Canadian Graduate Journal of Sociology and Criminology

Call for Papers (Volume 6 - 2017)

 Due date for submissions: April 15th, 2017 

The Canadian Graduate Journal of Sociology and Criminology (CGJSC) is a peer-reviewed, open-access, bilingual and online journal hosted by the University of Waterloo. Created by doctoral students, it is intended as a journal for graduate students at both the master and doctoral level. CGJSC is committed to working with the academic community at large in order to enhance graduate student development. The aim of CGJSC is to extend intellectual boundaries by providing students with a setting to share new and innovative research ideas and by providing networking opportunities for students across Canada. CGJSC is open to a diverse array of research areas within the disciplines of sociology and criminology where all theories and methods are welcome.

CGJSC is actively seeking submissions of original empirical research for our sixth volume. The scope of CGJSC is purposefully broad in order to offer a diverse range of graduate students the opportunity to submit their research for publication. Examples of acceptable submissions that fall within the journal’s scope are, but not limited to: theory pieces, conceptual pieces, critical analyses, substantive explorations and book reviews. Qualitative, quantitative and mixed methodologies are accepted. We aim to publish insightful and well-written empirical pieces that enrich the collective knowledge within the disciplines of sociology and criminology.

CGJSC welcomes submissions from graduate students involved in research outside of, but related to, the disciplines of sociology and criminology. All fields within the social sciences (ex: Political Science, History, Psychology, Religious Studies, Women’s Studies, Labor Studies, Health Sciences, Economics, Anthropology) are encouraged to submit provided that they demonstrate a direct link to a sociological and/or criminological area of study.

We invite all interested parties to review our mission statement and submission guidelines. Submissions are securely and efficiently processed via our journal management software integrated into our website.
