Call for Monograph Proposals

Once a year, The Sociological Review accepts proposals for the Monograph Series. Each year two monographs are commissioned for publication in March and July respectively, approximately two years after commissioning.

The monograph series is an integral part of the journal. It publishes themed collections of articles of approximately approximately 80,000-100,000 words (around 256 pages).

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.

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).

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.

Proposals are normally submitted directly to Prof. Steven Brown, Monograph Series Editor by email. If you have any question about how the call works, or when it will be open again, please email him at

The deadline for submissions this year was Friday March 17th 2017
