Work and Occupations

An International Sociological Journal

Vanderbilt University

Manuscript Submission Now Offered Via Work & Occupation’s SAGEtrack Site

Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal (WO) publishes sociological and social scientific research on work, occupations, employment, and labor themes. Articles promote new theoretical insights in contemporary scholarly discourse and inform policymaking.

Content: Submissions should critically engage relevant scholarly research, with, if appropriate for the topic, an emphasis on contemporary scholarly discourse. Prospective authors should consult recent issues of the journal for the level of academic rigor, critical engagement of contemporary scholarship, and format and style of published articles.

Manuscript Format: Articles should be typewritten double-spaced with footnotes, references, tables, and charts on separate pages and should be accompanied by an abstract of less than 100 words and 4-5 keywords, as well as a 50-word biographical paragraph describing each author’s current affiliation, research interests, and recent publications. Follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition) for journal style.

Manuscript Submission: Manuscripts should be submitted online at the SAGEtrack website New authors should use the “Create Account: New users click here” button at the submission website. After entering the website, go to the “Corresponding Author Center” to submit manuscripts, using the “Click here to submit a new manuscript” button. At the completion of the upload of each file, a confirmation window will appear asking for a description of the file (for the main document, use language such as “article text” or “main document”; for figures, indicate a figure number, such as “Figure 1”; and for other supporting materials, indicate clearly what the file is).

Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content.
