Socioscapes. International Journal of Societies, Politics and Cultures is mainly based on multiple considerations and interdisciplinary dialogues that would benefit from a specific structure, explained in what follows.
Each issue of the journal opens with an Editorial, summarising the content of the “Topics” section. The latter collects the contributions of the main section, selected via periodical call for papers. The Editorial also introduced the themes dealt with in the articles of the different sections. The section on “Topics” consists of three sub-sections: epistemological issues concerning the different approached employed to discuss the main theme of the issue; central topic; and keywords used to look at the central topic.
There follows a section including research, interventions, and works in progress welcoming contributions and reflections about the issues raised in the journal’s “Aims and scopes”. The contributions included in the section titled theory and critical research all address possibilities for theory and research outside the mainstream, with particular emphasis on issues of social change.
The section conflicts, resistances, and voices focuses on personal accounts documenting the lived experience of subaltern subjects.
The subsequent sections feature reprints and represented: old and new classics, a series of keywords where international invited scholars are asked to discuss a specific theme, and reviews and portraits.
