I hope that you have come across Discover Society the online magazine which publishes pieces based on social science research for a wide audience – you may even have written for us – but if not do check it out at discoversociety.org
As Editors we are committed ensuring that the magazine continues to be free at the point of access and to keeping our costs low, but we want to develop the magazine further and need to cover the costs of doing so.
Discover Society is approaching its third anniversary and is definitely a success – with over 25,000 hits on the site every month, close to 9,000 followers on Twitter, and a steady stream of people wanting to write pieces. If you enjoy Discover Society/ think it is useful for getting sociological research out there and you would like to help it to flourish please support it (either individually or as a Department) by becoming a ‘Friend of Discover Society’ and donating a small amount (or larger if you like!).
Your support would mean that we could:
- Fund the increasing costs of hosting and maintaining the website
- Fund the continuation of the Discover Society Internship
- Host Discover Society Lectures and other events to increase the reach of the magazine and the impact of the contributions
- Increase our support for making social science research more accessible
If you would like to help us to do these things, and more, please support the magazine by becoming a Friend of Discover Society via the Donate button on the front page at discoversociety.org.
All good wishes
