Call for propositions for the special issue 2020

Do you work on a topic which is key for the dynamic of the Swiss society? Would you like to share the inspiring debates and result of a conference you co-organised with a broader scientific community? Are you participating in the development of a thrilling new method and do you look for a platform in order to create a broader discussion? If the answer to one of these questions is yes, the next special issue of the Swiss Journal of Sociology could be the appropriate forum for you.

About SJS

The Swiss Journal of Sociology was established in 1975 on the initiative of the Swiss Sociological Association. It is published by Seismo and appears three times a year with the support of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Since 2016, all the articles of the Swiss Journal of Sociology are available as open access documents on De Gruyter Open:

The journal is a multilingual voice for analysis and research in sociology. It publishes work on the theory, methods, practice, and history of the social sciences in English, French, or German.

Although a central aim of the Journal is to reflect the state of the discipline in Switzerland as well as current developments, articles, research notes, debates, and book reviews will be accepted irrespective of the author’s nationality or whether the submitted work focuses on this country.

The journal is understood as a representative medium and therefore open to all research areas, to a plurality of schools and methodological approaches. It neither favours nor excludes any research orientation but particularly intends to promote communication between different perspectives. In order to fulfil this aim, all submissions will be refereed anonymously by at least two reviewers.
