Focus and Scope
Our peer-reviewed open-access journal offers a forum for researchers, academics, and professional experts, publishing studies and research reports in the fields of sociology, social policy, political science, economics, ethnography, history and anthropology. Recently, there has been an increasing demand among social scientists to learn about the results from other fields and to discover new research pathways and research methods beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries.
