Research Blog Recommendation (2): Work in Progress

Blogs are always work in progress. Ideally, the endless format of blogging allows to continuously revise and add to previous lines of thought and argument. Ironically, the blog “Work in Progress” mostly presents concise summaries of already published sociological studies in the fields of economy, work and inequality. The title nevertheless fits, not only because of its nod to a politically progressive undertone but also because the end of a research project is – at best – the beginning of some policy changes.

The blog is co-sponsored by four different sections of the American Sociological Association (ASA) and intends “to disseminate sociological research and findings to the general public, with a particular emphasis on contributing to policy debates.”

At a glance:

  • Work in progress features blog posts summarizing recently published sociological studies on the economy, work and inequality.
  • Best category or series: “Friday Roundup” presents a selection of interesting articles on sociological topics (example)
  • URL: workinprogress.oowsection.org
  • Social Media: @WIPsociology | Facebook-Page
