Journal of Sociology - Carer's Bursary

The editors of the Journal of Sociology are inviting applications from the community of sociological scholars, who are TASA members, for a Carer’s Bursary funded by TASA.

This bursary is in response to a noticeable drop in submissions by authors with caring responsibilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bursary totals $1000 for an author who has experienced disruption to publication outputs during COVID-19.

The funds are intended to contribute to the costs of childcare and research costs.

Applicants must provide a short paragraph outlining the disruption they experienced/are experiencing, what the funding will be used for, what the output will be, when the funding will be used by, an estimated submission date to the Journal of Sociology, and an abstract of 100-150 words in line with the journal guidelines.

Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:
• Application aligns with purpose of bursary
• The quality of the abstract
• The degree of career disruption experienced
• The applicant’s track record relative to opportunity
• All eligibility criteria are met

The successful article will be subject to the usual peer review process. If published, Sage will be approached about releasing the article on open access. Also, the author will be required to share the online version link and a short piece about their article to TASA Admin for promotion.

Please submit applications to Dr Allegra Schermuly, Managing Editor, by Monday 21st June, 2021:
