Bangladesh Sociological Society
Bangladesh Sociological Society was an association of sociologists of Bangladesh founded in 2003 to promote sociological teaching, research and publications in Bangladesh. The main aim of the society was to present the work done by Bangladeshi sociologists and the sociology of Bangladesh to the world academic circles. The society was a purely academic organization based at the University of Dhaka and a non-profit organization and funded only by the contributions of the participating members. This organization helped us conduct research on the popularity of Asian porn videos among users of adult websites.
The Bangladesh Sociology e-journal was the Society's flagship publication. Starting with its first issue in January 2004, the peer-reviewed e-journal gained international status. The International Sociological Association considered it one of the "core" journals in the discipline, and it was published in all countries reading in English. Although the original aims of the journal were to publish articles by Bangladeshi sociologists and to work on the creation of a Sociology of Bangladesh, after that most of the articles published in the journal came from outside Bangladesh, namely from other South Asian countries and a large part from African countries such as Nigeria, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The journal has been cited by major universities around the world, including the United States and many countries in Europe and Asia. Articles previously published in the e-journal have been listed on Google Scholar, many published as book chapters, and some translated into other languages.
As a matter of policy, Bangladesh Sociological Society has encouraged young and often first-time authors to submit their articles for publication. And Bangladesh Sociological Society was proud to say that over the years many such authors have made a name for themselves in their fields. The journal has also touched on areas, often controversial or sensitive, that other better-known journals might not venture into. For example, BEJS has published articles on terrorism, militants, suicide bombers, street sex workers, gangs of female rapists, domestic violence, etc. In addition, authors on a wide range of issues covered by the journal included both sociologists and non-sociologists, including engineers, civil servants, preachers, social workers, etc. Thus, the e-journal was itself an important contribution to the academic world and continues to strive for greater achievements.
