Journal of Civil Society
An Outlet for Scholarship and Debate on Civil Society, the Journal of Civil Society (JCS) has set out in May 2005 to enhance our understanding of civil society.
Since then, JCS has made great strides in pursuing its goal of becoming the major outlet for current thinking on civil society. In addition to publishing peer-reviewed articles by such authors as Joe Gelaskiewicz, Lesley Hustinx, Ronald Inglehart, Mary Kaldor, John Keane, Beate Kohler-Koch, Hakon Lorentzen, Ebenezer Obadare, and Jan Scholte, JCS has provided space for ongoing scholarship and invited debates surrounding such topics as developments in civil society in China, Russia and other parts of the world, conceptual and measurement challenges, and third sector Europeanization. Special thematic issues have focused, among others, on European civil society and participation and volunteering and social activism.
Founding Editor-in-chief and CSI’s Academic Director Helmut K. Anheier brought JCS with him from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) to the Centre of Social Investment (CSI) at Heidelberg University, where it now has its home.
Managing Editor of JCS is Regina List, papers should be submitted to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The journal’s publisher Routledge/Taylor and Francis has applied for JCS’s inclusion in the Thomson Reuters Social Science Citation Index, the sign of approval for any new journal.
- We are increasing the frequency of publishing from three issues per year to four. To boost these efforts, we have also reorganized the Editorial Board with a number of new members and created a Senior Editorial Committee.
