"Mentoring and career development"

Special Issue of Career Development International

For some time, mentoring has been recognized as an important developmental relationship, benefiting the careers of mentors and protégés alike. More recently, emphasis has been placed on understanding the nature of the relationship itself and the context within which such relationships are developed. To further the continued exploration of mentoring as a dyadic relationship set within today's increasingly dynamic career context, Career Development International will be publishing the Special Issue, "Mentoring and career development," in late 2005. The Special Issue will be co-edited by Sherry E. Sullivan (Bowling Green State University) and S. Gayle Baugh (University of West Florida).

Submissions may be oriented toward either the internal (dyadic) or external (organizational or broader) context of mentoring relationships. Papers that focus on mentoring as one feature of a larger context of influences on career development are especially welcomed. Papers on the impact of globalization on mentoring or mentoring across international boundaries are welcomed. Empirical submissions, utilizing either quantitative or qualitative research methods, as well as conceptual manuscripts, are encouraged.

Manuscripts should be e-mailed to S. Gayle Baugh at (tel. 850-474-2206). Submissions should be no more than 5-6K words and should be set out in line with the "Submission requirements" outlined in the journal's Author Guidelines (see inner rear cover of this issue). Manuscripts should be presented in a format suitable for blind review. The deadline for submission is February 14, 2005.</P
