2016 Editorial Report – Section Journal

2016 Editorial Report
APSA Religion & Politics Organized Section Business Meeting
September 1, 2016

Dear Council and Section Members,

Now in our fifth and final(!) year of editorial operation, we are pleased to report on the health of the journal and our management of it. Submissions are up, we are publishing 4 issues a year, authors receive decisions expeditiously, we receive manuscripts from all over the earth, the journal continues to break into new abstracting databases, and we are proud of the quality of research that has appeared in the journal’s pages. Before we proceed to a review of the life of the journal under our watch, we wish to thank the authors for allowing us to consider their work and the generous and thoughtful reviewers of submissions, including our Editorial Board members, some of whom have reviewed multiple times for us.
