Journals and Publications in 1963–64

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Several changes took place under the editorship of Marvin Sussman. He changed the name of Marriage and Family Living to The Journal of Marriage and the Family. A new cover design was used. The revised journal included an enlarged book review section; the regular publication of letters to the editor and rejoinders; article-length book review of a series of books on the same topic; an abstract at the beginning of each article; and publication, regardless of length, of critical and evaluative papers on particular marriage and family issues. New associate editors were added. William Kenkel became the editor of  the “Articles in Brief” section. Rose M. Somerville became editor of the “Teacher Exchange for High Schools and Colleges” section. The number of journal pages expanded to 128, 80% of which were predominantly sociologically oriented research articles. Back issues became available in bound volumes from Krause Reprint Corporation. Finally, a monograph review board was established, with Reuben Hill, Ivan Nye, and Mirra Komarovsky as members.
