The Journal of Social Ontology (JSO) is an interdisciplinary journal devoted to social ontology and collective intentionality. JSO features scholarly work pertaining to the basic structures of the social world from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including moral, social, and political philosophy, anthropology, cognitive science, economics, history, law, political science, and psychology. The topics that JSO covers range from small-scale everyday interactions to encompassing societal institutions, from expert teams to hierarchical organizations, and from unintended consequences to institutional design. The journal provides a forum for exchanges between scholars of diverse disciplinary and methodological backgrounds. In addition to major articles, JSO publishes review essays, discussion articles, and book reviews.
