Call for papers

19-05-2022

These calls for papers invite submissions that explore:

  • The effects of bereavement and grief on mental health, with particular emphasis on implications for practice
  • Bereavement support needs and experiences in relation to all aspects of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI)
  • Post-Covid grief, lessons that can be learned, and experiences
  • Grief and bereavement work with under-represented groups in the bereavement field
  • The social contexts of bereavement and the aftermath of death

As well as original research and literature reviews (up to 8000 words) we welcome shorter pieces (1000-2000 words) on issues affecting bereavement care practice, policy, research and the support of bereaved people. These are designed to discuss and reflect on a topic of contemporary relevance in bereavement research, practice or policy and are written in a discursive style.

We also welcome proposals for themed sections edited by guest editors. If interested in guest editing a themed section of Bereavement on one of the above topics or another topic of interest please submit a proposal to the editorial office.
