The Czech Sociological Review is the flagship journal of the Czech sociological community. Supported by an international editorial board and published biannually, the journal is open to contributors from all around the world. It invites contributions from authors interested in the issues of transformation in Central and Eastern Europe and in the comparative study of social and political developments affecting CEE, but equally welcome is innovative theoretical and methodological work of a more general nature. The journal’s scope extends to every area of sociology and it also accepts sociologically informed work from related social sciences, such as political science, history, economics, or social anthropology.
The journal invites scholars from anywhere in the world and of the most varied theoretical and methodological convictions to submit their manuscripts to the peer-review process. Also, the submission of work by advanced post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers is strongly encouraged.
On the regional level, the journal strives to support communication among national sociologies in Central Europe, increase the international visibility of Central European sociology, and develop this region’s distinct identity by providing space for the publication of work produced by Central European researchers. Naturally, new research by Czech authors is published on the journal’s pages and is thus made accessible to the regional and international community.
Besides original theoretical and empirical research, the journal also publishes review articles and reviews of books focusing on new developments in theoretical and empirical sociology in CEE countries and worldwide.
