October 2022 – Islamophobia, Informal Work And Global Health.

Welcome to the October Pluto Journals newsletter! This month we want to share with you some of the latest highlights and best practice to cultivate your curiosity and inspire collaboration in these difficult days. Our journals continue to research and  explore the most critical contemporary issues. Over the year we intend to mention all of our journals, if you have an issue or an event you would like us to hghlight please get in touch.
Islamophobia Studies Journal is an interdisciplinary and multilingual academic journal that encourages submissions that theorise the historical, political, economic, and cultural phenomenon of Islamophobia in relation to the construction, representation, and articulation of “Otherness.” From the Centre of Race and Gender at Berkeley, Volume 7, Issue 1 includes articles that explore Islamophobia in Turkey, China, France and India. It also has an article that considers Islamophobia and its relationship with antisemitism in the context of the radical European right’s recent shift towards pro-Israel positions, and away from its traditional antisemitism.
Work Organisation Labour & Globalisation Volume 16, Issue 2 includes articles on gender inequality in the labour market in Ukraine, organising informal quarry workers in Ghana, informal work in Brazil and Columbia, language and discourse and the recruitment of foreign nurses in the UK.

World Review of Political Economy Volume 13, Issue 3 also looks at Global Health Policy (GHPs). The Covid-19 pandemic challenged GHPs systems leading to calls for “decolonisation” of global health. The author offers a radically different perspective based on the role of transnational capital, in extracting wealth from the economies of low and middle-income countries, as a means to shaping public health policy and practice. 

Congratulations to Policy Perspectives which has been approved and included in the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals. It has been categorised as a Scientific Journal in Level 1.

Increasing Accessibility: We are delighted to announce that all new issues of our journals will be published on ScienceOpen in HTML to make them more accessible to people using assistive technology such as screen reading software.  It does mean that alternative text needs to be supplied 

for all figures in the new journal issues. This alternative text (alt-text) must describe the content of the figure in enough detail to give the end user an understanding of what information the figure contains, whether it is a graph, chart or photo.  Here is a useful guide to writing good alt-text


All Pluto Journals titles are available here on ScienceOpen
