Call for Submissions: Journal of Sociology – Special Edition 2020

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 in guest editing a Special Edition of the Journal. Special Editions may address any sociological theme which is likely to be of interest to the Journal 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, 2019 and publication will be in March 2020.

Please submit expressions of interest of no more than 3000 words in length to Kate Huppatz and Steven Matthewman by Monday 9th July, 2018. Expressions of interest should include the following information:

a)  Contact details and brief biography for each Guest Editor
