The Journal on Masculinities and Social Change (known by its Spanish acronym MCS) is an Open Acces four-monthly journal that publishes research outcomes with significant contributions to masculinities and their influence on social transformations. MCS does not only collect research outcomes from different disciplines and methodological approaches, but also research carried out by interdisciplinar research teams. In this line, disciplinar and intedisciplinar works related to masculinities studies will be welcomed.
This scientific Journal emerges from the lack of journals about masculinities in Spain and Latin America which are indexed into international Social Sciences databases such as the Social Science Citation Index and SCOPUS. MCS wants to be a complete and reliable source of information on research and theoretical contributions on the field of masculinities. So, in this way, the journal will be essential reading for scientists, researchers, educators, and other key agents who wish to keep abreast of the latest developments in the masculinities studies.
MCS is a multilingual journal and publish articles in English, Spanish, Catalan, Euskera and Galician. It aims to be indexed and abstracted as soon as possible in International Social Sciences databases such as the Social Science Citation Index.
MCS is currently indexed in SCOPUS whose reviewers affirmed: "This is probably the leading journal in the field of "masculinities" research. The papers published here are very well-cited in the global social science literature".
