Vanderstraeten R. (2010) Scientific communication: Sociology journals and publication practices. Sociology 44: 559–576.
The rise of scientific specializations and disciplines depends on the formation of specialized scientific communities. The establishment of specialized scholarly journals facilitates the formation of such communities. Publications, especially articles in specialized journals, have become institutionalized as the “ultimate” form of scientific communication. Specialized journals fulfill a key role in the scientific disciplines. This paper provides an analysis of these communication practices within the discipline of sociology, and sketches how these communication practices influence scientific research.
