If you are interested in submitting a manuscript to Sociological Spectrum please read the following information:
Preparation of Manuscripts
All manuscripts must be typed, double-spaced with 1 inch margins on all sides and following the current American Sociological Review style. Each manuscript should be accompanied by a title page including complete author name(s), affiliation(s), mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail information (for multiple author papers, provide complete information for each author and indicate the corresponding author).
Submitted manuscripts will undergo an editorial screening and peer review by anonymous referees. All manuscripts submitted to Sociological Spectrum from those serving as Board Members or Associate Editors of the journal undergo the same blind review process as do those submitted by other individuals. In addition, any manuscript submitted for review authored or co-authored by the Editor-in-Chief is handled by an independent Special Editor who coordinates a review process and makes the final decision as to the suitability of the manuscript(s) for publication in Sociological Spectrum. Authors should avoid placing any form of identification either on the body of the manuscript or on the required abstract of 100 words or less. Manuscripts that do not conform to these requirements will be returned to the authors for correction and will delay the review process.
Submission of Manuscripts:
The manuscript should be submitted to the editor via email attachment in MS Word format AND pdf. We no longer require paper copies or submissions on disc. All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become property of the publisher.
Transfer of Copyright: Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material from other sources and are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of copyright to the publisher. This form will be provided by the editorial office.
