Aims and Scope

The Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) is an esteemed international, peer-reviewed publication that focuses on a wide range of scientific disciplines and academic research areas dedicated to the study of social groups and human society. Our mission is to provide a platform for scholars, researchers, and practitioners to share innovative and impactful research findings, theoretical contributions, and practical insights that can inform and shape public policy, social welfare, and human development.

The scope of JSS is broad and inclusive, encompassing diverse disciplines such as sociology, psychology, anthropology, economics, political science, communication studies, education, social work, and cultural studies. We encourage interdisciplinary research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries to address complex social issues and challenges. JSS welcomes submissions that explore the complex dynamics of human behavior, social structures, institutions, and cultures, and their impact on individuals, communities, and societies.

We invite original research articles, theoretical papers, empirical studies, literature reviews, and critical analyses that shed light on social issues, challenges, and trends from local, national, and global perspectives. The journal welcomes research that employs diverse methodologies, including quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods, and interdisciplinary approaches, to generate new knowledge and insights in the field of social sciences.

In addition to traditional social science fields, JSS also publishes articles on extended areas of social science, such as environmental studies, sustainability, gender studies, social justice, human rights, and other emerging research areas that contribute to a deeper understanding of social phenomena and their implications for individuals and societies.

JSS is committed to the timely dissemination of research results and ideas to our global readership, publishing continuously. Our editorial team consists of distinguished scholars and practitioners in the field of social science who are committed to maintaining the highest standards of academic rigor and editorial excellence. We welcome submissions that make significant contributions to advancing our understanding of the complex social dynamics that shape human life in diverse societies and contexts.
