Call for Papers
We are currently inviting papers for Auto/Biography Review. We are pleased to announce that, from 2021, Auto/Biography Review will operate a rolling article submission for two electronic issues per year. Submissions will be blind peer reviewed by at least two experienced scholars.
This longstanding publication of the Auto/Biography Study Group is sociologically orientated but welcomes contributions from a range of intersecting disciplines, and fields, including but not restricted to sociology, history, geography, law and politics, psychology, health and healthcare, youth and social work, education, work and employment, business and management, literary criticism, and the arts. In the coming year we are particularly interested in publishing works on lockdown moments and the unheard voices of the COVID-19 pandemic, and those which adopt creative new approaches or new topics of contemporary relevance.
