As a benefit of membership, MSS members receive two hard-copy publications. Use the links below to view web pages for each publication:

The Sociological Quarterly [TSQ]
is one of the leading generalist journals in sociology.  TSQ is a quarterly, 
co-edited by Betty A. Dobratz of Iowa State University; 
and Lisa K. Waldner, of the University of St. Thomas.

The Midwest Sociologist  [TMS]
includes three mailings:  A twice-yearly newsletter sent in October and May; and an annual meeting registration packet sent in January. The newsletter is the primary vehicle for informing MSS members about the annual meetings.  Michael Haedicke of Drake University is Executive Editor.  

E-news from MSS
is a brief update emailed to MSS members 8-10 times a year.  
E-news notifies members of member elections, board meetings, committee meetings, and deadlines for grant applications and award nominations. 
  During the months immediately preceding the annual meeting, e-news arrives more frequently and brings important reminders, deadlines, and annual meeting updates to MSS members.  

MSS members who attend the annual meeting also receive an annual meeting program book.
The program book lists all meeting sessions and papers, along with the names of all the meeting participants. To view program books from past meetings beginning in 2006, click to 'Past Meetings.'

Beginning in 2011, the printed program book that is distributed at the meeting is labelled as a draft program. After the annual meeting, withdrawn papers, cancelled sessions, and other corrections are made to the draft program, and an amended permanent program is published online.

See permanent programs for 2011 and subsequent years at 'Past Meetings.' 

Wiley-Blackwell, publisher of MSS's journal, The Sociological Quarterly, has launched a smart-phone app for sociologists.  "Sociology Spotlight" is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.  Among other things, the new app contains abstracts for MSS's own TSQ.  It is free and available for download at the iTunes store.
