Journal of Population and Social Studies (JPSS) welcomes contributions from the fields of demography, population studies and other related disciplines including health sciences, sociology, anthropology, population economics, population geography, human ecology, political science, statistics, and methodological issues. Priority is given to original research articles, research reports, review articles and book reviews that are of interest to the academic community, policy-makers and practitioners.
JPSS is now an online journal. There is no charge for publication.
Preparation of manuscript: A manuscript should be prepared in American English and should not exceed 8,000 words (about 25 pages, double spacing). It must follow the APA standard format and style for academic papers, especially with regard to in-text citations and references. Guidelines for preparing the manuscript are provided at the Guidelines for Preparing Manuscripts link above. Authors are recommended to consult these guidelines before submitting their manuscripts. Manuscripts that are not prepared in the required format will not be considered for peer review.
Review process: Manuscripts are first reviewed internally by the JPSS editors. Those that meet the journal's requirements for content, language, length, and format of citations and references will be sent for external peer review. The review process usually takes about 6-8 weeks.
Revision and language editing: Reviewed manuscripts may need revisions. In addition, those considered to be publishable in terms of the content may require additional language editing. Authors of the manuscripts are responsible for the costs incurred for editing, if recommended.
