Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy

Mission statement: Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP) is an electronic journal sponsored by the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues. The journal is an outlet for timely and innovative psychological and related social science scholarship with implications for social action and policy. We seek to be a forum for publishing new work as well as discussion on alternative approaches to a variety of important and current social problems. By encouraging timely publication of well-written peer-reviewed work, we aim to facilitate communication between social science researchers and policy makers as well as with the public as a whole. Articles will communicate with a broad spectrum of interested individuals as well as with the social science community. Articles are published electronically as soon as they are accepted for publication.

ASAP is not a thematic journal. Submissions in any content area related to the goals of SPSSI will be considered. They will be evaluated in terms of scholarly excellence as well as their relevance to social problems, social action and policy.
