We welcome blog proposals from under- and postgraduate sociology students coming from all over the world. We recognise that the production of sociological knowledge is still affected by hierarchies of power that structure along the lines of race, gender and class among others. In line with the journal mission to encourage the diversity of its authors’ positionalities, we particularly welcome submissions from members of groups that are still under-represented and minoritarian in the academic production of knowledge.
If you have an idea for a blog post, please get in touch with our Blog Editors by sending an email at email@example.com with a brief outline; please, remember to add “Blog Proposal” as your email subject. Our Blog Editors will get back to you in a week to give you feedback and discuss possible deadlines. It’s always better to get in touch first to discuss your ideas before writing the whole post.
Blog posts should be a minimum of 700 words and a maximum of around 1,500 words. Please send your draft as an attached Word document at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Blog Article Draft”.
Blog posts should be fully referenced, either as links throughout the article or citations at the end (please use APA referencing style). Links should direct readers to more detailed reports or other pieces of research, news items or other blog posts – please insert a hyperlink at the relevant point of your argument that you’d like to reference.
We encourage the use of images, charts and figures. Graphs and charts are preferable to tables, as they are easier for readers to interpret quickly. In all cases, please send us the raw data of your chart, table, or figure in Excel format, clearly labelled. Images must not breach copyright. Please supply the editor with your own images, if relevant. The editor will find a suitable image to accompany the blog post where necessary.
We like to give our contributors full attribution. Please send us a three to four line biographical note, detailing your academic position and research interests to accompany your post.
Submitted articles will be reviewed by our Blog Editors within one week. The article will be edited to enhance its readability, bearing the blog’s wider audience in mind. These edits may include but are not limited to:
- Shortening of text if the article is above our stated 1500 word limit
- The addition of a title to sum up the post’s main themes
- The addition of a short introductory paragraph outlining the article’s main arguments and findings, and any relevant background information for readers.
