“stylized facts in the social sciences” in sociological science

I’m happy to announce that Sociological Science has just published my paper Stylized Facts in the Social Sciences. The paper is a quirky mix of social theory, history of social science, and politics of knowledge that made it a tough sell for other journals but a nice fit with Sociological Science. If you read the paper and have a comment, post it as a reaction on their site!

As a note, the publication process was just as fast and smooth as they advertise. I think Sociological Science acquired a reputation for publishing primarily tighter quant papers in its first issues, but I’m glad to say that they seem to have had no issue with my theory piece, and they’ve also just published a historical article by Josh McCabe and Beth Berman on child tax credits. So, if you’re looking for an Open Access-friendly, high quality, fast outlet for sociology of all sorts, check out Sociological Science!

And, because the journal is open access, I can easily post the final paper onto SocArXiv!
