The Journal of Sociology
is an international journal published four times a year by Sage. Each year the Editors invite expressions of interest from the international community of sociological scholars to guest edit a Special Edition of the Journal. Special Editions may address any sociological theme that is likely to be of interest to the Journal’s readership.
Papers featured in special editions are subject to the normal process of peer review. Selection of papers and coordination of the peer review process will be the responsibility of the Guest Editors. Papers may be selected via invitation or a general ‘call for papers’ (organised by the guest editors). Final copy for this special edition is due on the third of September, 2021 and publication will be in March 2022.
Please submit expressions of interest of no more than 3000 words in length to Kate Huppatz and Steven Matthewman by Monday 22nd June, 2020
. Expressions of interest should include the following information:
a) Contact details and brief biography for each Guest Editor
b) 300 word summary of the special edition theme, including rationale, aims and objectives, and significance of contribution to contemporary sociological thinking and research.
c) An indicative list of authors and papers to be featured in the special edition
