The Graduate Journal of Social Science is pleased to announce its first call for papers.
Deadline for submission is the 1st of May, 2003. For information on submission, check www.gjsocialscience.org.
The GJSS welcomes the submission of articles, book reviews, comments and feedback by advanced MSc/MA students, PhD students and recently graduated postdoctoral students.
Publications are expected to investigate methodological issues of interdisciplinary relevance in social science. Social science methodology is understood to encompass all analytic, theoretical, interpretive, instrumental and physical tools used for the acquisition of empirical data in research.
Contributors can draw upon quantitative issues (e.g. the choice of measurement indicators, the production and use of statistics, the relevance of quantitative data gathered by the natural sciences) and qualitative ones (including for instance the use of narrative and discourse analysis; the meaning, practice and value of objectivity in field work and interpretation; the role of the social scientist as subject of the investigation and bearer/creator of knowledge). Essays will also be welcomed regarding the interplay between knowledge production/ interpretation and methodology, the possibility of maintaining a distinction between normative and descriptive research and the (possibility/impossibility of) interaction between natural and social science methodologies.
