Aims and scope

Developed by the Institute of Sociology at Nicolaus Copernicus University as an international platform for sociological discourse on Central and Eastern European countryside development, EEC publishes research on the CEE countryside rather than research by CEE researchers. The journal covers social theory and analysis on two levels: comparative research on the European countryside, and the CEE countryside in international perspective. Concentrating on the present, EEC articles examine themes reflecting recent and significant changes in the CEE countryside from a cross-disciplinary view point. The journal is essential reading for sociologists, economists, political scientists and social policy analysts wishing to keep abreast of the very latest debates concerning the countryside in this part of Europe.

The aim of EEC is to provide a medium for the publication of original papers covering the entire span of sociological thought and research concerning the Central and Eastern European countryside. The Editors are particularly keen to publish work on current developments in research and analysis.

Peer Review Policy:
All research articles in this journal have undergone peer review based on editorial screening and anonymized refereeing.
