Very cool to see the first issue of Sociological Science, a new open-access journal for primary research articles. While I should disclose that I’m a consulting editor for the publication, I should also disclose that I can’t claim any credit for the good stuff therein:
- Lewis, Gray & Meierhenrich, The Structure of Online Activism
- Young and Lim, Time as a Network Good: Evidence from Unemployment and the Standard Workweek
- Anderson, Goel, Huber, Malhotra and Watts, Political Ideology and Racial Preferences in Online Dating
- Legewie and DiPrete, Pathways to Science and Engineering Bachelor’s Degrees for Men and Women
We’re definitely putting this one on our Reading List …
UPDATE: Vol 1., No. 2. On the subject of new publications, we also want to show a little TSP love for Social Currents, the impressive new journal of the Southern Sociological Society. Editors Toni Calasanto and Vinnie Roscigno just released their second issue, with some really provocative work by some of the best sociologists in the business.
I could write many more nice things about each publication, but I’ll likely be submitting my own research to Sociological Science and Social Currents — and nobody likes an apple polisher.
