Journal of Social Issues

By Sheri R. Levy
Journal of Social Issues, Editor, 2010-2013

Keep an eye out for the second issue of 2010. Gillian Finchilescu and Colin Tredoux have put together an outstanding issue on The Changing Landscape of Intergroup Relations in South Africa.  I am very much looking forward to seeing this issue in print and seeing its impact on future work in this area.  Rick Hoyle and his editorial board helped oversee this issue, and I am thankful for their tremendous input and insights.
I am pleased to report that JSI will be switching to electronic submission in the very near future.  We will post relevant information on the JSI website as soon as we have completed the transition to the electronic system (
