The BSA is delighted to publish Sociological Research Online with SAGE.  The journal provides an important publishing outlet for peer reviewed sociological research.

Sociological Research Online was launched as the first online-only peer-reviewed sociology journal in 1996. It used new technologies to publish original qualitative and quantitative research, audio, visual and video data, thematic special sections and rapid response calls.

The journal welcome submissions of high quality applied sociology, focusing on theoretical, empirical and methodological discussions that engage with current political, cultural and intellectual topics and debates. Articles published by Sociological Research Online are concerned with the application of sociological forms of analysis to a wide range of public issues and private concerns, thereby demonstrating the wide social relevance of sociological research and theory to understanding contemporary social issues.
