Basic information

The Revista de Sociologia e Política is a quarterly publication of the Postgraduate Program in Political Science of the Departament of Political Science of the Paraná Federal University, in Brazil.

Created in 1993, it appears in the months of of March, June, September and December.

From issue 1 (November 1993) to issue 29 (November 2007) the references of the Revista de Sociologia e Política included only numbers. From the edition of June 2009 on, the Revista is referenced with volume and number: v. 16, n. 30. Such a change has been caused by an editorial innovation: due to the great amount of articles presented to evaluation and publication, when needed and possible the Revista will publish an exclusively electronic, supplementary issue - whose reference demands the indication of the volume. After three years, the continuous increase of the proposed articles made ​​us to incorporate this additional number at the regular schedule of the periodical, making the journal quarterly since volume 21, number 45.

Open to scientific debate, the Revista de Sociologia e Política intends to be a pluralist space to divulge the results of substantive research, mainly of sociologists and political scientists. It publishes, preferably in Portuguese, original articles and bibliographic essays.

The Revista de Sociologia e Política give priority to manuscripts whose main theme pertains to political practice of social agents. Contributions from all the disciplinary areas of the Humanities and Social Sciences are welcome, whether in the form of theoretical discourse analysis, historical research, and especially, empirical research.

It has two fixed sections: a section for original articles, and a section for bibliographic essays

Positions and concepts emitted in signed articles are of the exclusive responsibility of their authors.

The abbreviated title of the journal is Rev. Sociol. Polit., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes, and bibliographical references and strips.
