SPSSI publishes three scholarly journals: Journal of Social Issues (JSI), Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP), and Social Issues and Policy Review (SIPR). SPSSI journals are published with the guidance of SPSSI's Publications Committee, which is Co-Chaired by Geoff Maruyama and Chris Crandall.
You can help us build awareness of the journals and encourage your library to subscribe using our flyer.
Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP) is an outlet for psychological and social science scholarship with implications for social action and policy. 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. Inquiries about the journal should be directed to ASAP Editor Chris Aberson.
Virtual Series Issue (VSI) is a virtual journal based around thematic or significant anniversaries or events (e.g. Brown v. Board of Education, MLK Remembrance, SPSSI's Annual Conferences), calendar events (e.g. Earth Day), and major policy initiatives (e.g., health care, welfare reform, major Supreme Court cases). The VSI Editor identifies and selects appropriate articles from previously published issues of SPSSI's journals to be bundled for inclusion in each virtual issue. Inquiries about VSI should be directed to VSI Editor Kevin Carriere.
