Aims and Scope

Social Transformations in Chinese Societies (STICS), previously known as the Hong Kong Journal of Sociology, is the official journal of The Hong Kong Sociological Association (HKSA). 

This double-blind peer reviewed journal provides an academic venue for researchers on Chinese societies, from all over the world and from East Asia in particular, to disseminate their research findings and engage in intellectual debate on major issues related to Chinese societies, at a time when these are undergoing rapid and significant social, political, economic, and cultural changes. In so doing, Social Transformations in Chinese Societies aims to become the leading platform within the region to address theoretical, methodological, and substantive issues of a sociological significance about social transformations in Chinese societies.  

These issues are not only most relevant to Chinese societies but are also pertinent to broader theoretical reflection on micro and macro social, political, and economic changes. Although Social Transformations in Chinese Societies is the official journal of the Hong Kong Sociological Association, the journal appeals not only to sociologists but to more broadly-defined social scientists, including those interested in East Asian studies and development studies as a whole. The scope also extends to cover research on Chinese societies based upon different disciplines, such as history and anthropology.
