Title: Sociologia, Revista da Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto

Editor: Carlos Manuel Gonçalves

Aims: Sociologia’s main goal is promoting sociology in Portugal, understood both as systematic knowledge of social realities and as professional and social practice. It has sought to stimulate dialogue between those who produce scientific work within the University and sociologists who deal with a diverse range of activities in wider society, without forgetting all those who require a systematized knowledge of Portuguese social reality.

Areas of interest: Sociology; Social Sciences

• History: Sociologia emerged in 1991 as a scientific publication in the field of sociology. Its initial aim was contributing for the consolidation of teaching and research developed within the Sociology course of Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto (Faculty of Arts, University of Porto) and the Instituto de Sociologia (Institute of Sociology), created in 1985/86 and 1989 respectively. In 2011 the journal became biannual in order to achieve higher agility relatively to the dynamics of scientific production, as well as to match the parameters established by indexation bases.

Frequency: 2 issues per year

Abbreviated title: Sociologia

• Sociologia publishes articles in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish.
