EDITORIAL MESSAGE FOR INCOMING MEMBERS
Welcoming new International Advisory Editors on Horizon Journal of Humanities & Social Sciences Research Board 2021–24
I am delighted to announce to the readership of the Horizon Journal of Humanities & Social Sciences Research (JHSSR) that we have once again been able to add an impressive list of outstanding scholars to our International Advisory Board, as well as persuading many highly esteemed colleagues to stay with us for a 3-year term.
One of the great strengths of Horizon JHSSR has been the involvement of many of the world’s leading scholars from the various fields of Humanities and Social Sciences on our Editorial Board. As you would be aware that members of the Editorial Board are crucial in facilitating the Editors’ desire to maintain high standards of scholarly excellence in the work we publish, we are extremely grateful for the invaluable work of our board members in contributing both to our rigorous peer-review system and to the strategic development of the Journal.
I am happy to welcome the following members whose experience across the breadth of disciplines related to the Humanities and Social Sciences will allow us to remain at the forefront of publishing original scholarship. It is time for us to look at the journal as truly international and continue to work hard to help the journal in climbing up the ranking ladder.
I am also very grateful to those board members who are serving their terms and now continue to serve the Board with our appreciation. They deserve much of the credit for this success story.
The Board currently represents scholars from 35 countries from around the globe and many of the finest academic institutions all over the world. A full list of the Editorial Board members 2021–2024 can be found on the inside cover of the Journal as well as on the website at https://horizon-jhssr.com/editorial-board.php.
This recognizes the international visibility of JHSSR and is the acknowledgement of its high quality in the growing field of knowledge, covering all aspects of Humanities and Social Sciences.
However, this also creates a pressure on the Editor of the journal and his team: how can we have the highest impact factor possible. The answer seems self-evident: to publish quality and innovative papers, which can serve as foundations for further research or provide keys to understanding important issues, thus having a high likelihood of being referenced and cited by researchers and scholars.
The international diversity among the team members should also contribute to the international visibility of JHSSR.
I look forward to working with our newly added members over the coming years. I welcome all our board members and extend a warm welcome once again to those who have decided to join our distinguished list of scholars.
