American Sociological Review

The American Sociological Review is the most respected, wide-ranging, and widely circulated journal in sociology. Because of its reputation, it has first access to the best articles in the discipline. This is the journal on every sociologist's shelf. American Sociological Review publishes work of interest to the discipline in general: new theoretical developments, results of research that advance our understanding of the most fundamental social processes, and important methodological innovations. Like all ASA publications, American Sociological Review emphasizes exceptional quality. Unlike the ASA's more specialized journals, ASR focuses on works that have general bearing on the knowledge of society.

City & Community
March, June, September, December
City & Community, a joint creation of the American Sociological Association and its section on Community and Urban Sociology, is the first official ASA section journal. City & Community aims to advance urban sociological theory, promote the highest quality empirical research on communities and urban social life, and encourage sociological perspectives on urban policy. It welcomes contributions that employ quantitative and qualitative methods as well as comparative and historical approaches. The journal encourages manuscripts exploring the interface of global and local issues, locally embedded social interaction and community life, urban culture and the meaning of place, and sociological approaches to urban political economy. The journal also seeks articles on urban spatial arrangements, social impacts of local natural and built environments, urban and rural inequalities, virtual communities, and other topics germane to urban life and communities that will advance general sociological theory

The quality and quantity of sociological literature have increased to the point that the ASA has devoted an entire journal to book reviews. Contemporary Sociology is designed to give new thrust to criticism and reviewing within the field in a variety of formats such as review symposia and review essays. Contemporary Sociology publishes reviews and critical discussions of recent works in sociology and in related disciplines that merit the attention of sociologists. Since not all sociological publications can be reviewed, a selection is made to reflect important trends and issues in the field.

Directed to anyone interested in the latest sociological ideas and research, Contexts seeks to apply new knowledge, stimulate fresh thinking, and disseminate information. Its articles, both commissioned and unsolicited, synthesize key findings, weave together diverse strands of work, draw out implications for policy, and debate issues of controversy. The hallmarks of Contexts are accessibility, broad appeal, and timeliness. By design, it is not a technical journal, but a magazine for diverse readers who wish to be current about social science knowledge, emerging trends, and their relevance. It regularly publishes letters and opinions, brief notes on recent findings, feature articles with comments, and essay reviews of books. While significant as scholarship, articles published in Contexts will be prepared in an easy and engaging style. It aspires to be a meeting place for discussion among social scientists and the public.

Social Psychology Quarterly
March, June, September, December
Social Psychology Quarterly is the ASA's official journal in the field of social psychology. Focusing on society's impact on the individual and on individual interaction in small groups and communities, the journal gives special attention to such matters as attitude measurement, laboratory experiments, and theories of social processes.
Since the journal reaches many social psychologists who are not members of the ASA, it offers an important additional advertising market. SPQ publishes papers pertaining to the processes and products of social interaction. This includes the study of the primary relations of individuals to one another or to groups, collectivities, or institutions, and also the study of intra-individual processes in so far as they substantially influence, or are influenced by, social forces.

Society and Mental Health publishes original articles that apply sociological concepts and methods to the understanding of the social origins of mental health and illness, the social consequences for persons with mental illness, and the organization and financing of mental health services and care. Society and Mental Health publishes articles that advance the sociology of mental health and illness, stimulate further research, inform treatments and policy and reflect the diversity of interests of its readership.

Sociology of Education provides a forum for studies of education and human social development by scholars in all the social sciences and from all parts of the world. In publishing analyses of educational institutions and educational processes at all levels, its relevance extends to educational leaders and professionals of a wide variety. This journal is a response to the rapidly rising concern over education and human social development, both within the social sciences and beyond. Sociology of Education publishes papers on educational processes and on human development. The research may focus on the individual, institutions, and structural arrangements among institutions bearing on education and human development.

Sociology of Race & Ethnicity
January, April, July October
The official journal of ASA’s Section for Racial and Ethnic Minorities, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will publish the highest quality, cutting-edge sociological research on race and ethnicity regardless of epistemological, methodological, or theoretical orientation. While the study of race and ethnicity has derived from a broad and deep tradition of interdisciplinary, sociology indeed has often been at the forefront of scholarly understanding of the dynamics of race and ethnicity; yet, there exists no journal in sociology devoted to bringing together this important theoretical, empirical, and critical work. Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will provide a fulcrum upon which sociologically-centered work will swing as it also seeks to provide new linkages between the discipline of sociology and other disciplines and areas where race and ethnicity are central components.

Teaching Sociology, first published by the ASA in 1986, incorporated the ASA Teaching Newsletter with the journal formerly published by Sage Publications. TS publishes research articles, teaching tips, and reports on teaching sociology. Teaching is not only a major activity for many sociologists, but it is a social phenomenon to which the concepts, theories, and techniques of the discipline can be applied. The journal includes shorter reports of class projects and innovations that were formerly published in the ASA Teaching Newsletter.
