Information For Authors

Interested in submitting to this journal? We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process.

If you are interested in submitting an academic article (versus a creative/alternative Liminal Grounds submission), please review past article publications before doing so and make sure to format your paper accordingly. We approach the publication of academic articles as a pedagogical process and include a strong mentorship component. Accordingly, senior editors provide extensive support and feedback to contributing authors.

To both alleviate the workload of our editors, all of whom are graduate students, as well as reduce engagement time for our readers, New Sociology only publishes a few academic articles per issue, if at all, in conjunction with the alternative and creative pieces submitted to our Liminal Grounds section. We prioritize social justice contributions from Black, Indigenous, Brown, Asian, and otherwise non-white creatives and under/graduate students, as well as trans, femme, queer, and disabled authors. We discourage undergraduate students from submitting academic articles to our journal but encourage them to consider submitting to our Liminal Grounds section. We also ask authors not submit their RRPs or excerpts from either their Undergraduate or Master’s thesis for publication. Lastly, given the strong mentorship and educational aspect, we try to preserve the few article publication spots for non-white graduate students, with top priority going to Black and Indigenous contributors.
