The Greek Review of Social Research (GRSR) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published bi-annually in digital and print form by the National Centre for Social Research (EKKE). The journal is fully open access and submissions are free of any charges. Published without interruption since 1969, GRSR is the oldest Greek journal for the social sciences and one of the first to adopt the blind peer review system.

The journal invites original submissions (max: 9000 words) from a theoretical, empirical, or policy perspective in the following subject areas: Social theory, Methods and techniques of social sciences, Sociology of institutions, Sociology of development and social transformation, Political Sociology, Urban Sociology, Rural Sociology, Sociology of the family, Sociology of education, Sociology of Work, Sociology of health, Social Anthropology, Political Science, Social Geography, Social Psychology, Demography, Criminology, Labour relations, Social integration and exclusion, Social Policy, Gender relations, Cultural Studies, Mass media & Communication Studies, Social networks. The Review also welcomes short doctoral dissertation presentations and book reviews in special sections (max: 2000 words).

Apart from its regular issues, the GRSR publishes three types of distinctive issues:

a) Special Issues consisting of collections of articles concerning specific subject areas contributing to the advancement of scientific dialogue in the relative area. These issues may be Greek or English. Proposals for such issues are submitted to the Editorial Committee and initially assessed regarding their significance, cohesion, and scientific worth, before undergoing the double-blind peer review. The reviewing process is followed by the Editorial Board in collaboration with the editors responsible for the general introduction. Special issues should not be longer than regular ones.

b) Subject Issues, decided upon by the Editorial Committee in view of submitted material or after a specific call for papers. The double-blind peer review is followed. Such issues may also contain non-related articles.

c) GRSR special publications. The Greek Review of Social Research may decide to publish and edit special issues. Such issues must be of particular scientific interest as regards their subject and scientific quality. They may include previously published articles or/and translations of foreign-language articles, providing these are deemed essential for the issues’ completeness. The contents of such issues are not subject to a double-blind peer-review process and therefore their authors cannot claim publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Such special issues are separately numbered and their publication does not follow a regular periodicity. 

The procedure from an article’s submission to its publication is monitored through the digital publication system. Following the successful completion of the review procedure, layout, and editing, articles are then digitally published.

GRSR is currently indexed by Scopus (Elsevier), Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Google Scholar, Crossref, SHERPA/RoMEO, International Sociological Association (ISA), OPENAIRE: Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe (EC-DG INFORMATION SOCIETY and MEDIA), European Website of Integration, Econbiz database.
