Distinktion: Scandinavian Journal of Social Theory is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes papers which make a substantial contribution to contemporary social theory. The journal particularly investigates the interface between social and political theory, often explored in thematic issues. Distinktion invites articles from sociology, political science, cultural and legal studies, anthropology, and philosophy that provide original perspectives on the social. Launched in 2000 and based in a Scandinavian context, Distinktion creates a space for theoretical contestation that includes both continental and Anglo-American traditions. The journal features theory articles as well as more empirical contributions, but empirical papers should outline implications for social theory. Distinktion publishes standard articles as well as review essays.
