Welcome Sociology Editors!

Welcome to the 2010 Sociology Editors Forum community site!  You’ve been cordially invited to attend the Sociology Editors Forum to be held at the Hilton Atlanta on August 16th from 6:30pm to 8:15pm.  The intent of this community site is to extend the discussion beyond the physical event and provide editors with the opportunity to talk with colleagues and peers about sociology publishing today.  The site contains a plethora of valuable resources related to reviewers, plagiarism, impact factors, etc., as well as forthcoming podcasts from the Managing Director of the Social Sciences and Humanities program at Wiley-Blackwell and fellow sociology editors.  We hope you enjoy and look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
