Margaret Thatcher once famously said that there is no such thing as
society.  Well there is now!  The Academy of the Social Sciences, which
represents the UK social sciences, has awarded the publishing contract for
its major new journal, Society, to T&F informa.  Society will be published
from 2006 under the Routledge imprint, which has been relaunched for the
21st century as the world's leading social science imprint.

Society will:

* Provide a focus for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research
  across the social sciences.
* Promote the social sciences and represent current trends.
* Provide a digest of the most important issues within the social
* Provide a forum for debate on the intellectual and economic future.
* And provide critical reflection nationally and internationally.

Jo Campling, on behalf of the Academy's Publications Committee commented:

"Size matters!  We want the leading society publisher to publish for the
Academy - T&F informa can deliver everything we want globally,
effectively, efficiently and with maximum return."
