Rural Sociology Journal
printed by Wiley Blackwell
Published since 1937, RURAL SOCIOLOGY reaches an international audience of social scientists, policy makers, and agency professionals concerned with rural people, places, and problems. It provides a forum for cutting edge research that explores inter-disciplinary approaches to emerging issues, new approaches to older questions and material, and policy relevant discussions of rural development, environmental impacts, the structure of food and agricultural production, and rural-urban linkages. In addition to its long-time interest in sociological approaches to rural policy challenges, RS also emphasizes a variety of other issues such as community revitalization and rural demographic changes.
