Call for Papers: Race and Social Problems

Call for Papers:

The journal, Race and Social Problems, provides a multidisciplinary and international forum for the publication of articles and discussion of issues germane to race and its enduring relationship to psychological, socioeconomic, political, and cultural problems. The Journal publishes original empirical studies, reviews of past research, theoretical studies, and invited essays that advance the understanding of the complexities of race and its relationship to social problems. Submissions from the fields of communications, criminology, economics, education, law, political science, psychology, public health, history, demography, public policy, international relations, social work, and sociology are encouraged.

We welcome manuscripts that explore, but are not limited to, such topics as criminal justice, economic conditions, education, elderly, families, health disparities, mental health, race relations, and youth. The Journal mostly publishes original empirical articles which use a variety of methodologies, including quantitative (descriptive, relationship testing, and intervention studies). The Journal also publishes qualitative studies and papers utilizing secondary data sources. On occasion, the Journal will publish non-empirical articles, including, but not limited to, policy proposals, critical analyses, historical reviews and analyses, and solution-based papers on critical contemporary issues.
