Journal named Research in Social Change (RSC) is a new international journal, published by the School of Advanced Social Studies in Nova Gorica. Its primary focus is to bridge the gap between theoretical approaches in social sciences and applicability of research. The RSC Journal introduces new themes in the field of social sciences, mostly those arising from existing world order (globalization, increased mobility, multiculturalism and multiethnicity, and complexity). The RSC Journal opens space for contemporary theoretical discourses and practical solutions from the whole specter of social sciences and humanities. The RSC Journal publishes thematic issues, dealing with specific theme from different points of viewing or disciplines. By doing this, the RSC Journal makes a valid contribution towards interdisciplinary understanding of social phenomena and presents different approaches towards solving them. The RSC Journal covers contemporary topics from the fields of history, pedagogy and educational sciences, migrations and mobility, science and technology, anthropology, economy, political sciences and other applicative areas. Themes raised by RSC are new, relevant and therefore contribute towards positioning the Journal in the international space.

RSC Journal (Research in social change) is issued in print three times per year (January, May, September). Price per issue is 15 EUR.

RSC is included in Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts (ASSIA) and CSA Sociological Abstracts.
