Catholic Social Science Review


Through a collegiality of Catholic scholars, professors, researchers, practitioners, and writers, the SCSS brings rigorous, credible scholarship to political, social and economic questions. SCSS members approach their work in both a scholarly and evangelical spirit. They are expected to strictly observe the highest scholarly and professional requirements of their disciplines as they examine their data in light of Church teaching.

SCSS membership is open to Catholics involved in the social sciences or disciplines concerned with social questions (e.g., moral theology, ethics) and who possess an advanced degree (i.e., beyond a bachelor's) or are full-time students in a master's degree or equivalent program. Non-Catholics who are knowledgeable about and support the Catholic Church's teachings and the purposes of the Society may become special associate members.
