Special issues

The Sociological Review has a proud tradition of publishing Special Issues. These issues of the journal are collections of papers that together provide a sustained discussion of a specific area, provide multiple insights into a given topic, or explore the complexities of a particular phenomenon.

In light of our Manifesto, The Sociological Review is particularly interested in encouraging Special Issues that involve collaboration across relevant disciplines (eg sociology, anthropology, geography), that include contributions from early career scholars and scholars beyond global north academic institutions, and on topics that are international in scope. Recent Special Issues have addressed class and elites, community and social change, and the politics of imagination.

To propose a special issue, please see our guidelines on how to submit a proposal.
