The Journal of Applied Social Science (JASS) publishes scholarly content (ie. research articles, research and evaluation reports, monographs, teaching notes, and book reviews) on a wide range of topics of interest to the social science practitioner--in applied, clinical, or public endeavors. The editors seek manuscripts that give useful information to readers with the potential to improve the way things are done for the sake of institutions, communities, policy, programming, justice, research, and more. Implied by its eponymic title, the journal's audience expects authors to relay empirical information that can make a real difference in people's lives.

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, a peer-reviewed volume published by Emerald Group Publishing, is inviting submissions for Volume 41 of the series. This RSMCC volume has a special focus on non-state actors and political conflicts but it will also attend to the broader themes of the series. Volume editor Julie Mazzei (Kent State University) welcomes submissions that fall within one of two areas: (1) research focused on the roles and motivations of non-state actors in conflicts or post-conflict situations in the post-Cold War era; or (2) research generally relevant to understanding the dynamics of social movements, conflicts, or change. We are particularly interested in research focusing on the motivations and interests of non-state violent actors (NSVAs) in the post-Cold War era; the role of identity and/or ideology in the conflicts or resolutions of so-called “new wars;” the impact of NSVAs in conflict and/or peace-making; and the ways in which IGOs and NGOs interact with NSVAs in conflicts or post-conflict zones. RSMCC boasts quick turn-around times, generally communicating peer review-informed decisions within 10-12 weeks. For more information, please visit the RSMCC website:http://www.emeraldinsight.com/products/books/series.htm?id=0163-786X
The official journal of ASA’s Section for Racial and Ethnic Minorities, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will publish the highest quality, cutting-edge sociological research on race and ethnicity regardless of epistemological, methodological, or theoretical orientation. While the study of race and ethnicity has derived from a broad and deep tradition of interdisciplinarity, sociology indeed has often been at the forefront of scholarly understanding of the dynamics of race and ethnicity; yet, there exists no journal in sociology devoted to bringing together this important theoretical, empirical, and critical work. Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will provide a fulcrum upon which sociologically-centered work will swing as it also seeks to provide new linkages between the discipline of sociology and other disciplines and areas where race and ethnicity are central components. The submission portal can be found at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/sre.
