The Birmingham Journal for Europe
The Birmingham Journal for Europe (BJfE) is a postgraduate publication peer-reviewed by academics in relevant disciplines at the University of Birmingham. The editorial process is run by Birmingham postgraduate students overseen by the GCfE Co-Chair for the Journal. All papers published within the journal are peer-reviewed by a relevant member of academic staff at the University of Birmingham to ensure quality and suitability for publication.

In 2014 the GCfE publications committee opted to produce a collection of conference proceedings with Cambridge Scholars Publishing and suspended the journal for 2014/2015. We are now re-launching our journal call and for this and subsequent issue we are opening the Birmingham Journal for Europe to move beyond conference theme issues to include all relevant research on, in or about Europe.
Our 2015/16 Call for Papers which is open until 30 November 2015 and can be found here: BJfE 2015-16 cfp

Cambridge Scholars Publishing book – Travelling Europe: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Place and Space
In 2014 the GCfE publications committee decided to produce a collection of conference proceedings on the theme of their 8th annual conference, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2015. The collection consisted of papers accepted for presentation at the 8th annual conference, and was collected and edited by the BJfE publications team. Gail Mobley, the Co-Chair Publications for 2013/2014, was the chief editor for this collection and responsible for the assembly and formatting of the collection. Zainab Naqvi was the second editor who assisted Gail with the final proofreading. Other editing and formatting tasks were completed by Enrico Vanino, Marine Poirier, Daria Neagu and Ivor Bolton.
The collection is now available online here: http://www.cambridgescholars.com/travelling-europe
