Call for Submissions

Spring 2017 Special Issue: Diversity and Social Justice in Higher Education


This special issue of the Humboldt Journal of Social Relations (HJSR) captures work and experiences in higher education as they relate to changes and challenges around diversifying U.S. college campuses. Race, class, gender, sexuality, able-bodiedness, and citizenship shape contemporary conversations about campus climate, curricular content, organizational structures, decision making and the disparate impacts of related policy changes or stagnation. These conversations shape the everyday experiences of faculty and staff, and ultimately are linked to student success.


Submission Deadline: October 31, 2016


Authorship: Authors are encouraged to collaborate with other faculty and staff members across their university and across campuses involved with diversity projects, particularly as they relate to campus culture and climate, retention, and student success. Interdisciplinary submissions are welcome.


Manuscript Submission:

1. Manuscripts should be in 12 point font, double spaced and generally not exceed 8500 words. To facilitate blind review, authors should incorporate a cover page that includes an article title, author contact information, a biographical statement of 75 words or less, and an abstract of 150 words or less. Format citations, tables, figures and references using American Sociological Association style.

2. Email hjsr@humboldt.edu with a message subject “HJSR: Diversity” and attach your manuscript in .doc or.docx format.

3. Submission implies commitment to publish in HJSR. Authors should not simultaneously submit to another journal. Manuscripts should not have been published elsewhere.


Manuscript Submission instructions, and more information, available at the HJSR web site. http://www.humboldt.edu/hjsr/
