About This Journal

As the official journal of the Georgia Sociological Association, The Journal of Public and Professional Sociology publishes original (not previously published) works of research and theory focusing on both public and professional sociology. Public sociology aims to inform public debate about social, political and moral issues while professional sociology serves as the traditional core of the disciplinary field. This publication seeks articles that can inform public debate and knowledge by bringing sociological expertise to the public realm. It is the position of this journal that professional sociology brings legitimacy to public sociology as public sociology brings added relevance to the professional. JPPS adheres to this definition of open access: anyone can read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of its articles and use them for any other lawful purpose.
