  • Scientific publication and social sciences: 100 issues of the journal
           Sociologia, Problemas e Práticas

    • Authors: António Firmino da Costa, Susana da Cruz Martins, Sónia Cardoso Pintassilgo, Nuno Nunes, Helena Carvalho
      Abstract: This article analyses the importance of scientific journals in the constitution and development of scientific fields. It also analyses a set of issues that these journals currently face. It takes as a case study the journal Sociologia, Problemas e Práticas. This journal emerged in the process of institutionalization of the field of sociology in Portugal. It is now publishing its 100th issue, after 37 years of continued publication. This article analyses the context, profile and phases of this scientific journal that has sociology as its main focus, but is also open to interdisciplinary contributions from other social sciences. This article also addresses a number of problems that these academic journals are presently facing: open access scientific publication; peer review; the new scientific publishing platforms; and the tension between international publishing and contextual social impact.

  • Social power: analytical dimensions

    • Authors: Rui Pena Pires
      Abstract: This paper proposes a multidimensional reconstruction of the concept of social power, which is associated with a typology of social forms of exercising domination and resistance. First, we suggest a distinction between interactive power, episodic or dissuasive, and structural power, as authority or capacity. Second, we propose an adaptation and theoretical revision of the typology of social forms of power by John Scott, distinguishing between domination by restriction or persuasion and between resistance by opposition or pressure.

  • Professional placements, identities and skills of sociologists in Portugal

    • Authors: Pedro Abrantes, Rui Banha, Madalena Ramos, Alexandra Aníbal, Paula Urze
      Abstract: This article aims to contribute to the knowledge and reflection on the professional identities and representations of sociologists per se and in their relationship with others professionals within the framework of organizational dynamics. Some key issues on the development of this field in Portugal are addressed through the analysis of the responses to the “Professional Skills and Practices of the Graduates in Sociology” survey, which was launched in 2019. The effects of generational differences, training path and professional placement (working within or outside the academy) on identity and representations, namely of what it means to be a sociologist, are explored.

  • Female teachers’ double burden during the pandemic: overcoming
           challenges and dilemma between career and family

    • Authors: Priyono Tri Febrianto, Siti Mas'udah, Lutfi Apreliana Megasari
      Abstract: The coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) challenged educators, especially female teachers, as they shouldered the double burden of being both teachers and spouses. This study articulates the online teaching experiences of Indonesian women that work as elementary school teachers. Moreover, the study explores strategies implemented by these teachers to overcome this career-family dichotomy. Carried out in Indonesia’s East Java province, this descriptive mixed method study surveyed 347 married female teachers, 212 of which have school-aged children. Results showed that home-based online teaching created additional burdens for female teacher and they experienced workload resulting from this dual role, further emphasized by the expectation of domestic duties that are primarily enforced on women. Several strategies, including time management, involving their husbands in domestic chores — that strengthened their social support —, and simultaneously teaching their own children along with their students, were implemented. Therefore, couple’s negotiations regarding role division are needed to achieve gender equality within familial structures.

  • Astroturfing and Spanish political debate from social networks: a case

    • Authors: Sergio Arce-García, Elias Said-Hung
      Abstract: The objective of the work is to estimate the use of astroturfing as a strategy to promote political debates in Spain through Twitter. A total of 89,528 twits associated with the discussion generated around the holidays of the First Vice President and the Minister of Equality of the Government of Spain, Pablo Iglesias, and Irene Montero, are collected and analyzed between August 14 and 20, 2020. The case studied allows seeing a non-electoral political scenario based on astroturfing and nano-influencers capable of distributing, amplifying, and flooding social networks such as Twitter, disinformative and confrontational content.

    • Authors: Andoni Eizagirre, Javier Ignacio Garcia Fronti
      Abstract: This article looks at the new dynamics and rules that are currently / now in place in universities’ research activities. The framework of analysis supports the view that the various goals of academic research should be clearly defined in the light of European research and innovation policies. In order to better understand the nature and scope of the academic research policies in particular, the author looks / authors look in depth at the main European documents on policies regarding research/innovation and universities. Both the diversification of the objectives set out therein / revealed thereby, and the tensions in relation to the meaning / significance and purpose of research and innovation, are reflected in a growing argument about the articulation of academic research with social and economic demands / requirements.
