Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the new journal Sociology of Development (published by University of California Press) is ready for manuscript submissions!

The journal webpage, which includes manuscript preparation information, is here: http://www.ucpressjournals.com/journal.php?j=sod

The manuscript submission webpage is here: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ucpress-socdev

Sociology of Development is a new venue for scholarly work that addresses issues of development, broadly considered. Areas of interest include economic development and well-being, gender, health, inequality, poverty, environment and sustainability, political economy, conflict, and social movements, to mention only a few. Basic as well as policy-oriented research is welcome. The journal further recognizes the interdisciplinary scope of development studies and encourages submissions from related fields, including (but not limited to) political science, economics, geography, anthropology, and health sciences. A foundational principle of this journal is the promotion and encouragement of intellectual diversity within the study of development. As such, the journal encourages submissions from all scholars of development sociology, regardless of theoretical orientation, methodological preference, region of investigation, or historical period of study.

Best wishes,

Andrew Jorgenson and Jeffrey Kentor, Co-Editors
