Call for Special Issues, Social Analysis
CALL FOR SPECIAL ISSUES - Deadline Friday 15 January 2021
Social Analysis publishes up to two Special Issues per year. These are selected through an annual Call for Special Issue Proposals
Special Issue proposals should be up to 2,000 words and include (a) a brief description of the theme and focus, including an explanation of the rationale for its selection of articles; (b) an account of its contribution to the existing literature; (c) an explanation of how the Special Issue addresses the journal’s Aims and Scope; (d) abstracts of no longer than 125 words for each article, indicating expected word length (including endnotes and references); (e) an indication of the state of the manuscript at the time of proposal (e.g., whether drafts of the articles are already available, whether the introduction has been written, whether an afterword is pending).
Please note that Special Issues can have a total word count of no more than 66,000 words (including endnotes and references). So, including the introduction, this would typically include 8 articles of up to 8,000 words each, or 9 to 10 substantially shorter articles.
