This journal participates in the Wiley Sociology and Social Welfare Publishing Network. This exciting collaboration between a number of high quality journals simplifies and speeds up the publication process, helping authors find a home for their research. At the Editors’ judgement, suitable papers not accepted by one journal may be recommended for referral to another journal(s) in the network. Authors decide whether to accept the referral, with the option to transfer their paper with or without revisions. Once the referral is accepted, submission happens automatically, along with any previous reviewer reports, thereby relieving pressure on the peer review process. While a transfer does not guarantee acceptance, it is more likely to lead to a successful outcome for authors by helping them to find a route to publication quickly and easily.
Committing Sociology Section
The Committing Sociology section of the journal will publish short, timely pieces, addressing current debates, social concerns, and recent publications in sociology and its sub-fields. We encourage the following:
* Review essays of three or four books on a related topic
* Symposia consisting of a series of short articles discussing and debating emerging, central, or controversial issues in a specific sociological subfield. We are especially interested in symposia generated by the existing CSA research clusters.
* Other short pieces touching on controversies or emerging issues in the discipline.
Submissions can be made by individuals or groups (symposia, debates). If you have an idea for a Committing Sociology piece, please contact the Journal Editors.
