Young Sociology

Studia Socjologiczne provides an online publication venue for young sociologists. We invite all sociologists at the early stages of their career, including graduate and PhD students, to share the results of their research projects as well as to publicize their theoretical essays.

The Young Sociology section does not set any formal conditions: submitted contributions could be overviews of BA and MA theses, analyses made during PhD research, as well as other genres. The only exception is the reviews: these will be published only in the printed version of the journal, according to the established procedure.

We are not able to review the texts submitted for the “Young Sociology” section in the same way we review the materials published in the paper version of the journal. We therefore need to establish the criteria for eligibility of such work for online publication.

The eligibility criteria:

Besides the author, each text has to have a person who endorses it (supervisor, principal investigator, professor etc).

The person who endorses the text is responsible for its originality, quality and accurateness of the analysis; the name of this person is visible alongside the name of the author(s).

The text is submitted in pdf format and follows the style of Studia Socjologiczne. The journal editors are not responsible for editing the text. If the text does not meet the requirements of the journal, it will not be published online.

The editors of Studia Socjologiczne make the decision regarding the acceptance of the text for online publication. This decision is final.

The text that is published online is ascribed to a particular paper issue of the journal. It is mentioned in this paper issue table of contents (in the separate section “Internet Publications”). The text is available online in the tab “Young Sociology” for a three month period. Afterwards, the full text is transferred to the archive where it can be downloaded at all times.

The following technical requirements apply:

Times New Roman 12 font;  1,5 spacing; 25 mm margins on each side of a page; text should be aligned to both left and right margin (justified); page numbers should be placed in the right bottom corner of the page; the text length is from minimum 10 pages to maximum 25 pages; the main title should be provided in bold font and aligned at the centre; all other titles should be aligned to the left and given in bold font with an additional space before it. Each paragraph should start with an indent. Tables, figures and bibliography should be prepared in accordance with the journal style and should be provided at the end of the text. The notes should be avoided but if they appear they should be made as footnotes at the end of the text (before bibliography). The title of the text should be given in CAPITAL LETTERS and aligned to the centre, the remaining titles should be aligned to the left and given in bold font with an additional space before it.

In a separate attachment addressed to the journal (redakcja@studiasocjologiczne.pl) author(s) should send a short biographic note, email addresses of the authors and a short statement of agreement for their work to be published on-line at the web-site of Studia Socjologiczne
