The UK’s oldest sociology journal

The Sociological Review is one of the world’s foremost journals for sociological inquiry in all traditions.

Not only are we committed as a journal to the far-reaching intellectualism of sociological thought, we are also championing a cause: that sociology matters.

Upcoming event: The Sociological Review and the History of the Discipline

We are delighted to open applications for this one-day event, intended to raise awareness of the Foundations of British Sociology archive maintained by Keele University. This remarkable resource collects a diverse array of materials from the 1880s to the 1950s, gifted to the university when the Institute of Sociology was dissolved in 1955. We look forward to welcoming delegates to Keele University where they will have a chance to explore this rich resource and discuss the enduring cultural, historical and evidentiary value of this archive for British Sociology.

Between boards, trustees, editors and staff, it takes many people coming together to produce The Sociological Review, especially now that we’ve broadened into a community organisation.
