The International Journal of the Sociology of Language is a peer-reviewed academic journal covering the field of sociology of language. It was established in 1974 by Joshua Fishman who has served many years as editor-in-chief,[1] now working closely with by Ofelia Garcia Otheguy. Each issue is dedicated to a single topic within the scope of the journal's field, such as "Sociolinguistic Issues in Azerbaijan" and "The Official Language Minorities in Canada". Each issue also publishes a book review and many issues also include a study relating to the sociology of endangered languages or small language communities. The journal is published by Walter de Gruyter.

The European Reference Index for the Humanities categorizes it in the "INT2" sub-category ("international publications with significant visibility and influence in the various research domains in different countries").[2] The journal is abstracted and indexed by International Bibliography of the Social Sciences, MLA International Bibliography, IBR Internationale Bibliographie der Rezensionen geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlicher Zeitschriftenliteratur, and Anthropological Literature.[3]
