The American Sociological Association partners with SAGE to 
publish its influential journals

Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC (July 
6, 2009) - SAGE is very pleased to announce it has signed an 
agreement to partner with the American Sociological Association 
(ASA) to publish eight of its journals beginning in 2010 and 

The journals are American Sociological Review, ASA's flagship 
journal and the number-one-ranked journal in sociology, 
Contemporary Sociology: A Journal of Reviews, Journal of Health 
and Social Behavior, Social Psychology Quarterly, Sociology of 
Education, and Teaching Sociology (all to be published by SAGE in 
2010); and Sociological Methodology and Sociological Theory 
(published by SAGE beginning in 2012).

The American Sociological Association is a non-profit membership 
association, based in Washington, DC, dedicated to advancing 
sociology as a scientific discipline and profession serving the 
public good. Founded in 1905, ASA has nearly 15,000 members, 
including college and university faculty, and researchers at 
public institutions and in the private sector. Its members 
participate in 44 special interest sections and its journals are 
among the best in the field.

"Forming a publishing partnership with SAGE is a very significant 
step for the Association, one we believe will be extremely 
beneficial to our members and to the discipline of sociology," 
said ASA Executive Officer Sally Hillsman. "SAGE has long 
provided significant publishing support to sociology, and this is 
a particularly important time for our discipline nationally and 
internationally. The leadership of the American Sociological 
Association seeks to ensure the Association's journals are at the 
core of a robust sociological and interdisciplinary scholarly 
communication system that strengthens our discipline and 
contributes to the well being of society. I am confident that 
ASA's partnership with SAGE will move us forward in achieving 
these goals."

Publishers' proposals were judged on the strength of their list 
in sociology and related fields and on the publisher's reputation 
and references.

"We couldn't be more pleased that ASA has selected SAGE as its 
publisher and are delighted to be working with the Association to 
grow and strengthen its publishing program," said Alison Mudditt, 
SAGE Executive Vice President. "The ASA's prestigious journals 
will increase the quality of our already strong list in 
sociology. Our extensive online presence, marketing efforts, and 
international sales team will help heighten worldwide visibility 
for ASA's journals."
