Welcome to Sociological Research Online
From 1st August 2017, Sociological Research Online (SRO) is being published by the BSA and SAGE. All issues from 22.3 onwards are being published on the SAGE Journals platform. During 2017, we will be digitising previous volumes and, as they appear, those volumes will be free to read on the SAGE Journals platform for the remainder of 2017. From 2018, if you are a reader based outside an academic institution, please contact email@example.com to gain free individual access to SRO. In 2018, SRO will join the SAGE Premier collection and the Research for Life initiatives, giving access to a wide range of academic institutions. If you are a member of an academic institution, we encourage you to access the journal via your institutional library.
We publish fully peer-reviewed sociology looking at current issues. A purely online journal, we make use of new media and reach a wide and international readership. We also publish special sections and rapid response articles, which address key issues in the public arena. Articles can be submitted online.
Sociological Research Online welcomes proposals for special sections from prospective guest-editors. There is guidance on how to write a proposal.
The review editors would like to hear from early career sociologists who are interested in reviewing books for the journal. Please submit your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Author analysis of select articles is available at our blog.
