This study provides an analysis of the texts that have been published in journal 'Sociologia/Slovak Sociological Review' and have formed its character. It takes a predominantly descriptive approach and aims to summarize the main historiographical facts that were related to the journal. The analytical part of this study consists mainly of an overview of themes and citations of articles that have been published during the four decades of its existence. There have been two milestones in the history of the journal: the onset of post-1968 'normalization', reflected in the review since 1971, and democratization after 1989, manifested in the following year. The study is divided into four parts, each dealing with one of the four decades. Promising beginnings were superseded by scientific communism during the 'normalization' period. Indications of change, connected with a critique of ideological and regime-serving sociology, came in the late 1980s and were followed soon after by the major break in 1989. The change of regime brought about not only the disappearance of Marxism but also did away with some of the most frequently researched topics of the former period. The new millennium has brought along the reflections on globalization and the emergence of new, non-traditional themes.
