Journal: Sociological Perspectives

The PSA scholarly journal, Sociological Perspectives, is published four times yearly in March, June, September, and December.  PSA members receive print copies of Sociological Perspectives in the mail during their membership year (if a physical address is provided through the PSA membership portal), as well as online access to all issues.  Members can access the journal online through the member login.

Established in 1957 and published for the Pacific Sociological Association, Sociological Perspectives offers a wealth of pertinent articles spanning the breadth of sociological inquiry. In the pages of Sociological Perspectives, contributions by leading scholars typically address the ever-expanding body of knowledge about social processes related to economic, political, anthropological and historical issues. Published quarterly, each issue of Sociological Perspectives offers 170 pages of pertinent and up-to-the-minute articles within the field of sociology.

The journal’s purpose is to advance research, theory, scholarship, and practice within sociology and related disciplines. Preference is given to articles that are of general interest to members of the discipline and that, as a result, advance the accumulation of knowledge about social processes.
