Current Sociology
monograph issues

Current Sociology monograph issues were introduced in 2001, as two extra issues per year of the journal Current Sociology; they highlight themes structuring the discipline in original and novel ways. Each issue has single or joint guest editor(s), and presents a selection of papers reflecting global concerns and critical debates within and outside ISA's Research and National Associational networks and conferences; the papers should include a strong introduction and/or conclusion exploring and developing the theme of the issue.

CS monograph issues are published in English and should include abstracts in French and Spanish.  Each monograph issue is typically of 90,000 words including references; abstracts with translations, contributors list etc. and will therefore be approximately 72,000 words of actual text. Editor(s) may like to have short and long papers to ensure the maximum word length as mentioned above.

For the initial refereeing process, proposals should contain:

  • Brief Synopsis
    (1000-2000 words) describing the main features of the book. A chapter by chapter synopsis is preferable.
  • Table of Contents
    Please also provide the names and affiliations of the contributors.
  • Competing Titles
    Please list those books currently in print which could be competing with yours.

All monograph proposals are refereed by the Editorial Board (made up of ISA Research Committee Presidents and National Association EC Members) and the series editor. Editor/s will be informed within three months of the outcome of the refereeing process.

The final manuscript will be accepted on the basis of a successful review by experts in the field. In order to ensure that the monograph issue has rigour and scientific quality of high order, we would encourage editors to take the assistance of experts in assessing the papers that they are inviting and submitting the final manuscript for review.

Proposals should be submitted to:
