Focus and Scope
Sociologie Românească (Romanian Sociology Review) welcomes original research papers with innovative methods, theoretical and conceptual research papers, case studies, book reviews and conference reviews. We encourage studies with different methodologies and theoretical approaches that could add value to already established normative ways of doing research, but also approaches that give space to alternative methodologies and critical theories including social change, social development, social history, social policy, demography, gender studies, political issues, social inequalities, education, organization & labour studies, criminology and migration studies.

Articles that include Romania in their analyses are particularly welcomed, however we are committed to expand this focus.
