The Chicago Journal of Sociology is a student-led publication founded and advised by Professor James Evans and supported by the University Of Chicago Department of Sociology.  Our mission is to showcase excellent undergraduate work in the social sciences, 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 topics of sociological interest. 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 3 (2017) is Jaehoon (Jae) Ahn. Please contact Jae directly for information about how to join the editorial team.
