Dear Section Members,
We are writing because we have learned that a significant number of members in this section also are members of the social psychology section. Effective August 1, 2014, we became the new coeditors of Social Psychology Quarterly. In an effort to expand the breadth of the journal, we are reaching out to you to encourage you to consider submitting your work to SPQ. We would like to attract more contributions to the journal from a broad base of researchers who use social psychological approaches. We think that for many in this section, this would include your work.
We want you to know that we are committed to making editorial decisions in a timely manner. While time in review is a product of many things including how long it takes reviewers to provide their advice, our goal is to make a decision within 70 days of submission. If you would like to know more about our perspective, thoughts, and plans for the journal, you can go to: http://www.asanet.org/documents/SPQ%20Proposal%20StetsSerpe.pdf
We hope that you will send your scholarship to Social Psychology Quarterly. Please contact us if you have any questions about a manuscript or the journal, more generally.
Jan E. Stets and Richard T. Serpe
Coeditors, Social Psychology Quarterly
