International Sociology and International Sociology Reviews

International Sociology is a highly ranked (Q1) peer reviewed journal established in 1986 by the International Sociological Association (ISA) and published by SAGE. The journal is included in 50 international indexing databases.

Its aim is to reflect the theoretical and empirical diversity of international sociology. Particularly welcome are papers which explore contemporary social challenges and transformations affecting global society or which highlight how an international perspective can provide fresh insights contributing to the development of international sociological theory and knowledge. As the journal caters for the diverse sociological community, it welcomes theoretical contributions as well as empirical papers using qualitative and quantitative approaches.

Launched in 2006, International Sociology Reviews welcomes reviews of different types of materials of interest to an international community of sociologists.

Contributions may be submitted in English, French, Spanish or other languages for which it is possible to identify suitable reviewers. However, the articles will be published only in English.
