Call for Papers: Relationships in the time of COVID 19: Examining the effects of the global pandemic on personal relationships, for a Special issue of Journal of Social and Personal Relationships. Deadline: September 1, 2020.
Dr. Jennifer Bevan (Chapman University) and Dr. Pamela Lannutti (La Salle University) are editing a special issue of Journal of Social and Personal Relationships entitled “Relationships in the time of COVID 19: Examining the effects of the global pandemic on personal relationships.” This special issue of JSPR focused on the effects of the pandemic on personal relationships will serve as a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners as we work to understand the pandemic’s personal and social implications and to develop recommendations for scholars and practitioners in assisting relational partners to thrive in such difficult times.
Editors expect the special issue will serve as a catalyst to develop and challenge multiple theoretical and methodological aspects of relationship science. They will only consider papers where the pandemic is a central focus of the research project. Papers in the issue will be consistent with existing JSPR guidelines and requirements for papers.
