What kind of work do you publish?

Eleven publishes excellent undergraduate work with sociological relevance. Our journal includes papers from all fields of research, not just Sociology! We accept both short (10-25 pg) and long papers (35-65 pg). See our previous volumes for an example of the length and subject matter Eleven publishes!

Application Process for Prospective Authors

We are currently accepting submissions for Volume 9. We review pieces on a rolling basis, will continue to do so until we reach our desired number of papers. If we have already accepted our pieces for Volume 9 by the time we receive your paper, we will notify you as such and plan to review it for our Volume 10 instead.

Editorial Review Process

Our review and selection process is double blind, and your submission will go to three separate reviewers. Each submission and each reviewer is assigned a unique three digit code to ensure anonymity and avoid any bias. After all reviews have been submitted, high-scoring submissions will be reviewed once again by the editorial board who will ultimately select which papers go to publication. Since we process submissions on a rolling basis, the amount of time it takes to complete the reviewing stage varies greatly. 

The Editing Process: Accepted Papers

If your paper is selected for the journal, we begin the editing process. Each accepted piece is assigned to two editors, who will reread the piece and send the accepted author an email with detailed explanations of the necessary changes. Authors are granted about two weeks to complete the stated revisions before returning the piece to Eleven editors. During this time, email correspondence and Skype conversations between author and editors are encouraged to facilitate mutual understanding of the piece at hand. This entire process is repeated as many times necessary until the Eleven editors feel the piece is fit to be published; usually three to four rounds. 

Publication Cycle Status
