Population Review publishes scholarly research that covers a broad range of social science disciplines, including demography, sociology, social anthropology, socioenvironmental science, communication, and political science.

The journal emphasizes empirical research and strives to advance knowledge on the interrelationships between demography and sociology. 

The editor welcomes submissions that combine theory with solid empirical research.  Articles that are of general interest to population specialists are also desired.  

In addition to articles, the journal publishes research notes, which are condensed reports of study results. Research notes are peer-reviewed, contain abstracts, and can be purely descriptive.  

International in scope, the journal’s focus is not limited by geography.  Submissions are encouraged from scholars in both the developing and developed world.

Content is published online immediately after acceptance.
