Social Indicators Research: A Case Study of the Development of a Journal
This is a review of the birth and development of one social science journal. I explain how it began, why I became the editor, why Reidel became the publisher, and why it has the format and style that it has. Operating policies and procedures are reviewed. Profiles of our output according to areas of concern and countries of origin are presented. Acceptance and rejection rates are considered. Problems with book reviews, marketing and complaints are described, and some future prospects are outlined.
