For over 50 years, American Behavioral Scientist has been a valuable source of information for scholars, researchers, professionals, and students, providing in-depth perspectives on intriguing contemporary topics throughout the social and behavioral sciences. Each issue offers comprehensive analysis of a single topic, examining such important and diverse arenas as sociology, international and U.S. politics, behavioral sciences, communication and media, economics, education, ethnic and racial studies, terrorism, and public service. The journal's interdisciplinary approach stimulates creativity and occasionally controversy within the emerging frontiers of the social sciences, exploring the critical issues that affect our world and challenge our thinking.

  • As each issue of ABS is a special issue on a single topic, we do not accept individual submissions. The prospectus for an American Behavioral Scientist special issue focuses the issue editor's thoughts and helps to guide the journal's editorial board and publisher as to whether to commission the issue. A prospectus emphasizes the rationale: why the issue is being developed and for what target readership.

    Typically, each volume consists of a preface/introduction and 6 to 8 articles for an average volume length of approximately 200-220 double-spaced manuscript pages, or 50,000 to 55,000 words (including all references, notes, abstracts, and biographical sketches).

    Please divide your prospectus into the following three categories: "About the Project," "About the Market," and "The Outline." Please keep the first two areas separate from each other in the prospectus, as the two-part format will make it easier for us to understand your intentions.

    Your prospectus for an ABS issue should be sent via e-mail to Laura A. Lawrie, Managing Editor, American Behavioral Scientist, e-mail, for circulation to the ABS Editorial Board (or specific members who have special expertise in the topic). Please also contact the Managing Editor for further information.
