Call for Proposals for Special Issue 2021

Deadline: 11 October 2019

Submission Guidelines

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.

We encourage sociologists to submit proposals to develop and edit special issues within their field of expertise.  Note, those who have previously submitted an expression of interest are welcome to submit again for this call. 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;
    • new technologies and health, illness and healthcare;
    • the interplay between sexualities, gender and health; and
    • social precarity and health

Online and print publication of the special issue will be in March 2021.  To allow time for peer reviews and revisions to be completed, special issue authors need to work to a deadline for initial manuscript submission in late May 2020, with final copy by early December 2020.

Please submit expressions of interest to guest edit the January 2021 Special Issue to Professor Karen Willis and Associate Professor Sarah MacLean by October 11, 2019 to

If you have any questions or you would like to discuss your ideas please contact Professor Karen Willis or Associate Professor Sarah MacLean via
