 The Journal for Social Thought (JST) is a peer reviewed academic journal run and maintained by graduate students in the department of sociology at Western University in Canada. This journal focuses on publishing the theoretical and empirical contributions of graduate students, post-docs, academic professionals, and independent scholars in an open access platform. Each issue of the JST focuses on either a general theme or different specialized topics related to today‚Äôs relevant sociological questions, which fall underneath the general umbrella of social thought. Our mission is to facilitate the exchange of brilliant and innovative ideas in sociology and other related fields, while especially providing an avenue for graduate students to be involved in the publishing and review processes.
