Journal of Social Issues

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

I hope you will have a chance to read the third issue of 2010. Manuela Barreto and Naomi Ellemers co-edited an outstanding issue on Social Stigma and Social Disadvantage.  Rick Hoyle and his Editorial Board helped oversee this issue, and I am thankful for their tremendous input and insights.

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 (
