UCSC Journal of International Society and Culture
We are looking for articles which have a global relevance and impact communities across the world. The articles will be limited to issues and concepts within the realm of human control or the human ability to affect change upon them. So rather than looking at a study of the impacts of climate change on a certain plant, instead a preferred article would be investigating the impact an abundance or extinction of the plant might have on a human population or society. We would like to publish articles about issues which humanity can impact which affect the global community or a transnational one. The articles we seek should contain an insightful analysis of a subject in the previously defined domain. Additionally, it would be preferred if they contain explicit or even implicit suggestions for addressing a troubling issue or expanding an effective system or idea. Submissions should be cited in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style 17th Edition.
Please fill out this form to submit your paper.
Upon receiving and processing your submission the Editorial Board will peer review your assignment. If they believe that the submission is heading in the right direction towards publication, it is passed onto an Advisory Board for peer review and feedback. Feedback from both the Editorial Board and Advisory Board will be sent back to the submitter, who then has two weeks to revise it. After revision, the submitter will re-submit and after a final review by the Editorial Board, satisfactory papers will be published. This is a six to eight-week process from initial submission due date to publication.
Journal of International Society publication is bi-annual. One publication occurs in early/mid-winter, and one publication occurs at the end of the Spring. The call for papers goes out three months before the next publication, but submissions are always welcome.
The Journal of International Society does not take institutional positions and the views represented are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Editorial Board, Advisory Board, The University of California, Santa Cruz, the University of California, Santa Cruz board of trustees, or the UC Regents.
