Journal of Social Issues Report
By Sheri R. Levy, JSI Editor-Elect
Soon, the 18-month transition from Rick Hoyle’s editorship to mine will be complete. I want to thank Rick and his editorial board for a very smooth transition. I also want to thank Irene Frieze, Susan Opotow, and Dan Perlman for their very helpful advice during this transition.
The Journal of Social Issues has a long and venerable history of bringing attention to significant and timely social issues through the lens of cutting-edge scientific research. In this way, JSI is recognized widely for its significant advances in understanding and addressing social issues and in setting the agenda for the next wave of research on the topics of its focus. Rick and his board have continued this tradition, and I am deeply honored and excited to work toward continuing this tradition with you.
I hope you will contact me by email (Journal_ of_Social_Issues@notes.cc.sunysb.edu) about your ideas for issues for JSI. Please check out the JSI website (http://www.spssi.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=page.viewpagepageid=786) for recent updates. I want to thank Susan Dudley for her tremendous assistance.
