About the Journal
Social Issues Quarterly is a National journal that is heading towards an international open access, scholarly, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal publishing theoretically innovative and methodologically diverse research in the fields of social issues. Our conception on both theory and method is broad and encompassing, and we welcome contributions from scholars around the world.
Social Issues Quarterly published fourth issues a year on October, January, April, and July.
All articles must not have been published or be under consideration elsewhere. We are unable to pay for permissions to publish pieces whose copyright is not held by the author. Contributors will be responsible for clearing all copyright permissions before submitting translations, illustrations or long quotes. The views expressed in papers are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the journal or its editor.
All articles will be peer-reviewed and will be submitted electronically to the journal. The editors ensure that all submissions are refereed anonymously by two readers in the relevant field. In the event of widely divergent opinion during this process, a third referee will be asked to comment, and the decision to publish taken on that recommendation. We expect that the editorial process will take up to two months. We will allow up to two weeks for contributors to send in revised manuscripts with corrections.
