Electronic Journal of Sociology

Socjournal is a new media journal intended to offer sociologists a window into the world of new media communications. Recognizing that traditional scholarly publication in traditional scholarly journals is limited, slow, and isolated (i.e. sociological research remains hidden behind an academic wall that is impenetrable to most people), the Socjournal aims to bring sociology to the world by providing blog space, regular columns, and academic reports designed to popularize and disseminate the fascinating world of sociological research.



Contexts is a quarterly magazine that makes cutting-edge social research accessible to general readers.  The magazine includes feature articles, culture and book reviews, photography, as well as summaries of the latest findings from social science research and news within the field.
