Southern Rural Sociology (SRS) was established in 1983 to stimulate research on rural issues that relate to the South. An academic, refereed journal, SRS is discipline-based but encourages submissions from researchers and other individuals interested in rural social change. The journal seeks to be inclusive rather than exclusive of divergent theories, methods, and substantive foci. The editorial staff also seeks to be geographically inclusive. The South has unique characteristics that provide abundant opportunity for scholarship and activism. For example, the South is home to more rural minoritites than any other region, and is also the region where persistent rural poverty is most severe. Yet the South also shares many characteristics with other rural regions in the United States and beyond. Studies done elsewhere allow reflection on the rural South. Thus, the geographic focus of SRS extends beyond the geographic bounds of the region. In the end, we have but one goal: to publish high quality, informative, and thought-provoking articles that shed light on the problems and opportunities that abound in the South.
