In 2018, the scientific-theoretical journal „Economy and Sociology” marks the 65th anniversary of its foundation, years of hard work, professionalism and dedication.
The journal „Economy and Sociology” was founded in 1953 by the Academy of Sciences of Moldovan SSR, Sociology Department of the Institute of Philosophy, Sociology and Law.A special contribution to the founding and development of the journal brought the correspondent member of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova, the founder of the sociological school in the Republic of Moldova, PhD in economics, Professor Andrei Timuș.

During 65 years the journal „Economy and Sociology” became a platform with authority for scholars in economics and sociology. Throughout these years, all aspects of economic and social development have been reflected in the pages of the journal: trends in the development of the national and global economy, living standards, social structure and quality of life of the population,etc. Over the last few years, more and more articles have been discussing the current issues of entrepreneurial development, economic competitiveness, innovation, financial stability,demographic dynamics, etc.

Thus, the journal has strengthened its position as a high-level scientific platform that debates the most current issues in the economic and social fields, an academic publication presenting the results of the original scientific research that adds value to the development of economic and sociological science.
The journal „Economy and Sociology” is positioned as an edition focused to the needs of specialists in the field, including practitioners, and indisputable offers the opportunity to receive current and qualitative information on new phenomena and trends in the national and world economy.
