The journal intends to advance knowledge about a comprehensive range of collective actions, social movements and other forms of political and social contention. Its main purposes are to offer a multidisciplinary forum to scholars from different fields and to bridge the gap between them, within and across the social sciences and humanities. Social protest emerges from a complexity of phenomena. Different research traditions have developed dissimilar, and sometimes divergent, sets of analytical tools through which to explore social actions, social movements, social protest and other forms of contention.

These differences are often paralleled by a priori epistemological endeavours and ontological claims about the nature of the object of study, the relevance of its proprieties, and the appropriate level of analysis. The aim of this special issue (Volume 2.1), co-edited by Giovanni A. Travaglino and Brian Callan, is to offer the reader a series of papers which explore, problematize, and account for the different methodologies, empiricisms, and theoretical claims of different approaches involved in the study of social protest.
