About Us

Social Research, an award-winning international quarterly of the social sciences, has been mapping the landscape of intellectual thought since 1934. Most issues are theme-driven, combining historical analysis, theoretical exploration and reportage in rigorous and engaging discussions by some of the world's leading scholars and thinkers. Our periodic series on Central and Eastern Europe was initiated in 1987 to bring the work of Central and Eastern European scholars to the attention of our English-reading audience. With the cataclysmic changes in the region, this series has adapted and expanded its scope, addressing the issues faced by the countries of the former Soviet bloc as well as by other countries also in the process of a transition to democracy.

Social Research also publishes the proceedings from our ongoing series of conferences. Each conference aims to enhance public understanding of a critical and contested issue by examining that issue in a broad intellectual and historical context, through the lenses of many different disciplines. The proceedings of these conferences are published in special issues of Social Research, and many subsequently as books.
