Call for Papers from ASA in Montreal: Due October 1, 2017

For the 11th year, the journal ICS will publish a special issue in cooperation with CITAMS. It will be published speedily – before the next ASA meeting in August 2018.

Eligible papers are those presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association, including roundtables, and the Media Pre-Conference in Montreal, CA. Presenters have more than a month to polish up your presentations, as the full papers are not due until October 1, 2017 – firm deadline.

The special issue welcomes papers that focus on any facet of media, technology, communication, information, or related topics. This is a great opportunity to have papers read by an interested audience, and the acceptance rate is quite good.

ICS has enabled ‘green open access,’ meaning that authors may post pre-print versions of their paper on their own website, in an institutional repository or in a subject repository, such as the SocARXIV.

Please submit manuscripts for consideration through ScholarOne, available at:
http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rics. If you do not have an account, you will need to create one. Also, be sure to check the box for “Special Issue” and indicate “CITAMS” in it, so that it will be routed appropriately.

All accepted manuscripts must respect a word limit of 6,000-8,000 words (depending on the number of submissions accepted) and conform to the journal’s submission guidelines.

Full papers due: October 1, 2017
First round of reviews back to authors: December 1, 2017
Final decisions: March 1, 2018
