Chapters, Volumes, Editors! Oh My! Reassessing the Role of Edited Volumes in the Social Sciences

  • David L. Leal (a1)
Abstract
Abstract

Many scholars discount the value of edited volumes and book chapters to the social science enterprise. Nevertheless, these unique formats advance scholarship, help faculty and graduate students achieve their goals, and enhance teaching and learning. This article therefore assesses the criticisms of volumes and chapters, reconsiders the contributions of these publications, and makes recommendations for improving their accessibility and status.
