Body & Society has from its inception in March 1995 as a companion journal to Theory, Culture & Society, pioneered and shaped the field of body-studies. It has been committed to theoretical openness characterized by the publication of a wide range of critical approaches to the body, alongside the encouragement and development of innovative work that contains a trans-disciplinary focus.

The disciplines reflected in the journal have included anthropology, art history, communications, cultural history, cultural studies, environmental studies, feminism, film studies, health studies, leisure studies, medical history, philosophy, psychology, religious studies, science studies, sociology and sport studies. The journal has also sought to examine a wide range of issues which have arisen from the writings of theorists such as: Baudrillard, Bergson, Bourdieu, Butler, Cixous, Deleuze, Douglas, Elias, Ettinger, Foucault, Haraway, Kristeva, Latour, Mauss, Merleau-Ponty, and Simondon.

Emergent Themes

In recent years work on the body has exploded and studies of the body and embodiment have become increasingly central to discussions of technologies, film, media practices, communication, performance, art, regeneration, architecture, labour, dance, affect and life. These are some of the emergent objects, practices and themes that have been enriched by a turn to the body and embodiment, and which are reflected in the emergence of a huge and growing body-studies literature.

Special Re-Launch Issue - Body, Affect, Life.

It thus seemed timely to re-launch Body & Society as the key journal for publishing work related to body-matters, and also to re-position the journal as leading and shaping the trans-disciplinary field of body-studies. In our role we have identified a number of emergent themes that are shaping the field, and these include a renewed interest in relation to life and affect across the social sciences and humanities. The paradigms of life and affect break down the distinction between humans and other life forms, and is echoed in debates across the biological and 'environmental' sciences. This is a new post-humanism that examines our communality with other forms of creaturely life and companion species, and the need for a non-anthropocentric ethics. The body that organizes such diverse practices and areas of experience is a body that is open, relational, human and non-human, material, indeterminate, immaterial, multiple, sentient and processual.

    Body & Society is a rigorously peer reviewed international journal that publishes innovative research and review articles on a range of topics which cross the boundaries between the social sciences and the humanities.

    Notes  for Contributors

    Body & Society is now edited and refereed electronically. Authors and referees must submit manuscripts or obtain articles to review via the B&S Manuscript Central website. This is located at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/bod


    Peer review policy

    As part of the submission process you will be asked to provide the names of X peers who could be called upon to review your manuscript. Recommended reviewers should be experts in their fields and should be able to provide an objective assessment of the manuscript. Please be aware of any conflicts of interest when recommending reviewers. Examples of conflicts of interest include (but are not limited to) the below: 

    • The reviewer should have no prior knowledge of your submission
    • The reviewer should not have recently collaborated with any of the authors
    • Reviewer nominees from the same institution as any of the authors are not permitted

    Please note that the Editors are not obliged to invite any recommended/opposed reviewers to assess your manuscript.

    All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the article should be listed as authors. Principal authorship, authorship order, and other publication credits should be based on the relative scientific or professional contributions of the individuals involved, regardless of their status. A student is usually listed as principal author on any multiple-authored publication that substantially derives from the student’s dissertation or thesis.

    Acknowledgements

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support.

    Writing assistance

    Individuals who provided writing assistance, e.g. from a specialist communciations company, do not qualify as authors and so should be included in the Acknowledgements section. Authors must disclose any writing assistance – including the individual’s name, company and level of input – and identify the entity that paid for this assistance”).

    It is not necessary to disclose use of language polishing services.

    Manuscript Types and Refereeing Processes

    B&S operates with a range of manuscript types. All manuscripts are considered for publication on the understanding that they are not under consideration elsewhere.

    The main manuscript types are as follows:

    Articles

    1. Articles published in B&S are refereed. The refereeing process is blind, so contributors should take care to remove any obvious indications of authorship.

    2. While contributors can submit articles in any major language, the preferred manuscript is English. The language of publication is English.

    3. Articles should generally contain between 6,000 and 8,000 words.

    4. The refereeing process normally takes around 3-6months.

    5. B&S receives hundreds of manuscripts every year and accepts less than 10% of the papers submitted to the journal.

    Special Issue/Special Section Articles

    The above also applies to all special issue and section articles. However, guest editors commission the majority of these. Special issue and section articles are blind refereed. Authors of special issue and special section pieces should carefully read the B&S Special Issue guidelines. These can found at Sage’s B&S website

    http://bod.sagepub.com/

    and at B&S Manuscript Central

    http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/bod

    Notes & Commentary Pieces

    Shorter commentaries of 4,000 to 6,000 words are also invited. Normally these are not blind refereed, but commented on by editorial board members and associate editors.

    Please make sure you select ‘Notes & Commentary’ from the Manuscript Type dropdown menu in the Author Centre on B&S ManuscriptCentral before you upload your piece.

    Interviews

    We welcome the submission of interviews with prominent figures in the social sciences and humanities. Normally these should be between 3,000 and 8,000 words. Normally these are not blind refereed, but commented on by editorial board members and associate editors.

    Please make sure you select ‘Interview’ from the Manuscript Type dropdown menu in the Author Centre on B&S ManuscriptCentral before you upload your piece.

    Review Articles

    Please make sure you select ‘Review Article’ from the Manuscript Type dropdown menu before you upload your piece.

    Normally Review articles are 4-6,000 words long.

    Review articles can be of a single important book, or a series of books on a particular topic, or a more sweeping ‘decade review’ of a particular field or emergent area.

    They are commented on by editorial board members and associate editors and occasionally blind refereed.

    Please note that B&S does not accept unsolicited review articles.

    Book Reviews

    Please make sure you select ‘Book Review’ from the Manuscript Type dropdown menu before you upload your piece.

    The normal length for book reviews is 1-2000 words.

    In all cases review articles and book reviews must conform to the B&S house style (which is detailed below).

    The review editors regularly commission book reviews. At the same time we are always interested in extending our panel of reviewers. Should you wish to review books for B&S you should write to the review editors with your biographical details and interests along with information on the proposed book. We are also interested in reviews of books published outside the English-speaking world.

    Please note that B&S does not accept unsolicited book reviews.

    Special Issue/Special Section Proposals

    B&S regularly produces special issues and sections. We welcome proposals from prospective guest editors. Authors submitting special issue and special section proposals should carefully read and follow the B&S guidelines for special issues and sections. These can found at the B&S website http://bod.sagepub.com/ and at on the Instructions & Forms pages at B&S ManuscriptCentral http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/bod

    Refereeing for B&S

    We are always interested in people who would like to referee papers for the journal.

    B&S manuscript central http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/bod asks authors to submit papers with 3-7 keywords that we use to identify prospective referees from our referees’ database. If you are interested in becoming a referee please take a look at the keywords list and email some keywords to us which best reflect your interests along with a short CV and details of your current work.

    We also welcome suggestions of people we could approach to be referees or contribute manuscripts to B&S.

    Preparation of Manuscripts

    1. The article should be uploaded as the 'main document', and begin with the title, a 150 word abstract and 3-7 keywords. A brief biographical note (max. 100 words) should be included in a separate document and uploaded as the 'biographical note'. The latter document will not be sent to referees.

    2. Titles should clearly identify the subject of your article. This is an important strategy to increase the chance of articles coming up in Google searches and therefore improving the likelihood of your article being read and cited.

    3. The keywords must be selected from the keyword list available on the B&S Manuscript Central website. The keywords are essential in helping editors select referees from our referees’ database. If you have difficulty matching keywords, or have suggestions on ones to be added, please let us know. Choosing the most relevant keywords is again an important strategy to increase the chance of articles coming up in Google searches and therefore improving the likelihood of your article being read and cited.

    4. To protect anonymity, please make sure that you do not include your name anywhere within the main document (e.g. as a running head or at the end).

    5. The number and length of notes should be strictly limited. They should be numbered serially and included at the end of the text prior to the references section.

    6. Please make sure you insert page numbers into your manuscript.

    Format of References in the Text

    Identify all references to books, monographs, articles and other sources at an appropriate point in the main text by author’s last name, year of publication, and pagination where appropriate, all within parentheses. Specify subsequent citations of the same source similarly - do not use ibid., op cit. or loc. cit.

    If the author’s name is in the text, use only the year of publication in parentheses:

    Lash (2001)

    If the author’s name is not in the text, include both the author’s name and year of publication separated by a comma within the parentheses:

    (Bauman, 1999)

    Pagination follows year:

    (Beck, 2002: 31-32)

    With dual authorship, give both names; for three or more use ‘et al’:

    (Hardt, M. and Negri, A, 2000) and (Bennett et al, 1986)

    If there is more than one reference to the same author and year, distinguish between them by use of letters a, b etc. attached to year of publication:

    (Foucault, 1979a)

    Enclose within a single pair of parentheses a series of references separated by semicolons:

    (Bourdieu, 1984; Dimaggio, 1987; Lamont, 1988)

    Format of References

    List all entries cited in the text, or any other items used to prepare the manuscript, alphabetically by author and year of publication in a separate headed references section at the end of the article. For typing format, see examples below:

    Shildrick, M. (2008) ‘Corporeal Cuts: Surgery and the Psycho-Social,’ Body & Society 14 (1): 31-46.

    Kearney, R. (ed) (1996) Paul Ricoeur and the Hermeneutics of Action. London: Sage Publications.

    Harootunian, H. (2001) Overcome by Modernity. Princeton: Princeton University Press.

    Friedman, J. (1997) 'Global Crises, the Struggle for Cultural Identity and Intellectual Porkbarrelling,' in Werbner, P. and Modood T. (eds.) Debating Cultural Hybridity. London: Zed Books.

    Format of Quotations within the Text

    For quotations within the text please make sure to use single inverted commas on all occasions, except for a quotation within a quotation which should be placed within double inverted commas. Quotations longer than two or three sentences should be put in an indented paragraph format without the use of inverted commas.

    Book Reviews and Review Articles

    Review Articles

    1. Review articles commence with a title, 150 word abstract and 3-7 keywords in the same manner as a standard article.

    2. These are followed by the book(s) listed in the style mentioned below for book reviews.

    3. References to other publications should follow the B&S house style outlined earlier in this document.

    4. Notes should be kept to a minimum.

    5. Authors should add a brief biographical note (max. 100 words) in a separate document.

    Book Reviews

    1. Please make sure to set out the heading of your book review in the following way:

    Political Machines: Governing a Technological Society

    by Andrew Barry

    London and New York: Continuum, 2001, pp. 305, ISBN 0 485 00634 0,

    Pbk £16.99

    If you have problems submitting your piece, please contact bod@sagepub.co.uk

    Revised Papers

    1. If you are revising a paper for publication in B&S, please could you make sure that all changes to the original article are highlighted, and that you include the words 'FIRST REVISION' on the first page of the document. The pdf proof we produce and send to referees will automatically merge your revision and your original article, so that referees can easily compare the different versions.

    2. The best way to highlight changes is to use the Microsoft (MS) Word facility which tracks changes. The ‘Track Changes’ facility can be found in the MS Word toolbar by clicking on ‘Tools’. This will enable deletions and new material to be visible to editors and will assist referees considering the revised version. It will also help board members check that the requested revisions have been made.

    If you need any advice on using this facility, please contact Simon Dawes in the B&S Editorial Office at bod@sagepub.co.uk

    Revised papers will be reviewed again, normally by the original set of reviewers.

    3. When you upload the revised version of your paper via ManuscriptCentral, please make sure you hit the correct button (click the ‘create a revision’ link which appears next to your original submission) to designate it as a revised version. This will add a new suffix to the paper’s code, R1 – e.g. B-08-200-BOD.R1. Should a second round of revisions be needed, again the revised paper button needs selecting and an R2 suffix will be given. You will need to include the words 'SECOND REVISION' on the first page of the document.

    4. The refereeing process should again take around 3-4 months.

    Accepted with Minor Revisions

    1. All minor revisions to papers should be highlighted in the same manner described above for revised papers. This will enable deletions and new material to be visible to editors and will assist referees considering the revised version. It will also help board members check that the requested revisions have been made.

    2. AMR papers do not normally go back to the original referees, but are commented on by editorial board members and associate editors.

    3. When you upload the revised version of your paper via ManuscriptCentral, please make sure you hit the correct button (click the ‘create a revision’ link which appears next to your original submission) to designate it as a revised version. This will add a new suffix to the paper’s code, R1 – e.g. B-08-200-BOD.R1. Should a second round of revisions be needed, again the revised paper button needs selecting and an R2 suffix will be given.

    4. The refereeing process should take around 1-2 months.

    Accepted Papers: Preparation of Manuscript for Publication

    1. Authors should email the final version of accepted papers to bod@sagepub.co.uk and indicate in the accompanying note that it is the final accepted version.

    2. Authors should carefully check that the final version of their manuscript conforms to the B&S house style as specified in the Notes for Contributors. These can be found by hitting the Instructions and Forms button which is available on each page of the B&S Manuscript Central website.

    3. The final version needs to be formatted in double space, with endnotes and not footnotes.

    4. Notes for Contributors are also available inside the back cover of each copy of the Body & Society journal.

    6. Authors should include their current postal address and email, as well as any anticipated changes for the next year.

    7. Provide emails giving written permission to reproduce illustrations from copyright holders. Hard copies of signed letters may be required in some instances.

    8. Provide good quality copies of illustrations. Please provide two sets of images: a black and white one for publication in the hard copy journal and a colour one for publication in the electronic version. Details can be found by pressing the Instructions and Forms button which is available on each page of the TCS Manuscript Central website.

    9. Please make sure to number the images and indicate clearly where they should go in the text.

    11. Offprints. On publication authors will receive a downloadable version of their B&S piece, in PDF format, that can be resent 25 times, and contact authors will also receive a hard copy of the issue in which their paper is published.

    Key to Editorial Decision Categories
