The British Sociological Association supports selected publishing ventures. It belongs to a consortium that publishes the electronic journal: Sociological Research Online (SRo).
Sociological Research Online has been published quarterly on the World Wide Web since March 1996. Articles published in the journal are peer-reviewed by a distinguished Editorial Board and qualify for inclusion in the UK Research Assessment Exercise.
Sociological Research Online was established under the Electronic Libraries Programme (eLib). When funding ceased in September 1998, Sociological Research Online introduced institutional subscriptions in order to be able to continue publishing high quality sociology. The journal is still available without charge to individuals accessing it from non-institutional networks.
