Journal of Consumer Culture

The Journal of Consumer Culture (Sage) is a major new journal designed to support and promote the dynamic expansion in interdisciplinary research on consumption and consumer culture. The goal is both to provide an outlet for current thinking and debate and, more importantly, to open up new means of exploration. Global in perspective and drawing on both theory and empirical research, the journal reflects the need to engage critically with modern consumer culture and to understand its central role in contemporary social processes.

The Journal of Consumer Culture invites contributions for early issues. Deadline for submissions for the first issue (June 2001) is September 2000. Five copies of the manuscript should be submitted, typed, double-spaced on one side of page only. This should be accompanied by a disk with the file in Word or WordPerfect. The length should not normally exceed 8000 words. Each submission will be reviewed anonymously by at least two referees. The Journal uses the Harvard system of referencing with the author's name and date in the text and a full bibliography in alphabetical order at the end of the article.
