Did you present a paper at the ISA Forum of Sociology, Vienna (July 10-14, 2016)? Was your paper related to theoretical issues and methodological problems in aging, health and life course? Then we’d like to hear from you!
We are pleased to announce a forthcoming special issue of STH entitled ‘Emerging Issues for a Global Health Sociology’, to be comprised of papers selected by the Global Health Sociology Network – a coordinated effort between the three official international associations (or sections of them) of Medical and Health Sociology: The International Sociological Association Research Committee 15 (ISA RC15) on Sociology of Health, the European Sociological Association Research Network 16 (ESA RN16) on Sociology of Health and Illness, and the European Society for Health and Medical Sociology (ESHMS).
The ISA RC15 will select papers on the sub-topic of ‘Aging, health and life course: theoretical issues and methodological problems’ from those presented at the ISA Forum of Sociology in Vienna. The two selected papers will be selected by the ISA before being submitted to STH for double-blind peer review and examination according to the normal editorial policy and rules of the journal.
We invite ISA Forum participants to elaborate their papers according to the journal’s instructions for authors and send them accordingly to email@example.com. The deadline for the submission of the paper is March 31, 2017.
