L'Année Sociologique is an academic journal of sociology established in 1898 by Émile Durkheim, who also served as its editor. It was published annually until 1925, changing its name to Annales Sociologiques between 1934 and 1942. After World War II it returned to its original name. Durkheim established the journal as a way of publicizing his own research and the research of his students and other scholars working within his new sociological paradigm.


Until 1969 a part of the journal was classified into three groups: (1) anthropology and sociology, (2) empirical qualitative sociology, and (3) empirical quantitative sociology. The rest was dedicated to book reviews.[1] Durkheim wanted to use the journal to describe contents of the books reviewed.[2]

Modern journal[edit]

Although originally influenced by Émile Durkheim, the modern journal is based on accurate actual research in the history of the social sciences. Originally publishing in French only, the journal now also publishes translations from French and articles written in English.[3]
