The Journal of Comparative Research in Anthropology and Sociology – Compaso is an online, open access, peer-reviewed publication edited by the Department of Sociology, University of Bucharest.
Compaso aims to support the exploration of the mutual constitution of social realities and forms of knowledge, by drawing attention to their multiplicity and complicity in action.
The Journal publishes original research encouraging a comparative approach that musters and confronts multiple strands of theoretical orientation, methods, materials, pieces of research or other social realities. We encourage the submission of research articles that answer theoretically informed questions with sound argumentation based on empirical data, using qualitative or quantitative analyses. The Journal also publishes research notes, review articles, theoretical essays, and book reviews relevant for comparative research.
Each Journal issue is centered on a specific topic, announced by a Call for Papers. Articles on other topics which are relevant to the mission of JCRAS are also accepted.
Young researchers and doctoral students in Sociology and Anthropology are especially welcome.
