Swiss Journal of Sociology

Revue Suisse de sociologie/ Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Soziologie

The Swiss Journal of Sociology was established in 1975 on the initiative of the Swiss Sociological Association. It is published three times a year with the support of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The journal is a multilingual voice for analysis and research in sociology. It publishes work on the theory, methods, practice, and history of the social sciences in English, French, or German.

Although a central aim of the Journal is to reflect the state of the discipline in Switzerland as well as current developments, articles, research notes, debates, and book reviews will be accepted irrespective of the author's nationality or whether the submitted work focuses on this country.

The journal is understood as a representative medium and therefore open to all research areas, to a plurality of schools and methodological approaches. It neither favours nor excludes any research orientation but particularly intends to promote communication between different perspectives. In order to fulfil this aim, all submissions will be refereed anonymously by at least two reviewers. The journal uses double-blind peer review process.

The journal does not have article processing charges (APCs) nor article submission charges.
