A premier journal in its field, JHSSR was established in 2019, and has been in circulation since then. Horizon is an open access journal that currently publishes semiannually. 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 aims to achieve its SCOPUS status within 2 years of publication.
JHSSR is distributed worldwide to more than 1000 institutions, in addition to 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.
To facilitate review, the Editor-in-Chief and the Chief Executive Editor previews all submitted manuscripts and independently or in consultation with an Associate Editor, decides if a manuscript is appropriate for review by members of JHSSR's editorial board and/or ad hoc reviewers. Manuscripts outside of the scope of JHSSR or those articles in poor English are returned without the delay of a full review, generally within a week of submission. Authors may contact the Chief Executive Editor in advance to inquire about the potential suitability of their research topic for review.
Manuscript submissions and inquiries are encouraged. Manuscript style and formatting are described in the "Instructions to Authors" under "Publish". Manuscript submissions should be made using JHSSR online manuscript submission system, or mailed through email to the Chief Executive Editor. Direct inquiries to [email protected]
