History of the journal
The journal ex aequo was created by the Portuguese Association of Women’s Studies in 1999. It was a thematic journal until 2007, dealing with themes within areas such as Philosophy, Social Psychology, Sociology, History, Anthropology, Theology, Communication Sciences, Law, Sports, Theatre, Plastic Arts, Educational Sciences, Political Science, Health and Economics.
After 2007 ex aequo changed its thematic character. Each number now includes a Thematic Dossier, a section of Studies and Essays and a section of Bibliographical reviews.
The journal has mainly dealt with social problems and social dimensions such as citizenship practices, sports, literary production, social representations, scientific research, democracy and political participation, media, associative activities and work and employment.
The journal was published by Celta Publishers from 1999 until 2003 and started to be published by Afrontamento Publishers in 2004, thus making possible to keep it present in commercial circles.
