Please note, the deadline for this year has now passed. The next call for monographs will be announced in 2021.
Deadline extended – 15th June 2020
We are looking to commission two monographs to be published in March and July 2022 respectively.
The monograph series is an integral part of the journal. It publishes themed collections of articles of approximately 80,000-100,000 words (around 256 pages). These appear simultaneously as Special Issues of the journal.
Dedicated to showcasing the very best and most innovative sociologically informed work, and to promoting emerging as well as established academics, the series has for over 50 years produced intellectually stimulating, coherent volumes of the highest quality. The books are available to buy separately, but are also included as part The Sociological Review journal subscription price.
We are particularly interested in publishing monographs which push at the boundaries of sociology and related disciplines – that ‘undiscipline’ the social sciences – and those which reinvigorate and renew established aspects of international sociological traditions.
Proposals should be no more than seven pages long (double spaced, Times, 12pt font) and should include names and details of editors and contributors, rationale for and aims of the collection, provisional titles and abstracts of papers, an account of the appeal of the collection to readers of The Sociological Review, and marketing justification for the collection (e.g. distinctiveness of collection in relation to existing publications). Proposals should also ensure that they fit with the general remit and approach that is sketched out in our manifesto.
All articles published within the monographs are fully refereed and have dual status as journal articles; they carry an article DOI and are included in the subscription to The Sociological Review as well as being sold separately as books.
Full proposals and informal enquiries should be submitted to Prof. Steven Brown, Monograph Series Editor by email firstname.lastname@example.org
