Update on the Journal of Social Issues

The 2008 volume of JSI is coming together nicely. The first issue is in print, and the second issue, edited by Zick, Pettigrew, and Wagner, will appear in print toward the end of May. A well-timed issue on democracy and disenfranchisement, edited by Kevin Lanning, will go out around the middle of August. The final issue of the year, edited by Ruck and Horn, is on children’s rights. Look for this issue to arrive in the mail before Thanksgiving. You can determine the topic and editorial team for any issue in development by consulting the JSI pages on the SPSSI web site. Access this information by navigating to the SPSSI homepage (, clicking over the “Publications” button, and choosing “Journal of Social Issues” under the “Journals” heading.
