Journal of Social Issues

By Sheri R. Levy, Journal of Social Issues, Editor-Elect, 2010-2013

I am delighted to report that the flow of high-quality submissions to JSI remains high.  Our international editorial board has been hard at work, and I am very thankful for their expert advice.  Please view our editorial board at

The first issue of 2010 will be in print soon. Carey S. Ryan and Juan F. Casas assembled an impressive group of scholars whose qualitative and quantitative work from diverse fields of study provides us with a better and fuller understanding of Latinos and Latino Immigrants in the U.S.  I am very much looking forward to seeing this issue in print and seeing its impact on future work in this area.  Rick Hoyle and his editorial board helped oversee this issue, and I am thankful for their tremendous input and insights.

In 2010, you will notice that JSI has a new cover design. I am grateful to Johnny Siever and his team at John Wiley & Sons for all their superb and creative design suggestions for the new cover of JSI.
