Overview



Aims and Scope


Published for The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), the Journal of Social Issues (JSI) brings behavioral and social science theory, empirical evidence, and practice to bear on human and social problems.  Each issue of the journal focuses on a single topic - recent issues, for example, have addressed poverty, housing and health; privacy as a social and psychological concern; youth and violence; and the impact of social class on education.

A subscription to JSI also includes a full subscription to SPSSI's two other journals: Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP) and the newest title, Social Issues and Policy Review (SIPR).  An archival, print version of the annual collection will be provided to all SPSSI members and paid subscribers to JSI, ASAP, and SIPR.
