Sociology between the Gaps: Forgotten and Neglected Topics (SBG) is an innovative, peer-reviewed, open-access, cross-disciplinary, independent online journal published in English. This journal publishes high quality submissions that fall into sociological work that may be viewed by some as outside mainstream sociological topics; hence the full journal title: Sociology between the Gaps: Forgotten and Neglected Topics. SBG also aims to reflect the intersections of social class, race, gender, age and cross-disciplinary views by encouraging authors to submit work on topics that cross disciplinary boundaries and/or areas of specialization but effectively link disciplines to provide a multi-disciplinary perspective on the topics and issues addressed.

This not-for-profit journal is published electronically in collaboration with Digital Projects & Metadata at Providence College's Phillips Memorial Library + Commons. The Editor-In-Chief is grateful to the library staff that help make this publication possible.

The Editorial Board of SBG seeks original empirical, theoretical, applied, and critical review papers that add to the existing body of knowledge in sociology. The Editorial Board is also interested in publishing point of view essays, book and film reviews, and other entries that fit with the mission of SBG. Papers on themes addressed in Volumes 1 (adoption in international perspective), 2 (creating livable communities in diverse societies, and 3 (cultural lag in post-modern society) are also encouraged.

Submissions to each currently open volume of SBG will be accepted through December 1st. Final drafts of accepted submissions will be published on an on-going basis. Depending on the number of publishable submissions she receives by the submission deadline, the Editor-in-Chief may choose to close one volume and open a new one
