The Journal of Social Inclusion is a peer-reviewed academic journal that will contribute to current knowledge and understanding of the social processes that marginalise individuals, families and communities.

General call for papers

The journal will be published biannually, with the possibility of additional themed issues. Articles should demonstrate original research and fit within the scope of the journal. Scholarly submissions are invited from a broad range of disciplines including, but not restricted to human services and social work, ethics, sociology and social policy, public health, psychology, legal studies, education, criminology and criminal justice, gender studies and creative arts.

The Journal of Social Inclusion will emphasize:

  • Research and developments in social inclusion from Australia and internationally that contribute to the creation of new knowledge of and strategies for its enhancement;
  • New perspectives in social inclusion that engage with traditions, ideas and approaches in other regions and countries;
  • Research that is rigorous, creative and cutting-edge, but that directly is informed by and engages with the experiences, movements and accounts of the socially excluded; Interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary research and developments;
  • Research and work in the area of social inclusion from outside the dominant sociological tradition.

Submissions to the Article or Conference Paper sections of the journal will be triple blind peer-reviewed. Papers submitted to the Book Review and Commentary sections will not be reviewed. The decision of the Editorial Committee will be final.

The Journal uses a rolling submission process, so there are no specific deadlines. Submissions are welcomed at any time and will be processed as they are received. However in order to be considered for a specific issue, submissions should be received approximately three months prior to publication date.
