About the Journal


The Philippine Sociological Review (PSR) is the official journal of the Philippine Sociological Society (PSS). It publishes articles that advance theoretical, empirical and methodological studies focusing on, but not limited to, the Philippine society. The journal encourages submissions that challenge conventional scholarship, propose novel ways of understanding contemporary social worlds, as well as manuscripts that foster conversations across disciplines. All manuscripts are double-blind reviewed.

PSR also publishes book reviews, research reports, interviews, and commissioned commentaries. Commission on Higher Education recognizes the PSR as an accredited research journal.

PSR is published annually.


PSR publishes five types of manuscripts:

Journal Article
These are double-blind peer reviewed articles that make a scholarly contribution to the field of sociology. Journal articles are 6,000-8,000 words in length.

Research Report
An article published as a research report are pieces that present work-in-progress or those oriented towards practical sociology. Research reports are not double-blind reviewed but have been thoroughly reviewed by the editor/s.

Book Review
PSR main issues feature at least one book review of a recent (less than three years old) publication focusing on themes relevant to sociological studies. Book reviews are commissioned.

In exceptional cases, the PSR board may commission a commentary from a sociologist/s who can provide timely analysis on topics relevant to contemporary scholarship.

These are featured conversations between leading specialists on the field covered by the special issue and a sociologist selected by the editorial team. Interviews are commissioned.
