Sociological Perspectives and The Pacific Sociologist

Journal: Sociological Perspectives

The PSA scholarly journal, Sociological Perspectives, is published six times yearly in February, April, June, August, October, and December.  PSA members can choose to receive print copies of Sociological Perspectives in the mail during their membership year by paying a $20 fee to PSA at the time they pay their membership. Members can access the journal online.

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.

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.
