New for 2011

January 13, 2011

2010 was quite an eventful year for SMR: Our cover got a new look, we published a special issue on sequence analysis, welcomed new members to the Editorial Board, and, most important, launched the SMR blog.

Thompson-Reuters released the 2009 Journal Citation Reports, and SMR had a very strong showing. For 2010, Thompson-Reuters introduced the 5-year impact factor, a major improvement over its previous measure which was overly sensitive to short term changes. Sociological Methods & Research ranked #4 among top sociology journals according to the new measurement, just behind ARSAJS and ASR. In addition, SMR is #5 among social science methods journals.

2011 so far seems to be just as promising! Read the rest of this entry »
