Rural Social Sciences
The Official Journal of the Southern Rural Sociological Association
Beginning in 2010, The Journal of Rural Social Sciences (JRRS) replaces Southern Rural Sociology as the official journal of the Southern Rural Sociological Association. Submission to JRSS assumes that the authors are willing adherents to the anonymous peer-review process, that the manuscript is not being reviewed by another journal and that the authors have followed the JRSS Manuscript Style Guide. Final decision to accept a manuscript for publication is made by the Editors, who rely on the recommendations of anonymous reviewers.
JRSS has a submission fee. The submission fee is $20 if the first author is a member of the Southern Rural Sociological Association and $30 if the first author is not a member of the organization. Checks should be made payable to the Southern Rural Sociological Association (or SRSA). Send the submission fee to the editors at the address listed below.
JRSS accepts submissions in electronic format (Microsoft Word) from a single, designated, corresponding author who will be responsible for all subsequent communication with the editor. For tracking purposes, the corresponding author should use the same e-mail address that appears in the submission proper when communicating with the editor. If the corresponding author is submitting more than one article, he or she should submit each article in a separate email.
The corresponding author should send the article to email@example.com as an email attachment. The corresponding author should include a complete mailing address (with zip code) in the email message accompanying the attached article so that review results can be returned at the appropriate time.
