Since its establishment in 1907, the Russell Sage Foundation has regarded the publication and dissemination of social research as an essential part of its contribution to "the improvement of social and living conditions in America." As the principal American Foundation devoted exclusively to the social sciences and as one of the few foundations with a regular publishing program, Russell Sage continues to make a substantial contribution to the social science literature. The Foundation publishes books on a wide variety of subjects, with particular emphasis on work related to our programs: Cultural Contact, the Future of Work, Immigration, and Social Inequality. We also publish work based on special initiatives, such as the Russell Sage Foundation Series on Trust and the 9/11 Initiative, and we are the publisher of the American Sociological Association’s distinguished Rose Series in Sociology. RSF publications present the latest in high-quality social science research and are intended to appeal to a broad audience of students, scholars, and policymakers.

Announcing: RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences
The Russell Sage Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of a new social science journal, RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences. RSF is intended to promote cross-disciplinary collaborations on timely topics of interest to social scientists and other academic researchers, policymakers, and the public at large. Each issue will be thematic in nature and will focus on a specific research question or area of interest. The introduction to each issue will provide an accessible, broad, and synthetic overview of the research question under consideration and the current thinking from various fields. RSF will be a peer-reviewed, open-access journal of original empirical research by both established and emerging scholars. The first issue is scheduled to be published in fall 2015. Read more
