Social Transformations in Chinese Societies (STICS) aims to become a leading platform to address theoretical, methodological, and substantive issues of sociological significance related to social transformations in Chinese societies.
These issues are not only relevant to Chinese societies but are also pertinent to broader theoretical reflection on micro and macro social, political, and economic change.
The journal appeals not only to sociologists but to more broadly-defined social scientists, including those interested in East Asian studies and development studies as a whole. The scope also extends to cover research on Chinese societies based on different disciplines, such as history and anthropology.
STICS is the official journal of The Hong Kong Sociological Association (HKSA).
