Sociology is acknowledged as one of the leading journals in its field. For more than four decades, the journal has made a major contribution to the debates that have shaped the discipline and has an undisputed international reputation for publishing original research of the highest academic standard.
The scope of Sociology is wide ranging - both geographically and substantively - and it includes shorter notes, comments, reviews of recent developments and book reviews as well as core theoretical and empirical research papers. It also publishes occasional special issues principally devoted to particular themes.
Members of the BSA receive either Sociology or Work Employment and Society as part of their membership benefits package. They can also opt to receive the other journal at a reduced rate. If you choose to receive Sociology, for example, you can opt to subscribe to Work Employment and Society at the reduced rate of £42.00 (in 2012) or vice-versa. This represents a saving of one third. BSA members are also entitled to subscribe to the co-owned BSA/SAGE journal, Cultural Sociology, for just £15 (usually £49 - see the Cultural Sociology page for more information).
