Journal of Organizational Sociology: First issue published!

We are very happy to announce the publication of the first issue of the new Journal of Organizational Sociology (JOSO). JOSO is supposed to be a platform for debating the role of organization in, for, and throughout society.

You would like to publish a sociological paper for an audience of organizational researchers or an organizational paper for an audience of sociologists? Then JOSO is the outlet for you. We cannot stress enough that we do not care if someone submitting an article is a sociologist or not – whether by affiliation or education. JOSO is for anyone doing sociology with a focus on organization(s).

So please enjoy reading, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and consider submitting!
