Subject: ASA partners with SAGE to publish its journals

***** Apologies for cross posting****

The American Sociological Association partners with SAGE to publish its
influential journals

Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC (July 6,
2009) - SAGE is very pleased to announce it has signed an agreement to
partner with the American Sociological Association (ASA) to publish
eight of its journals beginning in 2010 and 2012.

The journals are American Sociological Review, ASA's flagship journal
and the number-one-ranked journal in sociology, Contemporary Sociology:
A Journal of Reviews, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Social
Psychology Quarterly, Sociology of Education, and Teaching Sociology
(all to be published by SAGE in 2010); and Sociological Methodology and
Sociological Theory (published by SAGE beginning in 2012).

The American Sociological Association is a non-profit membership
association, based in Washington, DC, dedicated to advancing sociology
as a scientific discipline and profession serving the public good.
Founded in 1905, ASA has nearly 15,000 members, including college and
university faculty, and researchers at public institutions and in the
private sector. Its members participate in 44 special interest sections
and its journals are among the best in the field.

"Forming a publishing partnership with SAGE is a very significant step
for the Association, one we believe will be extremely beneficial to our
members and to the discipline of sociology," said ASA Executive Officer
Sally Hillsman. "SAGE has long provided significant publishing support
to sociology, and this is a particularly important time for our
discipline nationally and internationally. The leadership of the
American Sociological Association seeks to ensure the Association's
journals are at the core of a robust sociological and interdisciplinary
scholarly communication system that strengthens our discipline and
contributes to the well being of society. I am confident that ASA's
partnership with SAGE will move us forward in achieving these goals."

Publishers' proposals were judged on the strength of their list in
sociology and related fields and on the publisher's reputation and

"We couldn't be more pleased that ASA has selected SAGE as its publisher
and are delighted to be working with the Association to grow and
strengthen its publishing program," said Alison Mudditt, SAGE Executive
Vice President. "The ASA's prestigious journals will increase the
quality of our already strong list in sociology. Our extensive online
presence, marketing efforts, and international sales team will help
heighten worldwide visibility for ASA's journals."

Subject: Project MUSE News: MUSE Releases Search and Custom Print Features

New Discovery Features, Sheridan Custom Print Now Available on MUSE

Project MUSE is excited to announce two new features that help users more
easily locate articles relevant to their research. MUSE also introduces a
new option to custom print and package articles in MUSE journals.

The new features are:

- A 'Search this Journal' search box. This search box appears on each
journal's home page, on the Table of Contents (TOC) of each issue, and on
each article. The 'Search This Journal' feature enables a user to quickly
check all issues of the journal in MUSE, with a single search, for all
articles in that journal pertaining to a particular subject.

- Summaries (abstracts) for articles. MUSE now provides a link for the
summary of each article. Users know that the ability to scan summaries of
articles is essential to determining which articles are relevant to their
research. That ability is now available in MUSE. The Summary links appear
on the TOCs and in search results, next to the article format options of

New Option for Custom Print

Custom Print is a service provided by Sheridan Press that allows a user to
click on a link from MUSE and purchase an article or groups of articles
for the purpose of creating a custom publication. MUSE is one of the first
online providers to activate this service. The user may choose either
print or electronic format for the purchased articles. At this time,
articles contained in 'The American Indian Quarterly' published by the
University of Nebraska Press are the only articles in MUSE for which this
option is available. On the article page, look for the link 'Custom Print'
to initiate the transaction.

MUSE on Facebook

MUSE has been on Facebook for some time now, but we just secured our own
URL and wanted to pass the word on to MUSE users. Find MUSE at Become a fan of MUSE! You can also follow us
on Twitter, @ProjectMUSE.
