About This Journal
The Journal for Social Thought (JST) was created in 2015 as a peer reviewed academic journal run and maintained by graduate students in the department of sociology at Western University in Canada. This journal focuses on publishing the theoretical and empirical contributions of graduate students, post-docs, academic professionals, and independent scholars in an open access platform. For empirical papers, all research methodologies are accepted and welcome: quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods. The JST provides an opportunity for original works in sociology and related social science disciplines to be disseminated to a wide audience, made up of both academic and non-academic communities. Each issue of the JST focuses on either a general theme or different specialized topics related to today’s relevant sociological questions, which fall underneath the general umbrella of social thought. Our mission is to facilitate the exchange of brilliant and innovative ideas in sociology and other related fields, while especially providing an avenue for graduate students to be involved in the publishing and review processes.
Published electronically each year, this journal covers a variety of sociological themes. While each annual issue will usually focus on one central theme, the inaugural issue will include a breadth of sociological topics. Graduate students and scholars across Canada, as well as those in other countries, are encouraged to submit their work for consideration. All submissions are reviewed to ensure scientific integrity and the advancement of knowledge in the field through strong research practices.
