Call for Contributors: The Encyclopedia of the History of Invention and Technology
Publication Date: 2008-12-01
The Encyclopedia of the History of Invention and Technology is seeking contributors for a 5-volume encyclopedia on the social history of technology and invention. The encyclopedia, to be published by Facts On File, will be a history reference focusing on the cultural, social, and economic impact of each invention. This encyclopedia will be a work of history, not a technical or scientific reference, and is intended for general audiences. Each article will be between 1,500-3,000 words in length. If you would like to contribute to this encyclopedia, please send me a statement of interest, a brief c.v./resume or biography describing your qualifications, and a small writing sample. Each entry will be signed with the author’s name, and Facts On File will pay a small honorarium for each article you write.
