Global Mapping of Sociologists

Feb 7 2018

The International Sociological Association has undertaken the development
of the "Global Map of Sociologists for Social Inclusion" (GMSSI) to create the
global database of sociologists.

GMSSI aims to identifyconnect, and enable global collaborations in sociology,
and support sociologists who encounter multiple barriers, economic and
political, which impede participation in global exchanges.

GMSSI aims to increase the visibility of sociologists and their knowledge
production and also be an important resource for sustained interaction with
the media on a range of issues.

Your participation is important to the success of GMSSI in building this
global sociological community.

To start:
Go to 
where we briefly explain what the site is about and where we offer a link to
sign in or sign up.

  • After logging in, you will see your profile in GMSSI.  This includes your
    name, institutional affiliation, email address, etc.  
  • Add a brief bio and a few keywords pertinent to your areas of expertise
    or interest.  (Note that the GMSSI site is designed so that your email
    address will not be visible to the public; you will control who sees it).  
  • Add a research project, course you teach or policy report you have
  •         Look for ISA conference presentations or journal articles by particular
    people or on particular subjects. GMSSI runs on the same Confex
    platform as ISA's conference management system. Anyone who has
    participated in recent ISA conferences can find their presentations
    through GMSSI, and as more people use GMSSI they might discover
    new opportunities for collaboration with other sociologists.
  •          Try the email, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn sharing links.


If you have any comments, feedback or suggestions please send it to We are keen to get your feedback and ways to improve
the system.

Looking forward to your participation and collaboration so that together we
build and share sociology across the globe.  Thanks in advance!
