Research for Sex Work is seeking contributions for its 14th edition, themed ‘Sex work is work’. This theme reflects one of NSWP's core values: the acceptance of sex work as legitimate work. This value reflects the importance of labour rights as an important step in upholding the human rights of sex workers as individuals and as members of the workforce.

Research for Sex Work is an international journal that incorporates research results, experiences and reports on the subject of sex work within a human rights framework. We welcome three writing formats: research results, project or programme descriptions, and think pieces.

The journal aims to cover all geographical regions, and we do give priority to submissions from sex worker individuals and groups. Authors who should consider contributing are sex worker groups, support organisations, HIV prevention projects, NGOs, universities and research institutions.

Submissions must be in English, and the text will be edited and peer reviewed before being published. The maximum length for an abstract is 300 words, with articles limited to 1200.

To submit an article or ask a questions, write to our editor Heather at R4SW.Editor[at] Abstracts are due 31 July 2014 23:59 GMT
