From Introduction to Vol. 1 No 1 (2010)
Welcome to the first issue of the Warsaw Forum of Economic Sociology, a new journal published by the Warsaw School of Economics (Szkoła Główna Handlowa, or SGH).
Our aim is to become a wide-ranging discussion forum for scholars
interested in theoretical and empirical issues in socio-economic
studies, with a particular emphasis on questions related to Central and
Eastern Europe (CEE).
We certainly acknowledge the numerous, valuable scholarly
publications in global circulation dealing with socio-economics in the
CEE countries. But these are spread out over various periodicals, none
of which is based on an approach such as we envisage. Our approach
combines the two dimensions, regional and thematic. Our aim is to
investigate socio-economic issues in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Warsaw Forum of Economic Sociology welcomes contributions
dealing with socio-economic issues broadly defined. We see the journal
as an academic platform where scholars of various social science
disciplines engage in debate with the aim of establishing
interdisciplinary connections, stimulating new and variegated research
that closes gaps among separate academic departments. We seek articles
that focus on theoretical and empirical aspects of socio-economic
transformations and current socio-economic reality. We encourage
prospective authors to contact our editors and to send us your work
(firstname.lastname@example.org). Let our journey begin.
