To submit an abstract, email ssj.sociology@gmail.com a word document with:

Please read this prior to submitting an abstract. The extended deadline for abstracts is Friday 11th January 2019. If accepted, full papers will be due by the 22nd March 2019.

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. You can read Edition 2 ‘Communities’ here.
