Research in Social Change is a relatively young journal which was established in 2008 by School of Advanced Social Studies in Nova Gorica, Slovenia with the first issue being published on January 2009. The Journal is published three times per year in printed form and it is included in Applied Social Science Index and Abstracts (ASSIA) and CSA Sociological Abstracts.
Currently, there is the 8th number approaching and we are happy to announce this call for papers for May 2011 issue.
The primary focus of the RSC Journal is to bridge the gap between theoretical approaches in social sciences and applicability of research. The RSC Journal introduces new themes in the field of social sciences, mostly those arising from existing world order (globalization, increased mobility, multiculturalism and multiethnicity, complexity, risk and consumption).
The RSC Journal opens space for contemporary theoretical discourses and practical solutions from the whole spectre of social sciences and humanities. The RSC Journal also publishes thematic issues, dealing with specific themes from different points of viewing or disciplines. By doing this, the RSC Journal makes a valid contribution towards interdisciplinary understanding of social phenomena and presents different approaches towards solving them.
The RSC Journal covers contemporary topics from the fields of history, pedagogy and educational sciences, migrations and mobility, science and technology, anthropology, economy, political sciences, gambling studies and other applicative areas. Themes raised by RSC are new, relevant and therefore contribute towards positioning the Journal in the international space.
In order to ensure the academic standard of all published articles, the latter, before being officially accepted for publication, are anonymously reviewed by an independent reviewer from the respective field.

Please note that articles to be published in the upcoming issue of May 2011 must be submitted until 25th of February 2011 the latest. When writing their papers authors are kindly asked to follow the Instructions for authors as outlined at featured web site: http://www.fuds.si/en/dejavnosti/zaloznistvo/?v=research

The authors should submit their papers in electronic form to Mrs. Tamara Besednjak Valič, Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief, at tamara.besednjak[at]fuds.si.
