Scope/Description:

From modernitys onset social theorists have been announcing the death of meaning at the hands of market forces impersonal power scientific expertise and the pervasive forces of rationalization and industrialization. Yet cultural structures and processes have proved surprisingly resilient. Relatively autonomous patterns of meaningsweeping narratives and dividing codes redolent if elusive symbols fervent demands for purity and cringing fears of pollutioncontinue to exert extraordinary effects on action and institutions. They affect structures of inequality racism and marginality gender and sexuality crime and punishment social movements market success and citizen incorporation. New and old new media project continuous symbolic reconstructions of private and public life.As contemporary sociology registered the continuing robustness of cultural power the new discipline of cultural sociology was born. How should these complex cultural processes be conceptualized What are the best empirical ways to study social meaning Even as debates rage around these fieldspecific theoretical and methodological questions a broadly cultural sensibility has spread into every arena of sociological study illuminating how struggles over meaning affect the most disparate processes of contemporary social life.Bringing together the best of these studies and debates the American Journal of Cultural Sociology AJCS publicly crystallizes the cultural turn in contemporary sociology. By providing a common forum for the many voices engaged in meaningcentered social inquiry the AJCS will facilitate communication sharpen contrasts sustain clarity and allow for periodic condensation and synthesis of different perspectives. The journal aims to provide a single space where cultural sociologists can follow the latest developments and debates within the field.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?


III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
