Civic Sociology is an open access journal from the University of California Press that aims to reconstruct the disciplinary knowledge of sociology by re-focusing research in three particular directions oriented to:

  • Problem-solving and professional practice

  • Local and regional issues

  • Normative and ethical reflection

The journal’s goal is to reinvigorate sociology as a profession—one that is not exclusively academic but also works in local communities to solve problems. In so doing, it intends to highlight the complex ways in which global dynamics shape local/regional events, and vice versa.

The journal also aims to make sociological research more relevant and effective within professional, policy, and public forms of engagement, by solving rather than just explaining or describing social problems. The focus on local and regional issues grounds these challenges within the particularities of places and history, highlighting connections between the local, national and global.
