Research on Finnish Society

About the journal

Research on Finnish Society, founded in 2007, is an annually published peer-reviewed journal focusing on research articles on, and relevant to, Finnish society. Its scope is multi-disciplinary, covering sociology, political science, and economics, as well as the other social sciences. The articles published in the journal are to be based on high-quality data and appropriate methods, quantitative or qualitative. In particular, the journal encourages submissions with a cross-national comparative or historical perspective. 

The journal accepts original manuscripts written in good English. Submissions are accepted throughout the year, but there will also be a call for papers for each annual volume. The editorial board evaluates the submitted articles and decides which manuscripts are to be sent for double-blinded peer review. Final decisions are made based on reviews obtained from at least two experts, and these reviews are also communicated to the author(s). The journal aims at a review cycle of eight weeks.

Research on Finnish Society is published both in print and online (open access). ISSN: 1796-8739.

The journal is published by the Society of Social and Economic Research in the Universities of Turku (Turun korkeakoulujen yhteiskunnallis-taloudellinen tutkimusyhdistys ry.) founded in 1957.
