Aims and scope

SN Social Sciences is a multi- and interdisciplinary journal serving the Social Sciences community. 


The journal’s scope is inclusive; we encourage the submission of original research and review articles from theoretical, policy and methodological perspectives. Submissions are evaluated on their academic rigor and methodological soundness.
