You’re invited to submit your paper for consideration in a special issue 
of the journal Information, Communication & Society (ICS). For the 11th 
year, the journal ICS will publish a special issue in cooperation with 
CITAMS. It will be published speedily – before the next ASA meeting in 
August 2018.

Eligible papers are those presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the 
American Sociological Association, including roundtables, and the Media 
Pre-Conference in Montreal, CA. You’ll have more than a month to polish up 
your presentations, as the full papers are not due until October 1, 2017 – 
firm deadline.

The special issue welcomes papers that focus on any facet of media, 
technology, communication, information, or related topics. This is a great 
opportunity to have your paper read by an interested audience, and the 
acceptance rate is quite good.

ICS has enabled 'green open access,' meaning that authors may post 
pre-print versions of their paper on their own website, in an 
institutional repository or in a subject repository, such as the SocARXIV.
Please submit manuscripts for consideration through ScholarOne, available 
at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rics. If you do not have an account, 
you will need to create one. Also, be sure to check the box for “Special 
Issue” and indicate “CITAMS” in it, so that it will be routed 

All accepted manuscripts must respect a word limit of 6,000-8,000 words 
(depending on the number of submissions accepted) and conform to the 
journal's submission guidelines.

Full papers due: October 1, 2017
First round of reviews back to authors: December 1, 2017
Final decisions: March 1, 2018
Special issue publication (anticipated): June 2018
