Special Edition: Racism in America
The Special Edition of the Journal of Social Change, Racism in America
We seek manuscript submissions of primary research, case studies, scholarly literature review essay submissions, professional application essays, book reviews, teaching practices, and op-ed submissions that analyze the social effects of systemic racism in America. The journal utilizes a double-blind peer-review process and is an open access publication.
Think creatively and broadly. The following is a simple list of examples:
Special consideration is given to submissions that provide a historical review of a topic and clear linkages to systemic racism and recommendations for positive social change. Submissions from all disciplines and multidisciplinary manuscripts are welcome. Selected articles will be published in a special online edition and printed formats.
The Journal of Social Change promotes contributions to social change that improves the human condition and moves people, groups, organizations, cultures, and society toward a more positive future.
The journal will accept submissions from August 1, 2020 – August 1, 2021. Accepted articles are immediately published electronically and will be included in a bound edition at the conclusion of the special edition project.
