**Call for Papers** The Sheffield Student Journal for Sociology

Date - Monday, 4th December 2017 (12:00 am)

**Call for Papers and Reviewers ** 

The Sheffield Student Journal for Sociology (SSJS) is an academic, peer-reviewed student journal. We publish student led research which contributes to theory and knowledge within sociological studies. Our aim is to showcase contributions to research from across the student body and to give students the opportunity to publish and disseminate their work. We welcome papers from students of all levels, and whilst we are based within sociology we also welcome submissions from other disciplines. In Autumn 2017, we published our first edition ‘Social Issues’ available here.

Our second edition ‘Communities’ is being published in Autumn 2018. We are issuing a call for papers that contribute to this theme. We welcome submissions from undergraduate students, masters’ students and PhD students. We accept a variety of submissions, ranging in length from 2000 – 5000 words. For more information on the types of submissions we accept please check out our website here.

To submit an abstract, email ssj.sociology@gmail.com a word document with:
your name, your institution, your level of study, type of paper, your proposed paper title and an abstract (maximum 250 words). Information and guidance on submitting an abstract and publishing with SSJS is available here. Please read this prior to submitting an abstract. The deadline for abstracts is Monday the 4th of December 2017. If accepted, full papers will be due by the 5th of February 2018.

We are also looking for students to join our team of peer reviewers. We will provide guidance on how to peer review, no previous experience is necessary.
