Online Initiatives from the International Sociological Association
Living Social Science – a new concept An online database for “state-of-the-art” entries in Sociology sociopedia.isa is a new concept in the production and dissemination of knowledge. It combines the best of two worlds: the opportunities the internet offers for rapid publication and the scientific quality guaranteed by thorough and imaginative editing and peer review. While experienced editors and peer review ensure the highest possible quality, the internet makes it possible to provide the most recent 'state-of-the-art' assessments. sociopedia.isa, then, offers 'living social science'.
sociopedia.isa is an online database with 'state-of-the-art' review articles in social sciences. It guarantees users that the reviews are up-to-date and will be updated on a regular basis. Each entry has a discussion section to supplement it.

The International Sociological Association is delighted to remind you of the re-launch of the ISA E-Bulletin. It moves to a new incarnation and future as the ISA eSymposium for Sociology The ISA eSymposium for Sociology is now more interactive, offering readers opportunities for making immediate comments on contributions. This medium not only allows the ISA to source visual and audio contributions from sociologists, it also allows them to archive past issues of the E-Bulletin and, in time, will be a platform that can contribute towards creating a data base of visual and audio work that sociologists produce. ISA eSymposium for Sociology is available for ISA members by logging in with their User ID and password. Simply click on the link below
