The Monograph Series

The Sociological Review is home to a prestigious Monograph Series, which has for over fifty years produced intellectually stimulating, coherent volumes of outstanding and original scholarly articles on issues of general sociological interest. From 2016, The Sociological Review Monographs will be given their own identity within Wiley Online Library, to better reflect the strength of the series and its value to all those who use a sociological imagination to approach their object of study.

The Monograph web pages will be live in 2016, and will retain very clear reciprocal online links to journal content. Please note that subscribers to The Sociological Review will continue to receive four issues of the journal and two monographs within each volume.

Something to come: a new SR publication

The SR is to launch a new venture called Past and Present: SR classics from the twentieth century. The SR began life in 1908 with its second or ‘new series’ being inaugurated in 1953: it is therefore the oldest British journal of sociology as well as being one of the longest established international sociology journals. Past and Present has been prompted by Wiley's digitization of The SR. Since 2012 the complete run has been available online, securing and widening access to the SR legacy. Our aim is to put this cultural capital to work on behalf of the profession and the wider community. Past and Present will be a wholly on-line series of papers, each of which will revisit significant SR articles from the last century. The intention is to republish classic papers on these web pages and, alongside them, a contemporary review written from the perspective of the twenty-first century. The author of each review will be an established researcher who works in the field to which the paper relates. Each new paper will (a) place the original in its intellectual context; (b) assess its impact on the development of the topic or field and (c) reflect on the contemporary sociological relevance of the paper. Authors will capture the originality, imagination and interest of the past paper for a twenty-first century readership. The SR welcomes expressions of interest in this project. Meanwhile, watch this space for news to come.
