The Chicago Journal of Sociology is a student-led publication founded in 2014 by Professor James Evans and supported by the University Of Chicago Department of Sociology. Our mission is to showcase excellent undergraduate work in sociology, while giving student editors experience turning BA theses of exceptional quality into published academic articles. The Chicago Journal of Sociology is especially interested in publishing papers that offer well formulated arguments pertaining to issues local to Chicago. We value clear, straightforward prose, careful citation, and a wide range of methodological approaches, both quantitative and qualitative. Papers should be under 9,500 words, excluding notes, references, tables, and figures.


The Executive Editor of Volume 5 (2017) is Marissa Combs. Please contact Marissa directly for information regarding submissions or about how to join the editorial staff.
