JSI logo

The Journal of Social Issues (JSI) is SPSSI's flagship journal. It has been published quarterly since 1945, with each issue devoted to a single theme. Over its long history, JSI has covered a wide range of pressing social issues concerning education, health, intergroup relations, politics, poverty, religion, technology, and the workplace.  Articles included in each JSI issue collectively address relevant theoretical, empirical, and policy considerations. JSI issues showcase international research from scholars (including early career scholars) from a variety of relevant fields. Each issue is developed by one or more issue editors who work closely with JSI Editor Martin D. Ruck and the Editorial Board.
