Title variants
Languages of publication
The name of maritime sociology has been present in the Polish scientific discourse for some decades now. In the text the author proves that in the world scientific literature the caption is not present but there are many publications which refer to sociological research on maritime issues. The author concentrates on exploring how ‘sociology of maritime issues’ is conceptualized in academic journals articles. Records (including abstracts and in some cases full texts) of over two hundred and fifty articles published in 1933−2014 available through EBSCO databases were analyzed. The author addresses the problems discussed in them comparing the approaches to Polish maritime sociology as developed by professor Ludwik Janiszewski.
