing this special FYE edition of JSAA.
The SANRC is looking for a maximum of 12 articles in total, both of a research-based and reflective practice nature. We would like to include 2-3 book reviews. We are requesting articles which relate to a critical understanding or experience of the First-Year Experience (FYE) in South Africa. Institutional perspectives of the FYE and how it is constituted at different universities in South Africa are welcome.
The special FYE edition of JSAA will be released in 2018. Information about JSAA, for e.g. the required style format, can be obtained from the JSAA website, http://www.jsaa.ac.za. The timeframes for submission are enclosed below. Kindly assess carefully whether you will be able to fully meet the following timeframes before you commit to this initiative.
If you wish to submit an article to be considered for inclusion in this edition of JSAA, you will need to:
1. Send your article in the required JSAA style format including an abstract and short bio-sketch to firstname.lastname@example.org by latest 30 September 2017. Once you have submitted an article to be considered for inclusion in this edition of JSAA, a SANRC committee will review your article(s) and timeously inform you about the outcome of your submission, i.e. whether or not your submission will be included in this edition of JSAA.
2. Attend to the editorial commentary of peer reviewers by latest 30 November 2017.
