Sociology of Race and Ethnicity Approved as Newest ASA Section Journal

At its January 2013 meeting, ASA Council approved a recommendation from the Committee on Publications for a new quarterly journal on Sociology of Race and Ethnicity from ASA Section on Racial and Ethnic Minorities (SREM).

The new journal is the fourth official section journal approved by ASA. The first, City & Community, was first published by the ASA Community and Urban Sociology Section in 2002. Journal of World-Systems Research, an online-only open access journal, has been sponsored by the ASA Political Economy of the World-Systems Section since 2009. Society and Mental Health was first published in 2011 by the ASA Sociology of Mental Health Section.

David L. Brunsma (Virginia Tech) and David G. Embrick (Loyola University-Chicago) will serve as inaugural co-editors for Sociology of Race and Ethnicity. The first issue will be published in January 2015 in partnership with SAGE. The journal will provide a much-needed outlet for sociological research on race and ethnicity, and will seek to provide new linkages between sociology and other disciplines where race and ethnicity are central components.

Beginning in 2015, membership in the Racial and Ethnic Minorities Section will include a subscription to Sociology of Race and Ethnicity.

More information on the new journal (including how to submit manuscripts and volunteer as a reviewer) will appear in an upcoming issue of Footnotes.
