Nordic Journal of Social Research

The Nordic Journal of Social Research (NJSR) is an English-language and open-access, net-based journal that disseminates scholarly investigation and debate related to social research in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Centrally, this journal publishes both theoretical and empirical peer-reviewed articles that examine one of the Nordic countries or compare them, or offer comparisons of the Nordic countries with other parts of the world. Further, the NJSR aims to provide a broad selection of critical reviews on Nordic research on the social sciences and the chance for readers to submit their comments on the journal's content. The chief intention is to make use of the flexibility of the online medium in order both to facilitate a wider readership for Nordic research projects and to shorten significantly the normally lengthy period between the conclusion of a project and its publication, specifically by forgoing the publication of issues and by publishing articles individually as soon as they are ready.
