Aim & Scope

The Korean Social Science Journal (KSSJ) aims to contribute substantially to the Korean social sciences in terms of theory as well as methodology. It also aims to play a role of informing scholars and policymakers abroad of research findings in Korean social sciences. In order to do so, the KSSJ welcomes those articles that either link different areas of social sciences together or explore Korean socio-cultural phenomena from a comparative perspective. More generally, KSSJ seeks articles from academicians and practitioners on a broad range of topics in social sciences, as well as proposals for featured topics. KSSJ does not necessarily represent the views of the Korean Social Science Research Council (KOSSREC).
