The Journal of Poverty:  Innovations on Social, Political & Economic
Inequalities is a refereed journal designed to provide an outlet for discourse
on poverty and inequality.  Poverty means more than "the condition or quality
of being poor; need; indigence; lack of means of subsistence."  It also refers
to "deficiency in necessary properties or desirable qualities, or in a specific
quality; inferiority; inadequacy."  The editorial board welcomes manuscripts
which sensitize social scientists and practitioners to the varied forms and
patterns of inequalities, new developments in cultural diversity, and
interventions promoting equality and social justice.

Articles guided by conceptual analyses involving quantitative and qualitative
methods are encouraged.  The intent is to produce and disseminate information
on poverty and social, political, and economic inequalities and to offer a
means by which nontraditional strategies for change might be considered.  The
journal is concerned with various levels of intervention ranging from direct
practice to community organization to social policy analysis.  Manuscripts
should increase knowledge of oppressive forces, such as racism, sexism,
classism, and homophobia, which contribute to the maintenance of poverty and
inequality and suggest methods of change leading towards their eradication.

The Journal of Poverty is now in its ninth year of publication and is published
quarterly by Haworth Press, Inc.

Submissions should reflect the mission of the Journal.  Authors should submit
five copies of the manuscript.  Manuscripts should be double spaced and no
longer than 30 pages (including text, references, footnotes, tables, and
figures).  Please include an abstract of no more than 100 words.  References
and format should follow APA style.  Manuscripts will be peer reviewed by at
least three referees and returned with comments.  For more information on the
mission of the Journal and author instructions, visit our web site:
