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 in The American Sociologist 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.
