Sage Studies in International Sociology Books is part of ISA’s well-established SSIS series, started in 1974. It encourages debates of international significance and charts out future trends of sociological importance.
SSIS books identify new areas of scholarship organising the discipline internationally and having global consequences. They include two kinds of publications:
- proceedings of ISA World Congresses, ISA Forums, meetings of the Research Committees and of the National Association Liaison Committee
- Key Texts of World Sociology
The latter is a new initiative that acknowledges and promotes (in English translation) important sociological texts written in other languages, by non Western scholars in various parts of the world since the inception of the discipline in those regions.
SSIS Books can be singly or jointly authored and/or edited and reflect emerging scientific debates currently taking place on these themes in the discipline. Books are generally around 250-350 pages. An Editorial Board of internationally recognised eminent sociologists reviews the initial proposal, which should include a statement of interest, the intended market for the book, any competitor volumes and its sales potential. Authors and editors are encouraged to institute their own peer review processes to ensure high quality of product. The final manuscript will be peer reviewed in consultation with Sage.
