The American Sociological Association (ASA) has created a database of publishing outlets to assist sociologists (and others interested in related fields) in publishing their manuscripts. Scholars can increase their rate of publication (and journals increase the quality of their manuscripts) when they have access to information on appropriate outlets from a comprehensive listing of journals receptive to sociological materials. 

The new electronic version of Publishing Options allows editors and publishers to enter their information into an online form. The information will subsequently be downloaded into e-book format (with appropriate indices) and sold for a modest fee in the ASA online bookstore. The online database will also allow publishers to update their listings as needed, and ASA will update the e-book frequently to maintain accuracy.

Listings in Publishing Options are free. To include your journals in the new electronic Publishing Options e-book, register and complete the free online form. If you have any questions, please e-mail
