International Society for Justice Research


Social Justice Research is the official journal of the International Society for Justice Research (ISJR).

International Society for Justice Research
The ISJR was founded with three main objectives:
  • To provide biennial scientific meetings and further opportunity for the exchange of scientific information
  • To foster productive discussions of new ideas, research, and theories relevant to justice
  • To encourage international and interdisciplinary cooperation in justice theory and research
Questions about justice are ubiquitous in interpersonal relations, within and between communities, social groups, organizations, and states. They are at the core of social conflicts and they are essential for sustainable conflict resolutions.
You can access the Society Newsletter at the ISJR website.

Membership and Meetings 

ISJR’s membership consists of a network of scientists who work on justice-related issues. Biennial meetings of the society provide a forum for the scientific exchange of theoretical developments and recent research. Research and knowledge on topics of social justice is rapidly growing within various fields in the social and behavioral sciences. The International Justice Conference allows for these various disciplines to meet and exchange ideas and research findings (both basic and applied). The conference and ISJR listserv act as major conduits in creating a network of eminent scholars from around the world. Scholars from many countries are represented at these conferences, and the range of disciplines represented is similarly diverse, including anthropology, behavioral economics, law, psychology, political science, sociology, as well as other areas.

Biennial Conference - 2014 

ISJR 2014
The 15th biennial conference of ISJR will be held from June 19-22, 2014, on the campus of New York University, organized by Professor John T. Jost.
The conference will take place primarily in facilities of the Leonard N. Stern Business School, New York University, in the heart of Greenwich Village (near historic Washington Square).
There will be three major conference themes:
(1) Economic inequality (the 1% vs. the 99%);
(2) Law, justice, and social science; and
(3) Progress, social stability, and change.
One of the keynote speeches will be given by Mahzarin R. Banaji, who is the Richard Clarke Cabot Professor of Social Ethics in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University.
Special invited symposia will be chaired by Claudia Cohen (Columbia/Teachers College), Peter Coleman (Columbia/Teachers College), Michelle Fine (CUNY/Graduate Center), Guillermina Jasso (NYU/Sociology), Aaron C. Kay (Duke/Fuqua), Joshua Knobe (Yale Philosophy/Cognitive Science), Elizabeth Levy Paluck (Princeton Psychology/Public Policy), Manfred Schmitt (Koblenz-Landau/Psychology), Tom R. Tyler (Yale/Law School), and Kees van den Bos (Utrecht/Social Psychology).
There will also be special panels to honor the illustrious careers of Morton Deutsch (Columbia University) and Lee Ross (Stanford University).

    Aims and Scope


    Social Justice Research, is an international multidisciplinary forum for the publication of original papers that have broad implications for social scientists investigating the origins, structures, and consequences of justice in human affairs. The journal encompasses the justice-related work (using traditional and novel approaches) of all social scientists-psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, economists, policy scientists, political scientists, legal researchers, management scientists, and others. Its multidisciplinary approach furthers the integration of the various social science perspectives. In addition to original research papers - theoretical, empirical, and methodological - the journal also publishes book reviews and, from time to time, special thematic issues.
