We (Sam Gaertner, University of Delaware, USA, and Rupert Brown, Sussex University, UK) have recently been appointed by The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) to assume the editorship of Social Issues and Policy Review (SIPR) beginning with the 2012 issue. We are now inviting potential authors with strong publishing experience to contact us with ideas for articles. Consistent with the mission of SIPR, such articles should provide state of the art and timely theoretical and empirical reviews of topics and programs of research that are directly relevant to understanding and addressing social issues and public policy.
SIPR is an annual periodical published by Wiley-Blackwell and all submissions are peer reviewed. Articles will be accessible and relevant to a broad audience and will normally review a body of research that is directly relevant to the psychological study of social issues and public policy. Contributions should present a strong scholarly foundation and consider how research and theory can inform social issues and policy or articulate the implication of social issues and public policy for theory and research. Thus, SIPR links the goals of social scientists with those who develop or administer social policy. Anyone with an idea to write such an article should contact either of us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. .At this stage in the process, please do not send full manuscripts.
