Coronavirus: Sociological and Social
Policy Perspectives

The International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy (IJSSP) is genuinely global in its reach and scope, providing an interdisciplinary forum for research and debate in sociology and social policy.

Its focus is on topics related to economic and management issues (e.g. corporate social responsibility, business ethics, work organization and entrepreneurship) and it targets authors who are sociological and social policy scholars working in management and business schools (who now comprise a large proportion of all sociologists and social policy scholars).

We are keen to publish articles on the burning issues in sociological research centred on the study of the economy, family and work, including articles on the informal economy and unpaid work.

The journal publishes double blind peer-reviewed, academic articles in all areas of sociology and social policy, but predominantly with an international and/or comparative relevance. The journal also publishes special themed issues under the guidance of a Guest Editor. The journal reflects current thought and practice, presenting comprehensive coverage of issues of international importance in a lively and informative way.
