Health Sociology Review: Call for Proposals for Special Issue 2020


Reading Time: 1 minute


Health Sociology Review (HSR) is an international peer-reviewed journal, which publishes high quality conceptual and empirical research in the sociology of health, illness and medicine. Published three times per year, the journal prioritises original research papers. Each year the journal publishes a special issue on a matter of central importance to health sociology and related fields, edited by guest editors.

The incoming editors of HSR encourage sociologists to submit proposals to develop and edit special issues within their field of expertise.

We particularly welcome proposals for special issues with a focus including, but not limited to, indigeneity; new and emerging issues in the sociology of health and illness (including novel theoretical frameworks); impacts of technology on health and illness; and the interplay between sexualities, gender and health.

Please note, to allow time for the revisions to be completed, special issue authors need to work to a deadline for manuscript submission in late-February 2020, with final copy by August 2020. Online publication of the special issue would be in October 2020.

Please submit expressions of interest to guest edit the October 2020 Special Issue to Professor Karen Willis and Associate Professor Sarah MacLean by 25 March 2019 to hsr@tasa.org.au.

If you have any questions or you would like to discuss your ideas please contact Professor Karen Willis or Associate Professor Sarah MacLean: hsr@tasa.org.au.
