The American Sociologist publishes papers, comments, and other writings on
topics of professional and disciplinary concern to sociologists. The
contents examine intellectual, practical, and ethical issues affecting the
work, careers, and perspectives of sociologists.
In addition, the journal encourages research and reporting on ways in which
sociological knowledge and skill relate to issues of broad public concern -
past, present, and future.
Topics include the uses of sociology in academic and nonacademic settings;
training, placement, and career paths of sociologists; structural and
ideological dimensions affecting the development of new perspectives in the
discipline; the ethics of research, teaching, and practice; the application
of sociological knowledge and methods in practical problems; the historical
and interdisciplinary roots of sociological knowledge; and the contributions
of sociologists to professional and public issues.
