Call for Editorial Board Members International Studies in Sociology of Education

International Studies in Sociology of Education

International Studies in Sociology of Education is a highly regarded international journal with a twenty-five year history. International Studies in Sociology of Education is published in English four times annually and has a global reach. The journal addresses historical as well as contemporary sociological debates in education significant to an international audience.

The Executive Editors of the Journal wish to expand the wider Editorial Board.

We are especially keen to further strengthen Editorial Board capacity in the areas of:

  • transnationalism, regionalism, and new market/state formations
  • critical social theory
  • sociologies of childhood and youth
  • inequalities in education
  • education beyond institutions
  • culture, pedagogy and social power
  • mixed methods and ethnographic methodologies
  • the sociology of digital technologies

We also encourage applications from experienced sociologists of education whose substantive areas of expertise are outside these specific topics.

Editorial Board members carry out all the reviewing of submissions to the journal, and on average can expect 3-4 new papers per year (plus, on occasions, revised papers for reconsideration).

There is no payment for this role. Board members receive a hard copy of each issue of the journal and their names and affiliations are listed in the inside cover and on the website. The initial term of affiliation is for two years.

Applicants should be at least three years post-doctorate and/or have at least three publications in refereed journals.

Submission Instructions

Applicants should consult the journal’s webpages to familiarise themselves with the aims and scope of the Journal. Applications should take the form of a one-page letter outlining main areas of substantive and methodological expertise and also any previous refereeing/reviewing experience for peer-reviewed journals. Please also include a brief CV (maximum 2 pages).

Applications should be sent by email to Helen Oliver, Journal Administrator, by 31st January 2019.
