Brill launches Brill Open Social Sciences

Following an earlier announcement Brill is now proud to open Brill Open Social Sciences – An International Journal for submissions. Brill Open Social Sciences is meant to be a broad dedicated publication platform for papers from all branches in social sciences. The scope of the journal includes areas like applied social sciences, area studies, comparative social sciences, critical social sciences, economics and business science, global studies, international relations, political science, psychology, religion and society, sociology and anthropology, youth and adolescence, and communication studies.

The editors of Brill Open Social Sciences are aiming for the highest scholarly standards. Submitted papers are subject to double-blind peer review and accepted only if methodologically sound and relevant. Upon acceptance articles will be published within four to six weeks. Critical supplementary author materials like research data, audio, and video can be added at no extra costs. The standard license is CC-BY. For 2014 and 2015 the Article Publication Charge is set at a moderate EUR 495 / USD 655.
