This article is an update of the March 2009 article.
It is impossible to list all new books in the field; we did our best scouting different resources and websites. The list is also focusing only on books published in English. Books are listed based on the relevance to the topic and no judgment is made in terms of quality of the content. We let the reader do so.
New Journals / Journal News
Longitudinal and Life Course Studies (LLCS) is a new journal that brings together the broad range of specialist fields undertaking and using longitudinal and life course research. It will help to reduce inter-disciplinary barriers and encourage the application of findings in policy and practice.
The journal will be of interest internationally to academics and policy makers working at the interface of social, developmental and health sciences, including psychology, education, epidemiology, genetics, sociology, economics, demography, geography, criminology, political science, policy studies, history and statistics. It will also appeal to those concerned with all types of methodological development of relevance to life course and longitudinal research.
The Bulletin of Sociological Methodology (BMS) is now published (starting from January 2010) by SAGE in a new partnership with the International Association of Sociological Methodology (AIMS). Previous issues are archived on the SAGE journal’s website starting from 1983.
