the contexts 1 million campaign

Ultimately, Contexts magazine’s only goal is to bring sociology to the public. But it’s not enough to read Contexts or even subscribe to it. You have to tell people about it. This is the journal that your mother or spouse can read. You can give it to high school students. Your elected representative can read it. It is truly accessible in a way that most academic journals are not.

That’s why I’m trying for a new goal this Fall. SAGE told me that Contexts got about 500k in views and downloads in 2017. Then we got over 700k in 2018 – that is fabulous!!! Next goal? 1,000,000!!!!!

But how should we get to 1 million? Of course, the editorial team will still work hard to bring you top notch content. Also, if you are an author at Contexts, and your work appeared in summer 2018 or earlier, you can distribute it for FREE. The paywall is DOWN after 12 months. So link, spread and retweet! That will help boost numbers. Finally, I will donate $100 to charity chosen by the readers of this blog if we reach that 1,000,000 magic number by year’s end.
