Proposals are invited for the 27th volume in the monograph series to be published by the Sociology of Health and Illness, in conjunction with Wiley-Blackwell.
The monograph will be up to 85,000 words in length comprising up to 12 peer-reviewed papers and will appear both as a special issue of the journal and in book form. The planned publication date is December 2020 for online publication, and January 2021 for the print issue. Agreed proofs will appear online prior to the print issue.
The proposal should contain the following elements:
- Justification of the proposed topic in terms of its academic merit, how it fits into the monograph series and how links between medical sociology and other substantive areas will be established.
- A statement of 3 or 4 themes that might be addressed and how these can be broken down into sub-themes.
- Consideration of the proposal’s appeal to:
- regular readers of the journal and to readers who might buy it as a book;
- medical sociologists and to readers from sister disciplines;
- sociologists from Europe, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world where the sociology of health and illness is developing as a discipline.
- Competitor publications should be noted and the distinctiveness of the proposal explained in relation to any such competition.
- An account of how the call for papers would be advertised to reach a range of contributors to include junior and well-established authors and an international range of contributors.
- A list of potential contributors who might be approached.
- Brief indication of a proposed publication launch event.
- A short biographical note about the proposed editors.
The proposal, including the short biographies, should be no more than 2,000 words in total.
Proposals can be discussed informally with the Monograph Editor Ian Rees Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) before submitting the final document.
