About Sociologica

Sociologica. Italian Journal of Sociology online is a peer-reviewed journal published three times a year. The journal publishes theoretical, methodological and empirical articles providing original and rigorous contributions to the sociological current debate.

Founded in 2007 and published by one of the main Italian social sciences publishers, il Mulino, Sociologica is one of the first international journals of sociology published solely online.


One of the main aims of Sociologica is to establish a close dialogue between sociology and society, between sociological knowledge and public debate. This is the intention behind Forefront (Primo Piano), that is built with inputs by the journal's editorial staff and readership, who may react to articles published in the journal by posting their contributions on the website.
