Contexts is a quarterly magazine of the American Sociological Association about society and social behavior. Directed to anyone interested in the latest sociological ideas and research, Contexts seeks to apply new knowledge, stimulate fresh thinking, and disseminate important information produced by the discipline. The publication's articles synthesize key findings, weave together diverse strands of work, draw out implications for policy, and debate issues of controversy. The hallmarks of Contexts are accessibility, broad appeal, and timeliness. By design, it is not a technical journal, but a magazine for diverse readers who wish to be current about social science knowledge, emerging trends, and their relevance. It regularly publishes letters and opinions, brief notes on recent findings, feature articles with comments, and reviews of books and other media. While significant as scholarship, articles published in Contexts are prepared in an engaging and accessible style. Contexts aspires to be a meeting place for discussion among social scientists and the public.
