Abstract

Notwithstanding of the profound impact of sociology on the study of organizations, the overall flow of contributions made by sociologists is rather limited. This field is now identified with the business and management schools, whose embers contribute most of the current publications on organizations. Nevertheless, most of those scholars primarily focus on business firms, and prefer practical problems. They tend to look at organizational issues from a management’s perspective, and they study topics at the micro level of organizational behavior. This paper presents data on journal articles in six major periodicals, for the entire period of 1986-1996, indicating those trends.
