Aims and scope
The objective of the Journal of Organizational Sociology is to offer a specifically sociological perspective on organization(s) by publishing outstanding and original peer-reviewed articles, which advance the sociological understanding of organization(s), enquiring into their ever-changing internal workings and their relations with each other, as well as examining how organization(s) and society shape each other. It will especially foster sociological debate around this relationship at a global level in a way that is sensitive to regional as well as local specifics. It is intended to be a worldwide forum for scholarly debate that encompasses everything pertaining to the nexus between organization and society.
The journal understands society in a broad sense spanning face-to-face settings, intimate relationships, friendships, and families, fields, markets, and networks, social classes and inequalities, as well as social domains like politics, civil society, media, culture, religion, science, sports, economy, social work, arts, kinship, ecology, health, love, and so on. It cuts across the different sociological sub-disciplines and is open to the whole diversity of organizations and organizational phenomena – including but not limited to corporations, public administrations, IGOs and other political organizations, NGOs, NPOs, social movements, grassroot initiatives, mass media, platforms, schools, art galleries, churches, sports clubs, courts, and other non-conventional and alternative forms of organization. The journal is published in association with the Research Committee "Sociology of Organizations" of the International Sociological Association (ISA RC17), and regards itself as a vehicle for the promotion of the ISA’s general conception of a global sociology.
The uniqueness of the Journal of Organizational Sociology is its dual focus on (1) the sociology of organizations, but also (2) the organizational aspects of forms of social life more generally. The journal thus intends to explore the full spectrum of the organizational dimensions of sociology. It covers the full range of sociological theory traditions and writing styles; no tradition in sociology or organizational theory is favoured above another.
We seek papers that advance sociological theories on organization(s) or that use organizational sociology to provide a better understanding of social phenomena. Submissions featuring mainstream perspectives in organizational sociology are as welcome as articles that advance or apply alternative sociological perspectives. In addition, submissions featuring psychological, managerial, educational, or other theories and themes are welcome, as long as they make a distinctive sociological argument and contribute to sociological debates with specific reference to questions of organizational structure, dynamics, processes, practices, interaction or culture.
The journal features four regular sections:
