SocialEyes

Undergraduate Academic Journal

In a world that is getting more complex and global, it is important to step aside and look at our everyday life from an entirely new perspective. Developing questions about our lives that we never had time to ask, trying to find answers to those questions, and sharing the new discoveries (both theoretical and empirical) are what SocialEyes aims to do. We do not require expertise in Sociological theories or research methods, but we require your sociological imagination.

SocialEyes publish one issue every end of the academic year and it gets read by all students and professors in Sociology department, deans and provosts in Arts & Science school, and globally. As our issues get published online as in print, some of our articles get translated for undergraduate journals of other universities.

Become a Part of SocialEyes

SocialEyes is seeking dedicated undergraduates to help with the editing and publishing of our ninth issue.

As an editor, you will be assigned to edit one (or two) of the submissions selected for publication by the e-board. It is the editor’s main responsibility to collaborate with the author through a series of editing rounds to get that piece ready for publication. However, editing workshops and additional help and supervision will be provided by the e-board and Graduate Student Assistant to ensure that the workload is manageable and worthwhile. Becoming an editor for SocialEyes is a great opportunity to refine your sociological imagination, practice academic writing, and to work in a collaborative environment. Additionally, editors will have the opportunity to join the e-board the following year.

The journal will be released in April 2018, at which point all editors will be invited to attend a launch party with faculty and students to celebrate the publication of the ninth issue of SocialEyes.

If you are interested in becoming an editor for the journal, please fill out the following Google form: https://goo.gl/forms/tMiNwgZJnT7iw34o1 or email SocialEyes editor-in-chief, Kara Murdock, at murdocka@bc.edu.
