Family and Consumer Sciences Research: A Compendium of Journals






Family and Consumer Sciences Research: A Compendium of Journals



Note: this file is based on the original compendium

published in 1992, with some updating provided by the Family and Consumer

Sciences Research Institute at Iowa State University in 1995. Sherman Hanna

converted this to HTML format and added some web links in May, 1996. The

original file from 1992 was used, with the updates from Iowa State inserted.

Some of the information may be out-of-date, because journals listed in

1992 did not respond to requests in 1995.

 This compendium of journals relevant to Family and Consumer Economics

is a product of NCR-52 Family Economics Committee and the Family Economics

Research Group, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.

NCR-52 Family Economics is a regional committee under the auspices of the

State Agricultural Experiment Stations and the Cooperative State Research

Service, USDA. The information was compiled by personnel of the Family

Economics Research Group. The NCR-52 committee expresses special appreciation

to Dr. Mark Lino of the Family Economics Research Group for his dedicated

efforts in collecting the information in this compendium, and to the editors

of the journals represented herein for providing that information. Production

of the publication was supported by grants from the Family Economics-Home

Management Section and the Research Section of the American Home Economics

Association.


 


 

About This Compendium:

 The purpose of this compendium is to help people prepare their

research for submission to a journal. There were 131 journals relevant

to family and consumer economics surveyed. A mail questionnaire was sent

to the editor of each journal in July 1991. A letter reminding editors

to return the questionnaire was mailed a few weeks later. A second mail

questionnaire was sent to nonresponding journal editors in September 1991.

Responses were received from 92 journal editors

(a response rate of 70%). Of these, 82 completed the questionnaire, 4 indicated

their journal did not accept outside manuscripts, 3 believed the journal

covered topics not in the realm of family or consumer economics, and 3

stated that the journal had ceased publication either temporarily or permanently.

The four journals that do not accept outside manuscripts are Economic

Review
(Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City), Family Economics Review,

Federal Reserve Bulletin, and Social Security Bulletin.


The following information was collected from each journal:


Sponsor: Journal’s affiliation, usually a professional association

or university.


Appropriate topics: Consumer education, consumer/family economics,

consumer/family finance, consumer/family law, consumer/family policy, consumer/family

psychology, consumer/family sociology, financial counseling/planning, or

other related topical area.


Primary audience: Academic, practitioner, government, or other

category.

Frequency of issue: Number of issues each year.


Copies per issue: Paid and nonpaid subscriptions.


Type of review: Double blind (authors and reviewers unknown

to each other), single blind (authors known to reviewers or reviewers known

to authors), open (authors and reviewers known to each other), or editorial

(review by in-house editors only).


Acceptance rate: Percent of manuscripts submitted in 1990 that

were eventually published or are very likely to be published.


Average review time: Amount of time that passes between the

time a journal first receives a manuscript and when the authors are notified

of the results of the first review.


Number of reviewers: Number of people, excluding in-house editors,

who review a submitted manuscript.


Percentage of invited articles: Percent of articles published

in 1990 that were requested specifically by the editor or were from an

annual conference or meeting.


Maximum page length and preferred range of pages: Length

of a submitted manuscript, double spaced, including tables, figures, references,

and appendices.


Page charge to publish manuscript: If there is such a charge,

the amount. Many journals noted a submission fee. As submission fees were

not asked for specifically, such fees are not reported for all journals.


Manuscript guidelines: Where such guidelines could be obtained

most easily; the journal, editor, or elsewhere. Many journals noted a particular

style guideline. Because guidelines were not asked for specifically, these

guidelines are not reported for all journals.

OTHER INFORMATION: Journal aims to present research that will improve

understanding of behavioral, especially sociopsychological, aspects of

economic phenomena and processes. Economic psychology as a discipline studies

the psychological mechanisms that underlie consumption and other economic

behavior. Studies in economic psychology may relate to different levels

of aggregation, from the household and the individual consumer to macro

level of whole nations. Economic behavior in connection with inflation,

unemployment, taxation, economic development, as well as consumer information

and economic behavior in the marketplace are thus the major fields of interest.
