The Irish Journal of Sociology is an international peer-reviewed core journal and is the official journal of the Sociological Association of Ireland. It was established in 1991 for the purpose of stimulating, communicating, and advancing sociological research about Irish society as well as publishing high quality papers, reflecting the theoretical, substantive, and empirical range of the discipline, that are not germane to Ireland. In addition, the journal seeks submissions for its new in-brief sections: archives, databases, debates, overviews, and trends. It also publishes research notes and solicited book reviews.

Although the journal's readership is primarily sociologists, it also seeks to appeal to - and welcomes submissions from - scholars in other social science disciplines including anthropology, geography, politics, social policy, social work, and social care. The journal seeks to publish quantitative and qualitative or mixed-method work. The journal is particularly interested in attracting comparative papers having to do with other small societies, but which need not necessarily be related to Ireland.
