Popular Social Science welcomes submissions for our article section as well as reviews, commentaries, and factualities. The articles must be research oriented within the fields of social science (political science, sociology, history, psychology, or social economics) and be of interest for a general audience. Each year has a volume (2012 is volume 1) and each volume has four issues (winter, spring, fall, and summer). All submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscripts should be between 1000-3500 words and should be written in English. The articles should not employ Chicago style references, but rather includede a “for further reading” section at the end. For tips on structure, see previous articles. The article should include an ingress (not an abstract). The submitted articles are subject to an editiorial evaluation based on consultation with experts within the relevant topic.
We accept reviews of relevant books, films, and television series. The length should be between 300-750 words. The review should include a short presentation of the author/director and book (or film, series etc.), a brief summary of the work, as well as the contributer’s evaluation. The submitted reviewes are subject to an editiorial evaluation.
Commentaries concerning relevant topics are also welcome. They should be between 400 and 1000 words. Commentaries are ment to encourage debate, and can be more subjective in style than an article. Commentaries are subject to an editiorial evaluation.
In short, factualities are about things we can learn from social science and employ in our day-to-day life. Such pieces should range from 300-500 words. Factualities are subject to an editorial evaluation.
