The Journal on Masculinities and Social Change (known by its Spanish acronym MCS) is an Open Acces four-monthly journal that aims to publish 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 interdisciplinary research teams. In this line, disciplinary and interdisciplinary works related to masculinities studies are welcomed.
This scientific Journal emerges from the lack of journals about masculinities in Spain and Latin America which are indexed in 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 to 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 masculinities studies.
MCS is a multilingual journal and publishes articles in English and Spanish.
