Meet the new TSQ Editors
What is your vision for The Sociological Quarterly?
We are committed to publishing theoretically sophisticated and methodologically rigorous articles that span the discipline of sociology. We welcome submissions that analyze quantitative and/or qualitative data or that are primarily theoretical or methodological in scope. Building on the work of the previous editors, we will be working to further increase the international reputation of TSQ, including by encouraging submissions from scholars working outside the United States. We will also be focused on providing authors with thorough reviews in a timely manner.
Scholars who publish in TSQ will benefit from some new steps we are taking to promote articles published in the journal. For example, we are launching a Twitter account (@socquarterly) that will alert followers to new articles published in the journal and draw notice to articles that are referenced in the media. Twitter has become a vibrant forum for academic sociologists, and we believe that this new Twitter account will increase the impact of articles published in the journal. Additionally, we will be working with authors of all accepted manuscripts to help them publicize their work in the media.
Overall, we look forward to our work in the years ahead, and we certainly encourage readers to submit their best work to TSQ.

The Sociological Quarterly is devoted to publishing cutting-edge scholarship in all areas of sociological inquiry. We look for articles that advance the discipline and reach the widest possible audience. Our focus is on publishing the best theoretical, methodological and empirical (qualitative and quantitative) sociology. Since 1960, the contributors, peer-reviewers, advisory editors, and readers of The Sociological Quarterly have made it one of the leading generalist journals in the field.
