Revista Crítica de Ciências Sociais, a four-monthly publication of the Centre for Social Studies, publishes original papers presenting advanced research and creative theoretical thinking with respect to the Social Sciences and the Humanities. The journal favours works with a transdisciplinary approach and that contribute to the theoretical discussion, epistemological thinking and critical knowledge of contemporary reality on a global scale. Accepting submissions that cover all geographical contexts, RCCS gives special emphasis to works that contribute to the Global South debate. Submissions are subject to a rigorous double-blind peer review process.

RCCS mainly publishes issues focused on specific themes, assigned to qualified researchers within their areas of expertise, although it also publishes an average of one non-thematic issue per year. Submissions are subject to a rigorous double-blind peer review process.

Revista Crítica de Ciências Sociais is part of the network Eurozine and is indexed in Scopus, Web of Science-Clarivate Analytics (Emerging Sources Citation Index - ESCI and SciELO Citation Index), SciELO, Qualis-CAPES, DOAJ, ERIH Plus, EBSCO, Francis, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences, Latindex, Pascal, Sudoc, Sociological Abstracts, Worldcat and Bielefield Academic Search Engine.
