What Types of Papers Get Published in the Journal of Sociology, 1965-2008?
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an analysis of all articles published in the Journal of Sociology (formerly the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Sociology) between 1965 and 2008 (excluding book reviews). The aim is to empirically identify trends in paper characteristics in terms of what is being published (country of focus, subject area, and methodological approach). Findings show that topic areas have changed in popularity over time; and most recently there is a higher proportion of qualitative empirical papers. Information such as this can inform editorial practices and serve to inform the readership on the nature of the journal.
