International Sociological Association





Current Sociology, an official journal of the International Sociological Association, is one of the oldest and most widely cited sociology journals in the world.

Current Sociology, a peer-reviewed quarterly, is interested in

  • articles discussing trends within sociology but this is within the context of a broader concern with issues: not only the analysis of issues relating to the development of sociology as a discipline but also the contribution that sociological understanding can make to the analysis of issues relating to the development of modern societies in a globalizing world

  • cutting-edge papers for consideration in any sociological specialty, including areas that cut across different sub-fields

  • well-argued and cogent critical responses to articles Current Sociology has already published if these responses also make an original contribution in their own right

Current Sociology Review was launched in 2013 and includes articles selected from sociopedia.isa, the ISA's online review journal, as well as those that have been specially submitted for Current Sociology Review. The review articles provide an overview of theoretical approaches, a review of empirical evidence, an assessment of the state of the art, and a discussion of future directions that theorizing and research might take.
