The BJS is devoted to empirical as well as theoretical research in sociology and related fields of study. It is published four times a year. The Berliner Journal für Soziologie was founded in 1991 as the first independent sociological journal in East Germany on initiative of the East German sociological society.
The journal is understood as a general sociological journal publishing contributions from diverse sociological fields, including all varieties of sociological topics.
Right from the start, it was the journal's declared aim to enhance the discussion and further solution of central sociological problems in the light of contemporary theoretical and societal developements.
Two questions have been and will be central to the journal: transformation and culture. Transformation processes in post socialist societies are one major focus.
Contemporary culture - new Media, urban society, democracy and the public, ethnicity and nationalism, pluralism of life forms - is the second major focus.
Due to the developements in these fields, the sociology of culture has recieved important impulses and new perspectives in comparative research. Research and analyses on transformation and culture will also form a vital part of the journal's future.
