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 World Congresses and the ISA Forum meetings of the Research Committees and 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.

Current Sociology monograph issues
these 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. All papers are peer-reviewed for scientific merit and international relevance.

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.
