After the release of our most recent issue of the International Journal for Students as Partners (IJSaP) we are sharing a call for participation for a new section of the journal. IJSaP is piloting a new section of the journal called “Voices from the Field.” The goal of this section is to create a venue for a wide range of voices to address important questions around students-as-partners work without going through the intensive time commitment required by the submission, review, and revision processes. We want to hear your voices and put them into dialogue with one another!
We are posting this open call for thoughts on the question below, and we will organize excerpts from the responses we receive into what we hope will be a creative, engaging, accessible format to share with readers. We’ll see how this pilot goes and either turn “Voices from the Field” into a permanent section, include it occasionally, or revisit the idea altogether.

We are looking for 15-20 contributions by 7 December 2020. Please use this link to submit your response to the question. If we reach this number before the deadline you will no longer be able to make a submission, so please check the link before you start writing.
Please pass this note on to anyone you think may be interested.
