About SBG4: Open-Topic Submissions
The Editorial Board of Sociology between the Gaps is seeking submissions on forgotten, neglected, or unexplored topics or aspects of topics within sociology. Papers on themes addressed in Volumes 1-3 are also encouraged. Submitting authors are expected to review and follow SBG Manuscript Guidelines and to make clear how their paper fits within the mission of SBG.
SBG4 will also be introducing a blog, which will be a continuation of the Etcetera section which first appeared in Volumes 2 and 3.
Submissions to SBG4 and the blog will be evaluated and published on an on-going basis. Volume 4 will be closed when the Editor-in-Chief decides that sufficient items have been accepted for publication in the volume. Send submissions and questions to Dr. Josephine Ruggiero, Editor-in-Chief at: firstname.lastname@example.org
