From: TASA



Health Sociology Review

Health Sociology Review

Call for proposals for Special Issue by Guest Editors
Issue 1, 2023

Dear ~~first_name~~, 
 
Health Sociology Review (HSR) is an international peer-reviewed journal, which publishes high quality conceptual and empirical research in the sociology of health, illness and medicine. Published three times per year, the journal prioritises original research papers. Each year the journal publishes a special issue on a matter of central importance to health sociology and related fields, edited by guest editors. More information about the journal is available at: https://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&journalCode=rhsr20 

The Editors of HSR encourage sociologists to submit proposals to develop and edit special issues within their field of expertise. We particularly welcome proposals for special issues with a focus on new and emerging issues in the sociology of health and illness (for example, climate change) including novel theoretical frameworks and/or methodologies.

Please note, to allow time for the reviews to be received and revisions to be completed, special issue authors need to work to a deadline for manuscript submission in late-March 2022, with final copy by end of October, 2022.

Please submit expressions of interest to guest edit the February 2023 Special Issue (see further down for the guidelines) to Professor Karen Willis and Associate Professor Sarah MacLean by 16th April, 2021 to hsr@tasa.org.au.

If you have any questions or you would like to discuss your ideas please contact Professor Karen Willis or Associate Professor Sarah MacLean via hsr@tasa.org.au.

Guidelines for Guest Editors

Papers featured in special issues 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 either on the basis of invitation or via a general ‘call for papers’.

Proposals for guest edited issues of Health Sociology Review should address the following:
 
1. Contact details and brief biography for each guest editor;
 
2. Sociological theme. This should be a 300-word summary of major ideas and themes;
 
3. Identification of publication strategy. This should outline international contacts, and key researchers in the field that you will contact requesting they advertise the Special issue/and or submit papers;
 
4. Division of labour of guest editorial team: outline of lead editor, who will write editorial, handling of papers and referee process;
 
 5. If your proposal for a guest edited issue is accepted a one-page ‘call for papers’ flyer will be required; and
 
 6. Note: if guest editors would like to submit a refereed paper for publication in the issue, they must follow the Committee of Publication Ethics’ Codes of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for journal editors when assessing own papers for publication in the special issue.

Special Issue proposals will be reviewed by the editorial board. One member of the editorial team works with guest editors.

Health Sociology Review is an international peer-reviewed journal, which publishes high quality conceptual and empirical research in the sociology of health, illness and medicine.

Published three times per year, the journal prioritises original research papers, papers that advance theory and methodology in the field of health sociology and special issues on matters of central importance to health sociology and related fields.

Review articles are published upon occasion, but must extend conceptual understanding in health sociology, not just review what is known about a particular topic.
