American Sociological Review

The American Sociological Review is the flagship journal of the American Sociological Association (ASA). The ASA founded this journal (often referred to simply as ASR) in 1936 with the mission to publish original works of interest to the sociology discipline in general, new theoretical developments, results of research that advance our understanding of fundamental social processes, and important methodological innovations.

Academic journals are sometimes evaluated by their Impact Factor, a statistic which corresponds to the frequency a journal's articles are cited in other journals. By this measure, the American Sociological Review, is the most influential journal in sociology.

Recent issues have explored topics as diverse as social isolation, Islamic orthodoxy, and infant mortality. Emphasis is on exceptional quality and general interest.

Although occasionally subject to criticism for methodological bias, ASR is widely recognized as a leading publisher of international scholarship in sociology.

The American Sociological Review does not include book reviews. The ASA publishes the American Sociological Review bimonthly (February, April, June, August, October, December).
