About the Journal

Aims and Scope of the Journal of Sociology

The Journal of Sociology: Bulletin of Yerevan University, has a rich history of modernization. First published in 1967, it is one of the oldest and most prominent scientific journals in Armenia, firmly grounded in the fundamental traditions of interdisciplinary academic research and conceptualization. Since 2010, the Sociology Series of the Bulletin has been published as special issues.

The Journal of Sociology: Bulletin of Yerevan State University welcomes papers that focus on sociological and interdisciplinary analysis of current problems in modern society, without limiting its interests to any particular direction. We are interested in both theoretical and applied research studies. The journal covers a wide range of sociological considerations, including social, economic, political, and military issues as reflected in public perceptions and social life. It also places emphasis on sociological studies of social groups, stratification, dynamics, communication, and interaction. The methodology of sociological studies is one of the core topics of the series. Additionally, we welcome research papers that address contemporary issues in social work and social administration.

The Journal of Sociology is published twice a year, in June and December.

The journal welcomes papers submitted by well-known scholars, as well as those submitted by less experienced researchers who demonstrate excellence in formulating non-standard hypotheses and applying innovative research methods.
