Launch: New Journal of Organizational Sociology

We are happy to announce the new Journal of Organizational Sociology, which has just launched and is now open for submissions:


The Journal of Organizational Sociology is intended to be a worldwide forum for scholarly debate that encompasses everything pertaining to the nexus between organization and society. It is published in association with the Research Committee "Sociology of Organization" (RC17) of the International Sociological Association. The Journal of Organizational Sociology is published Open Access with no costs for authors and readers. The first issue will appear in 2023. Submissions featuring mainstream perspectives in organizational sociology are as welcome as articles that advance or apply alternative sociological perspectives.


The basic idea is to create a journal that is specifically organization-sociological, that is truly international, and that embraces all theory traditions and debates. The Journal of Organizational Sociology is not a journal for sociologists only, but for everyone who works sociologically with organizations, no matter which formal affiliation they might have. The Journal of Organizational Sociology features a diverse board of Associate Editors which consists of sociologically working scholars from differing countries and with different theoretical, methodological, and thematic backgrounds and interests:
