Founded in 1922 by pioneering sociologist and social activist Howard Odum, Social Forces is recognized as a top journal of social research in the U.S. and internationally. Though it highlights sociological inquiry, the journal also explores realms shared with social psychology, anthropology, political science, history, and economics. Each issue includes 20-25 peer-reviewed articles and a section of book reviews. The editors, past and present, acknowledge the stimulating and increasingly international nature of today’s social science community and how this is reflected in the journal. Social Forces is associated with the Southern Sociological Society and housed in the Department of Sociology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
