|Edited by||Sarah Green, Mike Michael, Michael Burawoy, Beverley Skeggs|
The Sociological Review is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal covering all aspects of sociology, including anthropology, criminology, philosophy, education, gender, medicine, and organization. The journal is published by SAGE Publications; before 2017 it was published by Wiley-Blackwell. It 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.
