Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[Autom. eng. transl.] The introduction to the special issue of the Journal Sociology of Work, published in the year in which the forty-year anniversary of its birth occurs, traces the most representative themes of the life of the Journal. After recalling the reasons for its birth, an analysis of the main issues addressed by the magazine over the years is presented with an interdisciplinary approach. More precisely, it explores the role it has played in the diffusion of scientific knowledge with respect to the transformations of work, with reference to the dimensions of business organization, labor and welfare policies, industrial relations, consumption styles, of diversity in the workplace, presenting research conducted both in Italy and abroad. In this regard, we underline the international vocation that the magazine has had since the early years of activity. In the second part some changes are anticipated concerning Sociology of Work which, in the near future, will be presented with a renewed editorial appearance. Finally, the third part anticipates the most relevant contents of the essays published in the special issue, linking them to the history of the Journal and its specific characteristics.
