"Work, employment and society encourages exploration across the boundaries of industrial sociology, industrial relations, labour economics, applied psychology, and organisational analysis. Work, employment and society is where scholars who refuse to fit 100% inside the traditional moulds feel most at home." Jill Rubery, Manchester School of Management, UK

"Work, employment and society has become, to my mind, the leading international journal for researchers in economic sociology. It provides the rare combination of a pluralistic approach to research methodology, with a rigorous emphasis on quality. Its articles have set the agenda for many of the key research debates in recent years." Duncan Gallie Nuffield College, Oxford, UK

"Work, employment and society is a major forum for the latest sociological research on work. I eagerly await each issue, and always find something of interest." Arne L. Kalleberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

Work, employment and society is an official journal of the British Sociological Association. Work, employment and society analyses all forms of work and their relation to wider social processes and structures, and to quality of life. It embraces the study of the labour process; industrial relations; changes in labour markets; and the gender and domestic divisions of labour. It supports contemporary, historical and comparative studies and both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.

Work, employment and society (WES) is a leading international peer-reviewed journal of the British Sociological Association which publishes theoretically informed and original research on the sociology of work.

Work, employment and society covers all aspects of work, employment and unemployment and their connections with wider social processes and social structures. The journal is sociologically orientated but welcomes contributions from other disciplines which addresses the issues in a way that informs less debated aspects of the journal's remit, such as unpaid labour and the informal economy. The journal adheres to high standards of scholarship but sees no conflict between accessibility and scholarships; submissions must be clear and free from jargon.
