Wednesday, March 5, 2014 - 00:00

Beginning late 2013 the Irish Journal of Sociology underwent an editorial transition. The new editorial home of the journal is the Department of Sociology at Maynooth University. The Editors, who will serve a 3-year term, are Brian Conway and Jane Gray (from September 2014).

The wider Maynooth University -based editorial team includes Asia Rutkowska (Book Reviews Editor) and Ivan Privalko (Editorial Assistant). Lucy Michael (University of Hull) has been appointed as the journal’s first Regional Editor, UK. The Editor is supported by a new 11-member Editorial Board as well as a team of 18 new Associate Editors. Together, the editorial structure of the journal involves 34 people representing 29 institutions, 4 world regional contexts, and 9 nationalities, the most geographically and intellectually diverse structure in the journal’s history.
The Irish Journal of Sociology is an international peer-reviewed core journal published by Manchester University Press and is the official journal of the Sociological Association of Ireland. It was established in 1991 for the purpose of stimulating, communicating, and advancing sociological research about Irish society as well as publishing high quality papers, reflecting the theoretical, substantive, and empirical range of the discipline, that are not related to Ireland. It also publishes solicited book reviews and pieces in four new in-brief sections: archives, databases, debates, and trends.
