Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP) is a journal of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI). The journal is an outlet for psychological and social science scholarship with implications for social action and policy. Under the guidance of an international editorial board, ASAP serves a global audience that includes policy makers and advocates as well as social scientists, students, and the public at large. Articles are published electronically as soon as they are accepted for publication, then in print at the end of every calendar year.
Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy is rated in the top 15% of journals in the category Social Sciences (miscellaneous) in the SCOPUS/SCImago journal rankings at http://bit.ly/ASAPImpactFactor, with an SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) of .047 and a Cites per Doc. (2y) of 1.08. (The latter value is computed using the same formula as Thomson Reuters' Impact Factor tm).
Recent articles in ASAP have examined social psychological methods in the study of economic and social justice including ageism, heterosexism, racism, sexism, status quo bias and other forms of discrimination, social problems such as climate change, extremism, homelessness, inter-group conflict, natural disasters, poverty, and terrorism, and social ideals such as democracy, empowerment, equality, health, and trust. Additionally, ASAP includes reviews of recently published books and other media of interest to SPSSI members and the broader community concerned with policy issues. Electronic access to the Journal may be obtained in several ways. For members of SPSSI, electronic access is free (log in required). Individuals at libraries and member institutions may also access the Journal directly through the website of the publisher, Wiley Blackwell.
