A premier journal in its field, JHSSR was established in 2019, and has been in circulation since then. Horizon currently publishes semi-annually. The journal uses a stringent double-blind peer-review process and follows code of conduct stipulated by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
It primarily publishes for dissemination of academic research meant for scholars and scientists worldwide. It publishes on non-profitable basis and does not have any income from subscription or other sources. The journal does not impose any publication or page fee on authors intending to publish in Horizon journals. It however imposes a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) upon acceptance to cover the costs of peer review administration and management, professional production of articles in PDF and other formats, and dissemination of published papers in various venues, and website maintenance, in addition to other publishing functions.
JHSSR is distributed worldwide to more than 1,000 institutions, in addition to the authors upon request. To provide expert evaluation of the various segments of the broad spectrum of Humanities and Social Sciences research, the editorial office is assisted by scholars who serve as Associate Editors, editorial board members, and ad hoc reviewers chosen for their expertise. They provide constructive evaluation and fair and rapid editorial processing.
The frequency of citations to articles published in JHSSR by scientists, students, and others increases each year.
The objectives and purpose of the Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences Research (JHSSR) are to unite researchers undertaking comparative projects across the region with an aim to provide a forum for global collaboration and discussion of issues in the practice of Humanities and Social Sciences research.
Our goal is to bring the highest quality research to the widest possible audience. Our motto is “Today's research, tomorrow's impact”.
