About the Journal
Comparative Sociology is an international scholarly journal, published in six issues per year, dedicated to advancing comparative sociological analyses of societies and cultures, institutions and organizations, groups and collectivities, networks and interactions. All submissions for articles are peer-reviewed double-blind. The journal publishes book reviews and theoretical presentations, conceptual analyses and empirical findings at all levels of comparative sociological analysis, from global and cultural to ethnographic and interactionist. Submissions are welcome not only from sociologists but also political scientists, legal scholars, economists, anthropologists and others. Indeed, the journal is particularly keen to receive works of comparative political sociology, comparative legal sociology, comparative economic sociology and comparative cultural sociology.

Every year, several of our Free-Standing . students apply successfully to . programs elsewhere. Our Free-Standing . students may also apply to Columbia's . program; those who do will be assessed on the same basis as any sequential applicants currently doing elsewhere. Doing the Free-Standing . at Columbia neither gives an inside edge nor counts against an applicant. Over the past several years, we have admitted on average about one Free-Standing . student to our ./. program per year, though some years none, given the intense competition for places in our sequential program. Students intending to stay at Columbia for the . (either in English or in Comparative Literature) should apply as sequential students rather than as Free-Standing . students.
