International Social Science Journal

(ISSN 1468-2451)


Aims and Scope

The International Social Science Journal bridges social science communities across disciplines and continents with a view to sharing information and debate with the widest possible audience. The ISSJ has a particular focus on interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary work that pushes the boundaries of current approaches, and welcomes both applied and theoretical research. Originally founded by UNESCO in 1949, ISSJ has since grown into a forum for innovative review, reflection and discussion informed by recent and ongoing international, social science research. It provides a home for work that asks questions in new ways and/or employs original methods to classic problems and whose insights have implications across the disciplines and beyond the academy.

The journal publishes regular editions featuring rigorous, peer-reviewed research articles that reflect its international and heterodox scope. ISSJ also publishes special issues devoted to specific themes that the Editorial Office typically commissions from an external Editorial Adviser who acts as curator and guest editor. The journal may release a call for papers for these special issues.
