The journal promotes sociolinguistics as a thoroughly linguistic and thoroughly social-scientific endeavour.

"What I like about the Journal of Sociolinguistics is its refreshingly broad interpretation of what constitutes sociolinguistics. This secular approach results in papers covering topics as disparate as New Zealand short vowels and gay dating advertisements, drawing on a range of critical frameworks from the variationist paradigm to critical discourse analysis. The result is a healthy heterogeneity where the tensions and conflicts between different approaches are not concealed or ignored but can be directly addressed."

"Covers with great rigor the broad range of topics that genuinely fall under the rubric of sociolinguistics. Within just a couple of years it has become THE journal to find out what is happening in the field." -
Walt Wolfram, North Carolina State University, USA

Given the social role of language, it stands to reason that one strand of language study should concentrate on the role of language in society.  Sociolinguistics has become an increasingly important and popular field of study, as certain cultures around the world expand their communication base and intergroup and interpersonal relations take on escalating significance.
