The American Sociological Review is a bimonthly peer-reviewed academic journal covering all aspects of sociology. It is published by Sage Publications on behalf of the American Sociological Association. It was established in 1936. The current editors-in-chief are Larry Isaac and Holly McCammon (Vanderbilt University).


For its first thirty years, the American Sociological Society (now the American Sociological Association) was largely dominated by the sociology department of the University of Chicago, and the quasi-official journal of the association was Chicago's American Journal of Sociology. In 1935, the executive committee of the American Sociological Society voted 5 to 4 against disestablishing the American Journal of Sociology as the official journal of society, but the measure was passed onto for consideration of the general membership which voted 2 to 1 to establish a new journal independent of Chicago: the American Sociological Review.[1]
