Guest Editors - [CALL FOR PROPOSALS]


The Editorial Board for ENQ would like to solicit proposals for guest editorship of themed issues on topics of particular interest to members of the architectural research community. A special issue focuses on a specific area of research that falls within the scope of the journal and the mission of ARCC. It is the intention to release at least one special themed issue per year. The issue will be published under the protocols of ENQ including external indexing and DOI designation.  Guest editors are restricted to those individuals affiliated with ARCC member institutions.

Interested guest editors should prepare a synopsis of their proposed issue including:

  • A brief description of the guest editors, their academic background and relevant publications.
  • A brief description of the theme and its relevance to the current culture in architectural research.
  • A list of possible authors and reviewers

The special edition will include an overview article written by the guest editors. The proposal should outline this overview so to provide a framework of the purpose and scope of the issue.

Articles may be invited and/or by general call. The guest editors will share responsibility for distributing the call for the issue with ARCC dissemination avenues, identifying and assigning reviewers to submitted papers and working alongside the ENQ editorial board to assemble the issue.


Please submit letters of inquiry to:

Philip Plowright,

Editor-in-Chief, ENQ
