AIM & SCOPE
The journal “Advanced Humanities and Social Sciences” (AHSS) is double blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal that explores the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences. AHSS interprets these fields in an inclusive sense, in different theoretical, geographical and historical contexts. Its diversity is apparent in the variety of theories, methods and approaches, thus avoiding the frequent limitation to one school, approach or academic branch.
AHSS invites theoreticians and practitioners to submit manuscripts embracing the full range of quantitative and/or qualitative research methods, reviews or short communications containing new insights into any aspect of Humanities and Social Sciences. AHSS particularly welcomes manuscripts which explore inspirational ideas in Humanities and Social Sciences, are written in innovative ways, are presented in experimental ways.
AHSS also invites to submit proposals for thematic issues dealing with a broad range of subjects. These may include:
- Art and Media
- History, criticism and theory of the arts
- Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture
- Language, both modern and classical
- Religious Studies
- Political science;
All manuscripts are normally reviewed by at least two referees (in addition to the Editor-in-chief). Refereeing is anonymous unless a referee chooses otherwise. Referees’ comments are passed intact to authors, apart from occasional editing. Proofs should be returned to the Editor-in-chief as soon as possible. The Editorial board has the right to reject a manuscript if after the first review it is submitted repeatedly wit unsatisfactory corrections. The selection of manuscripts for inclusion in AHSS will be based on these reviews.
Manuscripts should be written in a clear, concise style appropriate to an international readership. Familiar technical terms may be used without explanation. Acronyms and abbreviations are likely to need full presentation at least once. Authors are required to avoid the use of sexist language.
