Social Thought and Research (STAR) is an annual peer reviewed journal edited by graduate students at the University of Kansas. We have published papers on a range of subjects, including the research of leading social thinkers. Our journal seeks to publish current issues in sociological studies as well as interdisciplinary, social science-related research. Students and faculty from departments outside the discipline of sociology (such as women’s studies, political science, anthropology, history, and American studies) are also encouraged to submit articles. Additionally, papers covering other topics of sociological interest are also invited.
Having publications is paramount to post-graduate success. Our journal offers great exposure and is now available electronically in a searchable format on KU ScholarWorks, an open-source, electronic database maintained by the University of Kansas that allows published authors to track “hits” on and downloads of their articles. In addition, STAR is published in Proquest's Social Science Journals, listed in EBSCO’s database, included in Sociological Abstracts with a direct link to KU Scholar Works, and will soon be available through JSTOR.
For Volume 33, in connection with Lane Kenworthy’s 2011 Carroll Clark Lectureship at the University of Kansas, entitled “Should We Worry about Inequality,” we especially invite work that explores the broad themes of Social Inequality, Economic Sociology, and Comparative-Historical Sociology. STAR also invites work that explores other substantive topics, as well as book reviews, research notes, teaching articles, critical literature reviews (that contribute to scholarship), and other original research.
One $100 award will be given to the authors of the first place submission for Volume 33.
While submissions are accepted at any time, the deadline for submissions for Volume 33 is June 15, 2012. Submissions should include the following:
1. Cover letter and author contact information, including current e-mail address.
2. Cover page that lists the title of your submission, keywords, and a 200 word abstract.
3. Microsoft Word compatible electronic version of your submission sent as an email attachment to email@example.com.
