Information on the Journal

Editorial Statement

JSSP is a refereed academic imprint that specializes in the promotion of social policy and social studies Worldwide.

Aims of JSSP

The aim of the journal is to publish original material in societal and social policy widely conceived, thus extending the scope of traditional social policy journals to include much wider area of studies—
that is, social policy, women's policy, gender studies, labor market policy, poverty and income distribution, education policy, housing policy, health policy, population policy, democratization, multicultural society, social and religious movements, issues on society and security, environmental protection policy, and so forth.

The journal has a worldwide focus, articles on developing and developed countries from around the world are welcome. The editorial board would like to encourage expecially articles on countries in Latin America, Africa, all of Asia and the many island states that are left out elsewhere. The journal also aims at the coverage of societal and social policy issues in all countries in the developed world, be they large or small in size

The policy of the journal is to encourage younger and less well-established scholars to contribute as well as those who are more senior, and to foster a pluralistic approach to the study of societal and social policy. Views which are not compatible with prevailing orthodoxies are positively welcome, so long as they are rigorously argued.
