Sociologia e Ricerca Sociale (Sociology and Sociological Research), was founded in 1980 by a group of professors from different Italian universities and different branches of Sociology. The aim was to achieve two main goals. The first was to create a channel for communication among specialists not subject to academic limitation of any sort. The second was to pursue the project of a logically and methodologically based empirical research, focusing on one hand on the relations between scientific statute of social theory, and on the other on social intervention. The fundamental need for pluralism has guided the work of this review since it was founded. Italian and foreign authors from academic, research or professional backgrounds discuss themes and issues that range from social theory, sociology of communication, professions in the field, complex organizations, and social services, to labor rights and policies and sociology of the sciences and knowledge.
