Call for scientific articles

The organizers of the 2014 International Summit of Cooperatives invite cooperators, authors and researchers to submit empirical or theoretical articles by February 28, 2014.

Solicited article themes

Scientific articles must tie in with the main theme “Cooperatives’ Power of Innovation” and one of the 5 following sub-themes:

  • Developing cooperative and mutual businesses
  • Financing and capitalization for cooperatives and mutuals
  • Food security through cooperatives and mutuals
  • Access to health and social care services through cooperatives and mutuals
  • Solutions to the global employment crisis offered by cooperatives and mutuals

Selected contributions must further discussions and reflection and help identify solutions to address the development and performance challenges facing cooperatives and mutuals.

Special attention will be paid to research carried out in the past year. The selection committee will carefully review new articles as well as articles published in journals with limited circulation (e.g., published in a single country). In this way, local contributions can be made available to an international readership.

Selected articles in French, English, and Spanish will be compiled in a volume to be published in advance and given to Summit participants at no charge on a USB key.

All authors who submit articles will be eligible for a 15% discount on Summit registration fees. Researchers whose article has been selected and who wish to attend the event will receive a 40% discount.
