Submitting material for publication
Research articles submitted to the Journal of International Social Studies are refereed using a double-blind peer review process with reviewers from relevant disciplines. Articles should be 6000 words or less including references but we also accept longer articles if there is a key need for the length. NO FEES are charged for publication or subscription.
Submission of book reviews, opinion pieces and commentary on international issues that are of interest to Social Studies practitioners at classroom, college or university or community level are welcome and are rigorously reviewed by the editorial team and advisors. These would usually be less than 3000 words.

Frequency of Publication
The journal will publish twelve issues per year, and the editors are committed to providing scholarship as open access, and NO FEES are charged for publication or subscription. This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
Peer Review Process
All submissions to all the journal sections are subject to a preliminary internal review by an Editor (member of the Editorial Team). Those submissions deemed appropriate for publication in the journal are then anonymised and subjected to blind appraisal by two reviewers if a research article. The Media Review, International Perspectives and Social Justice sections of the journal section of the journal are non-peer reviewed sections of the journal. However, submissions to these sections are subject to a rigorous editorial review. Plagiarism is monitored by scrutiny of established scholars in the field as well as via electronic checking via Google and Turnitin.

Our international Editorial Board includes scholars with well-recognised reputations in the Social Studies. We regularly ensure these people wish to continue to provide guidance for our journal and elicit support from highly esteemed scholars in the field.
