Social Sciences & Humanities Open is a home for open scholarship from across the social science and humanities disciplines. The journal offers rigorous peer review and fast publication. Our scope is inclusive: we encourage multi- and inter-disciplinary work as well as new and experimental forms of research, replication studies and negative findings. All submissions will be evaluated based on their academic and methodological validity and robustness of research.
As an open-access journal, we are committed to growing the transparency of research in manners compatible with the needs of social science and humanities scholars. We are partnering with SSRN to provide SSHO: First Look, a pre-print site on which participating research will be showcased while it undergoes the review process. This will allow researchers to have very early access to forthcoming work, as well as supporting researchers in the early distribution of their research.
