Publications Opportunities

Sociological Futures - Call for Book Proposals

Sociological Futures is the BSA’s research monograph series and has published a wealth of titles on significant topics of sociological enquiry such as climate change, food, social mobility and sociological theory. We are interested in more proposals at any time and invite all scholars to get in touch with their book ideas.

The series offers a means to reach a wider audience and acts as an established publishing outlet for sociologists at all career and publishing stages, from the well-established to emerging sociologists from all parts of the world. The series appeals to students, offering a selection of key texts on a focussed topic in one place as well as being attractive to scholars looking for longer form research on classic and emerging sociological themes. We accept proposals at any time: there is no deadline. Interested?  Find out more>

Book Reviewing

Sociology and Work, Employment and Society have vital and vibrant review sections in every issue of the journal.

Both journals publish a variety of types of reviews: 

  • single book reviews (800 words)
  • joint book reviews (2 books on a related theme) (1,500-2,000 words)
  • review essays (substantial commentaries on a theme, frequently multiple books) (2,500-4,000 words)
  • review symposia (multiple reviewers for 1 book) (800-1,000 words)

Both journals are especially interested in review essays.  These types of reviews offer a more substantial publication for the writer and also a greater contribution to the academic record.

To review for Sociology, contact the Reviews Editor, about any potential reviews.

To review for WES, please email the Reviews Editors with details of the book(s) you would like to review. 

Note to publishers: Please do not send unsolicited review copies to the BSA office as we are unable to pass them on to reviewers or editors.

Sociology

  • Special Issue:  Sociologies of the Future and the Future of Sociology
    The Special Issue aims to bridge this ‘gap’ between implicit sociological engagement in and sociological distancing from the future. It has two key starting points. First, that sociological theories, methods and empirical research have a great deal to offer in understanding how futures are claimed, enacted and made. And second, that a concerted effort is required to excavate, articulate and implement this promise. In contributing to this effort, this Special Issue seeks to draw together a range of theoretical, methodological and empirical resources that, collectively, will offer a powerful intervention for sociological futures thinking and futures making.  Deadline for submissions:  1 December 2021.  Read the full Call for Papers>
