Journal of BSS
The society’s principal publication is the Bangladesh e-Journal of Sociology. Since its initial edition in January 2004, the peer-reviewed e-Journal has grown in prominence across the world.
Although the journal’s initial goals were to publish articles authored by Bangladeshi sociologists and collaborate toward a “Sociology of Bangladesh,” authors from other South Asian countries and African countries are now contributing a large portion of the articles published in the journal. It is a peer-reviewed publication that aims to reach a global audience over the internet.
