Thank you for your interest in writing a Guest Post! We are excited about featuring a variety of voices on Sociological Images.
Who Can Guest Post? We’re happy to look at short proposals or completed posts from scholars, instructors, and graduate students in sociology or related fields. We will also consider Guest Posts from non-academics.
What Should Posts Look Like? Sociological Images aims to keep sociology accessible and enjoyable. Accordingly, posts for the site need to be sociological, short and concise (generally between 100 and 500 words), and illustrated (with a graph, figure, photograph, advertisement, video clip, or other visual), with a limited number of take home points (between one and three is ideal).
How Are Comments on My Post Moderated? Please be aware that comments are only very lightly moderated. Sometimes unpopular or unsubstantiated opinions will be expressed and it may be distressing to notice that your post has facilitated a conversation you don’t like. Because our primary goal is to stimulate the most productive discussion possible, and unpopular and fallacious comments often trigger excellent responses, we delete only comments that are hateful or threatening toward other commenters or that are mean-spirited toward particular social groups. We close comments only in extremely rare circumstances and typically only for a 24-hour window.
What is the Process? In terms of process, submitting to Sociological Images is similar to submitting to an academic journal. Gwen and Lisa, the editors, will ensure that the post is of proper quality and, if needed, help you work it into a form suitable for the venue and our audience.
Thank you again for your interest in making Sociological Images as fascinating as sociology itself!
