Sociological Review Monographs
The Sociological Review Monograph Series
Editor, Professor Steve Brown, University of Leicester, UK.
The key international journal The Sociological Review is home to a prestigious Monograph Series that publishes collections of outstanding and original scholarly articles on issues of general sociological interest.*
Dedicated to showcasing the very best and most innovative sociologically informed work, and to promoting emerging as well as established academics, the series has for over fifty years produced intellectually stimulating, coherent volumes of the highest quality. The books are available to buy separately, but are also included as part of The Sociological Review journal subscription price. Older monographs are also available in digital format as part of The Sociological Review archive here

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: 2019 MONOGRAPHS! We are currently seeking proposals for two monographs to be published in January/February 2019 (deadline for completed ms = April 2018).
THE DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS is Friday 9th December 2016. Completed proposals should be emailed to the series editor, Professor Steve Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org. All decisions should be made by the end of January 2017.
Proposals should be no more than seven pages long (double spaced, Times 12 font) and should include names and details of editors and contributors, rationale for and aims of the collection, provisional titles and abstracts of papers, an account of the appeal of the collection to readers of The Sociological Review, and marketing justification for the collection (e.g. distinctiveness of collection in relation to existing publications).
All articles published within the monographs are fully refereed and have dual status as journal articles; they carry an article DOI and are included in the subscription to The Sociological Review as well as being sold separately as books. The usual length of final completed collections (after refereeing decisions have been made) is approximately 80,000-100,000 words. However, it is permissible for the proposed word length of the entire collection to be up to 120,000 words.
*Please quote the article DOI when citing monograph content. Article DOIs can be found alongside the online version of each monograph here
