Research in Social Change (RSC) is an interdisciplinary journal aiming to engage a wider academic audience by questioning and exploring the nature and impacts of changes in social institutions, changes in social behaviour and changes in social relations as they occur on a daily basis. RSC publishes original research articles with a clear contribution to the social sciences and here discussed through empirical or theoretical argumentations while the editors especially encourage new methodological approaches as well as innovative theoretical considerations. RSC welcomes but is not limited to, the contributions of young and prospective academics both at the start or on the advancement of their careers. In doing so, RSC aims to become a vivid platform discussing up-to-date topics dealing with the most prominent themes within the social sciences.

Engaging in discussions on the topic of social change, RSC aims to better understand the phenomenon through varied perspectives, including, but not being limited to:

  • sociology, 
  • political science, 
  • history, 
  • anthropology, 
  • philosophy,
  • psychology,
  • economics, 
  • law and administration,
  • business & management, 
  • computer sciences and information technology,
  • cultural studies,
  • education,
  • gender/women's studies,
  • theology & religion,
  • library & information science,
  • environmental studies and 
  • all other related fields.

RSC is not thematically or geographically limited, however, it encourages thematically rounded contributions (eg. through a guest edition on set thematic issues).
