The journal Regional and Sectoral Economic Studies (RSES) is planning to publish an issue dedicated to the Economics of Education, with the title “Education and Gender”. The aim of this special issue is to compile papers focusing on the difference by gender in educational processes, in educational outcomes and also in the insertion into the labor market.
This special issue is the result of an agreement between the Euro-American Association of Economic Development Studies and the Spanish Economics of Education Society (AEDE). This call for papers is open not only to the members of the AEDE, but also to all the researchers working in the field of Economics of Education.
Authors are invited to submit papers for this special issue. Papers will be selected on the basis of an anonymous peer review refereeing process.
Interested authors must send the paper, as well as an abstract (no more than 200 words), three keywords and JEL codes before 8th February 2014. Papers must be sent to the guest editors Marta Rahona and Susana Morales to editor.rses (at) economicsofeducation (dot) com
Instructions for authors can be found at http://www.usc.es/~economet/rsesrules.htm. It must be emphasized that articles should not exceed 30 pages (including tables and figures) and that they should be written in Times New Roman, font size 11, and line spacing 1.5.
