ISSN (printed): 0091-8369. ISSN (electronic): 1540-3602.
The highly acclaimed Journal of Homosexuality is devoted to scholarly research on homosexuality, including sexual practices and gender roles and their cultural, historical, interpersonal, and modern social contexts. In addition to research on human sexuality, articles in the journal also explore the political, social, and moral implications of research on human sexuality. Unique perspectives from the disciplines of law, history, and the humanities broaden the scope of the journal even more. Specifically, the Journal of Homosexuality has the following goals: to serve the allied disciplinary and professional groups represented by anthropology, art, history, the law, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, and sociology, as well as basic research in the biological sciences, medicine, psychiatry, and psychology, to serve as a forum for both essentialist and social constructionist views of homosexuality, to serve as the scholarly source of materials for research and educational programs dealing with homosexuality, particularly lesbian and gay studies programs, to serve as a vehicle for the dissemination of research on homosexuality throughout the world, to confront homophobia through the encouragement of scholarly inquiry and the dissemination of sound research. Researchers and practitioners interested in current knowledge about human sexuality will find every issue of this journal brimming with a balanced selection of scholarly and practical articles. Independent scholars, professors, students, and lay people as well as clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, sex therapists, criminologists, and lawyers get their information from the Journal of Homosexuality. This bold and vital journal is divided into three highly readable sections. The first and largest section contains articles, often thematic, sometimes of general interest. The second section is devoted to reviews of books that report on new research. The third section is an annotated bibliography of references selected for their importance to research on human sexuality, sexual preference, and social sex roles.
