Contribute to The SES Indicator
The guest editor sets the overall tone for the quarterly newsletter and will contribute the lead story for that edition. Contributions must be SES related current, emerging or cross-cutting content that highlights health, education and human welfare.
The readership of the OSES office is broad and ranges across the entire spectrum of the psychology profession. Articles should be inclusive and accessible to readers who may not be specialists in the content area. Authors also have an option of publishing a two-part series model if it suits the styling of the author's content. All guest editors will receive an electronic version of their contribution.
Articles do not have to be original pieces. They can be condensed or redacted versions of a previously written report, analysis or article. Guest editors can write the lead article (in the range of 500-1500 words) or a supporting article (less than 600 words), on a topic of their choice related to the content theme.
We seek APA members and researchers — from all levels, fields and expertise in psychology — who are interested in serving as a guest editor for future issues. We accept guest editor contributions on a rolling basis.
Serving as a guest editor is a genuinely excellent opportunity to expand and contribute to the growing psychological literature about the intersections of SES, poverty, health and human welfare! If you wish to suggest future SES Indicator topics, learn more about this opportunity and/or serve as a guest editor, please send a detailed email with contact information to Ieshia Haynie.
