The profit from the sale of the Sociological Review Journal is donated to the Sociological Review Foundation, a registered charity whose purpose is to advance the education of the public on the subject of sociology and related disciplines. As part of our charitable activities we carry out some of the following:
Supporting Early Career Researchers
We are proud to support early career researchers, both inside and outside of the university environment. We offer conference bursaries for unfunded PhD and postdoctoral researchers and organise events for ECRs, including our annual writing retreat. Early career researchers are regularly appointed to the Sociological Review editorial board where they receive training on refereeing and other skills under the mentorship of an experienced editor.

The Sociological Review Fellowship
The Sociological Review has a historic commitment to early career researchers through its fellowship scheme, which is based at the University of Keele. The fellowship provides early career sociologists with the opportunity of spending a year writing their first monograph or converting their PhD into journal articles. Read more.
Lectures, Workshops and Conferences
Each year, the Sociological Review Foundation organises the Sociological Review Annual Lecture as well as workshops and symposia that bring together established and new researchers in the field of sociology and cognate disciplines. We regularly record videos and podcasts at our events and publish these on the Sociological Review Blog. Read more.
The Sociological Review Seminar Series
Each year, we sponsor up to five one-day research seminars in any area of sociology to share and produce imaginative cutting-edge work of sociological and social significance. An important aim of the seminar series is to produce papers that will result in publications of interest to the readership of the Sociological Review. We seek proposals that involve collaborations across institutions and disciplines and connect sociology to wider communities and the arts. Read more.
Board of Trustees
The Sociological Review Foundation is overseen by a board of trustees with a wide variety of experience, skills and background. Read more.
