We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the EBSCO Literature Database, an expanding online database of academic introductory articles for college students on analysis and reviews of classic works of literature. These articles cover a wide variety of authors in the popular culture from Shakespeare to Twain. The articles will be published in 2018 by EBSCO (www.ebsco.com).
The Literature articles are designed to assist students during the key exploratory phase at the beginning of a research project. Written as an overview, articles should provide general but key information relative to a literary work, presented in a fact-based and objective discussion. The articles will act as summaries that provide students with background and perspective on the topic/issue at hand in the literary work so that students have a better understanding of the topic, are prepared to conduct a more specific search, and are prepared to make an educated thesis statement.
Geared toward an academic audience (undergraduates, librarians, and teachers), these articles should be written using a neutral voice, similar to that found in encyclopedia articles, following the format explained in the guidelines provided. Each article will be signed by the contributor and advanced degrees are being listed along with the bylines.
We are assigning the last group of articles with a deadline of no later than December 30. Each article is 1,500 words with payments of $100 per article. Payments are issued only via PayPal or by check and are only issued after receipt and acknowledgement by the editor.
The available Article List, Style Guidelines, and a Sample Article will be sent upon request.APPLY TO JOB
