RESEARCH FOR ALL − SPECIAL CALL FOR PAPERS 


For contributors to the Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) Conference 2020+1 


Authors of PCST 2020+1 oral or visual conference presentations are invited to submit manuscripts for publication in a thematic feature of the journal Research for All.  This is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal focusing on research that involves universities and communities, services or industries working together. There are no article processing charges. The journal is free to write for and free to read.  

This feature will span the professional, cultural, international and disciplinary interests represented at PCST 2020 +1.  We particularly welcome papers by a combination of authors writing together from academia, practice, public services, industry or other communities. Papers will be handled according to the same criteria applied to papers submitted to other issues.

Please visit the Research for All website for a full description of the journal’s aims and scope, guidance on submitting work and notes for authors.  We strongly recommend submitting first, and as soon as possible, an abstract of 300−400 words and a completed contributor questionnaire that makes clear

  1. the key learning
  2. audiences likely to be interested
  3. your participation in PCST 2020 +1.  

A link to the contributor questionnaire can be found on the ‘Submissions’ tab on the journal’s website.


Full papers are required by 7 June 2021, a date chosen to allow authors to take advantage of discussion at the conference before submission.
