JSI Editor, 2010-2013

I am delighted to report that the flow of high-quality submissions to JSI remains very 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 http://www.spssi.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=page.viewpage&pageid=687.

We have many exciting issues recently in print and at the publishers.  I hope you had a chance to read the last issue of 2010 (Immigrants and Hosts: Perceptions, Interactions, and Transformations, Issue Editors: Kay Deaux, Victoria Esses, Richard Lalonde, & Rupert Brown) and the first issue of 2011 (75 Years of Social Science for Social Action: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on SPSSI’s Legacy, Issue Editors: Alexandra Rutherford, Frances Cherry, & Rhoda Unger).  Soon, the second issue of 2011 will be published (Anti-Gay Ballot Initiatives: The Social, Psychological, and Policy Implications, Issue Editors: Adam Fingerhut, Ellen Riggle, & Sherry Rostosky).  Please take note of our upcoming lineup of outstanding issues below.
