SOCIAL JUSTICE RESEARCH
CALL FOR PAPERS ON “JUSTICE AND HEALTH”

Guest editors: Yukiko Asada (Dalhousie University), Erik Schokkaert (KU Leuven)

Submission deadline for one-page abstracts: November 30, 2017
(please email to Yukiko.Asada@Dal.Ca and erik.schokkaert@kuleuven.be)

Submission deadline for papers (based on accepted abstracts): June 30, 2018.
We expect that the special issue will appear in 2019.
Social Justice Research plans a special issue in “Justice and Health”, to appear in 2019. This issue will be multidisciplinarily oriented, and will be open to contributions from psychology, sociology, economics, philosophy, epidemiology, public health, political science, public administration etc, as long as the research makes a contribution to the theoretical and/or empirical state of the art. Guest editors are Yukiko Asada and Erik Schokkaert.

The editors will consider contributions related to the following contexts:

  • (a) Priority setting: how to decide equitably about which treatments should be included in the insurance package – or provided by the public system?
  • (b) Inequality and inequity in health outcomes.
  • (c) Inequity in access to the health care system (e.g., who pays? Is there equality of access based on need?).

These topics can be approached in different ways:

  • (a) Conceptual questions about how to define “justice” in the contexts above.
  • (b) Empirical work on how people think about justice.
  • (c) Empirical work on actual systems, i.e., on how equitable is the existing situation.

It is important that authors make sure to clarify and define whatever ‘fairness concept’ they use, whether or not they focus on equity, equality or the umbrella notion of justice.

Proposed one-page abstracts should be sent by email to Yukiko.Asada@Dal.Ca and erik.schokkaert@kuleuven.be before November 30, 2017. Authors will be notified about the acceptance of their proposal before December 31, 2017.

All submissions will go through the usual SJR peer-review process. Conditional on acceptance of the proposal, full papers should be submitted using the online system, specifying that the submission is for the special issue on the “Justice and Health”. Instructions for authors are available at www.springer.com/11211

For any questions about the special issue, please feel free to contact us at Yukiko.Asada@Dal.Ca or erik.schokkaert@kuleuven.be.

Social Justice Research publishes original papers that have broad implications for social scientists investigating the origins, structures, and consequences of justice in human affairs.
The journal encompasses justice-related research work using traditional and novel approaches, and spanning the social sciences and beyond: psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, social policy research, political science, law, management science, and others.
This multidisciplinary approach advances the integration of diverse social science perspectives. In addition to original research papers - theoretical, empirical, and methodological - the journal publishes book reviews and, from time to time, special thematic issues.
Social Justice Research is published by Springer and is the official journal of the International Society for Justice Research (ISJR).
