WTIR / Soul of the Next Economy Forum Special Edition – Call for Submissions

Western Talent & Innovation Review / Soul of the Next Economy Forum
Call for Submissions – May 20, 2018

Western Talent & Innovation Review (WTIR) is partnering with the Soul of the Next Economy Forum (SNEF) and will publish a special edition in Fall 2018 on topics from and related to the 2018 forum.

WTIR is an open access, peer reviewed journal that showcases examples, case studies, and best practices of Western Canadian organizations doing innovative things with their talent.

The SNEF is where business, the non-profit sector, government, and educational institutions converge to change the way we do business and impact society. Fuelled through innovation, collaboration, and corporate social responsibility, attendees come together to learn, connect and engage with these topics. This year’s Forum theme is “Innovation for All”. Register here.

WTIR is partnering with the SNEF to release a general Call for Submissions for a special edition of WTIR, that will be published in Fall 2018. We are looking for papers that relate to the following topics:

  • What are organizations in Western Canada doing to address local and global social and development challenges?
  • What are organizations in Western Canada doing to connect peers, industry experts and leaders in other sectors to address social and development challenges?
  • What are organizations in Western Canada doing to engage in sustainable and responsible business practices?
  • How are organizations building sustainable and thriving cultures of innovation?

We encourage students, entrepreneurs, academics, and professionals to submit articles. All papers must abide by the WTIR submission guidelines posted here.

The submission deadline is October 15, 2018 for consideration in the special edition. The target timeline for a response from the WTIR editors is four weeks. WTIR welcomes papers that are not related to the above topics but meet the submission guidelines. Those papers can be submitted at any time through the submission portal on the WTIR website.
