Above all, ERS OPEN supports our goal to further expand our growing readership from other parts of the world.

ERS aims to provide an interdisciplinary academic forum for the presentation of research and theoretical analysis, drawing particularly on sociology, social policy, anthropology, political science, international relations, geography, history, social psychology and cultural studies.

ERS Open is an exciting new development for the journal and it will no doubt evolve as the landscape of journal publishing is transformed over the coming period.
