SOCIETY REGISTER is an international peer reviewed journal that publishes in English empirical, conceptual, and theoretical articles that make substantial contributions to the field in all areas of social sciences including sociology, economics, political science, psychology, cultural studies, education, and social policy. SOCIETY REGISTER is published in partnership with the Department of Sociology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The journal has received honorary patronage of Polish Society of Comparative Pedagogy and Sociological Committee of Poznan Society of Friends of Arts and Sciences. The mission of the Society Register Journal is to publish original works of interest to the social sciences disciplines in general, new theoretical approaches, empirical results of research that advance our understanding of fundamental social processes (and important methodological innovations), together with the practical application of those insights to the resolution of social issues. A key requirement for any author wishing to publish his/her work (be it empirically grounded, or purely theoretically oriented) needs to explicitly reflect upon the necessary underlying assumptions (axioms) and (if applicable) on how exactly a methodology was derived to study a given phenomena within a specific context of changing societies.

Call for Papers for the special issue of Society Register 2020


Edited by Prof. Hanna Mamzer (mamzer@amu.edu.pl)

The Society Register under the patronage of the Polish American Fulbright Commission facing an unusual situation caused by the rapid spread of COVID-19 virus decided to announce a call for papers commenting on the current situation. Corona Virus is causing a massive number of new cases and deaths each day worldwide. The situation has been evoked by a spread of the virus which has created an unusually tricky situation resulting in a high degree of general societal anxiety and stress. The scientific community in such circumstances has an exclusive responsibility in providing rational, scientifically based information, that may help the global society to deal with this threatening challenge. In this special issue of the Society Register, we would like to present the voices of the scientific community representing various disciplines and approaches. We will welcome a wide-spread opinion of those issues which will help the general public to understand the multiple aspects of the pandemic. Due to the importance of the project, we aim to publish articles very soon; therefore the procedure will require each author to review each of the other authors’ text (cross blind and double-blind reviews).

Children's Rights and Childhood Studies


Guest Editors

Urszula Markowska-Manista & Anna Odrowąż-Coates

The papers that focus on children's rights or use CR pedagogical lenses in order to explore both nature and culture and their interplay with the ideals of childcare, children's wellbeing, and children's upbringing will be given priority. 

Early childhood is of paramount importance for a child's development and later success in life, yet parents often do not have the knowledge and support to be the best parents for their children at this critical stage. Tired, exhausted and confused, anxious about their changing roles and changing obligations, parents may miss out on the positive aspects of parenthood and at the same time unknowingly affect their children in a negative way. Every developmental stage brings new challenges and questions for parents that often remain unanswered or inadequately addressed by pseudo-experts and heresy. This is an area for social pedagogues, social workers, psychologists, medical professionals, and social politicians to explore and clarify. The effects of natural and cultural pressures give us an interesting opportunity to reflect on the roots of traditions and praxis of childcare and parental practices observed in different cultures, in different parts of the world and in different epochs.
