Call for Ideas and Proposals: International Handbook for Governance, Leadership, Administration, and Management in Education

The International Handbook for Governance, Leadership, Administration, and Management in Education (Springer) is now calling for chapter proposals. This international handbook is edited by Prof. Dr. Stephan Huber, Chair of Excellence Leadership, Quality Management and Innovation, Department of Educational Research, Linz School of Education, Johannes Kepler University Linz and Head of Leadership University of Teacher Education Schwyz, Switzerland. The book will be published by Springer:

Aims and Scope
This handbook aims to bring together rigorously reviewed top-quality contributions by distinguished authors from research, policy and practice from around the world. It provides a comprehensive up-to-date compilation of important issues of and around educational governance, leadership, administration, and management. In the tradition of the two previous International Handbooks of Educational Leadership (Leithwood, Chapman, Corson, Hallinger, & Hart, 1996; Leithwood & Hallinger, 2002), this handbook is theory-oriented and methodology-based and also seeks to cover research and practice.

General Information for Authors
The International Handbook for Governance, Leadership, Administration, and Management in Education uses an electronic submission and review process. Authors are strongly advised to carefully read the Aims and Scope of the handbook. Proposals that clearly do not meet standards for scholarship or are not consistent with the Aims & Scope will not be sent out for review.

Chapter proposals should be submitted via https://www.unipark.de/uc/IH-GLAME/

Authors will be required provide personal information. Authors shall also clearly indicate which section(s) they wish to author. All the chapter proposals should be approximately 500 words in length, following the style of the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). Authors should strictly review the proposals to avoid plagiarism and self-plagiarism before the submission. All the proposals will be screened, and the selected authors will be contacted by the editorial board to submit a full chapter manuscript.
