UW is Selected as Next Editorial Home for Demography, 2022-2025

Posted: 11/12/2021 (CSDE Research)

The Population Association of America has selected Sara Curran and a team of 25 editorial board members to lead the association’s flagship journal, Demography, for the next three years – from May 2022 through April 2025. Curran, CSDE Director, will be joined by an editorial board of UW faculty in Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Public Policy, Sociology, and Statistics, along with an equal number of faculty from Duke University, Emory University, the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, National University of Singapore, Princeton University, Stanford University, the University of British Columbia, the University of California at Santa Barbara, the University of California at Riverside, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Minnesota. Demography has just moved to an open access platform with Duke University Press and this new organization presents good opportunities for further growing the impact of population research more broadly.

This exciting news is important recognition of the invaluable networks of collaboration with demographers across the country and the University of Washington’s capacities for demographic research. A decade ago, under the leadership of the Professor Emeritus Stewart Tolnay, UW also served as the editorial team home for Demography. CSDE is honored to be selected again and to support outstanding demographic research. UW and CSDE are picking up the editorial reins from Professor Mark Hayward and the Population Research Center at the University of Texas where the journal has been extremely well-managed and grown its scientific impact.
