Basic information

The Revista de Sociologia e Política is a bi-annual publication of the Political Science staff of the Departament of Social Sciences of the Paraná Federal University, in Brazil.

Created in 1993, it appears in the months of June and November.

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.

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 critical reviews of recently edited works.

The Revista de Sociologia e Política give priority to manuscripts whose main theme pertains to politics and the political. Contributions from all the disciplinary areas of the Humanities and Social Sciences are welcome, whether in the form of theoretical essay, historical research, philosophical reflections or empirical research.

It has three distinct fixed sections: a dossier concerning a relevant theme in the Social Sciences, a section of diverse essays and articles, and a section for book reviews. It also keeps interchange with several periodicals in Brazil and abroad. When there's an opportunity, it will have a fourth section, called 'Fundamental Essays,' dedicated to the publication of classical articles and texts of Political Science.

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.
