The Journal of Social Transformation (JST) is a new, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal published twice a year by the School of Social Sciences of the Ateneo de Manila University. JST seeks articles that examine current and emerging political, cultural, and economic formations, particularly those that involve postcolonial and Asian contexts. Grounded in a concern for justice, broadly conceived, JST is committed to publishing work that addresses the production of new inequalities, forms of violence, and modes of struggle and resistance. We are especially interested in research that investigates transformations brought on by new technologies, media forms and institutional arrangements; contemporary migrations and mobilities; local and global geographies; alternative conceptions of the body and the environment; and class, racial, gender, and sexual orders. JST welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions from all fields in the social and cultural sciences.
Submissions: Manuscripts should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as an electronic attachment in Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format. Articles should not exceed 10,000 words in length. All lines should be double-spaced. Author names, affiliations, contact information, and an abstract of 150-200 words should be provided in a separate title page. References to an author's own works must be made in a manner that does not compromise anonymity. JST also accepts photo essays and book reviews. Contact the editor for review proposals and inquiries. JST will be published online and in print.
Style: JST uses the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition. Authors should prepare manuscripts using endnotes, without a bibliography. The first citation to a work should be a full citation. Subsequent citations of the same work should be shortened (last name, short title, page number).
Deadline: JST accepts submissions on a rolling basis. However, papers should be submitted by October 15, 2011 in order to be considered for the second issue.
