About the Journal

Review of Social Studies (RoSS) is an interdisciplinary journal. The principal purpose of the journal is to publish lucid and well-documented peer-reviewed articles that discuss significant social, legal and political issues in an international context. Wide-ranging in scope, the journal welcomes scholarly essays that cut across disciplinary boundaries, and reflect original and critical thinking on the latest developments in the theory and practice of social sciences. These areas include, but are not limited to, the fields of anthropology, sociology, law, politics, history, international relations, culture, gender, migration, diaspora and ethnic studies.

RoSS publishes two issues a year (Spring and Autumn). One of these may be a special issue composed of selected conference papers. RoSS has also a book review section which reflects academic and intellectual diversity in recent social science publications.
