 Presentation 

The journal Sociologia emerged in 1991 as a scientific publication in the field of sociology, on an annual basis, and associated with the consolidation of teaching and scientific production in the first degree in Sociology of Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto (Faculty of Arts, University of Porto), created in 1985/86 and the Instituto de Sociologia (Institute of Sociology), created in 1989.

Its main intention is addressing the social issues of broad scope and according to various theoretical perspectives in order to promote the cultivation of Sociology in Portugal, either as systematic knowledge of social realities and as social and professional practice. Has sought to establish a dialogue between those who, within the University, promote scientific work and those who, like other professionals in sociology, deal with diverse activities in the global society, without forgetting those who labor in the other frames and that require a systematized knowledge of Portuguese social reality.

It has been, throughout their editions, a specialized journal, once it conveys research in sociology, but not limited to a specific field of this science. Collect theorizing and empirical studies with the necessary and possible social observation in the different specializations in sociology.

At present, Sociologia seeks to provide to each edition a greater coherence, as well as the participation of authors from other institutional sources. The assumption that the intersection of perspectives, dialogue and intertextual cumulative and reification of scientific knowledge will be enriched with the plurality of inputs remains.

In 2011, the periodicity of the journal became biannual as a result of the need to promote greater update in publications and agility on the relationship with the scientific production, as wall as to match the parameters established by indexation bases.
