The Sociological Review is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal covering all aspects of sociology, including anthropology, criminology, philosophy, education, gender, medicine, and organization. It is published by Wiley-Blackwell and is one of the three "main sociology journals in Britain", along with the British Journal of Sociology and Sociology, and the oldest British sociology journal.
Established in 1908 as a successor of the Papers of the Sociological Society, its founder and first editor-in-chief was Leonard Trelawny Hobhouse. As the first professor of sociology in the United Kingdom, Hobhouse had a central role in establishing sociology as an academic discipline, and The Sociological Review became an important forum in this regard, and generally as a forum for new liberal theory of the early 20th century.
