JPSS has been accepted for inclusion in Scopus!

We are pleased to announce that Journal of Population and Social Studies (JPSS) has just been accepted for inclusion in Scopus!

JPSS has continued publishing quality articles throughout the past 29 years. In order to become an international journal recognised by well-known organisations, JPSS has gone through a vast improvement in the recent years. As a result, JPSS was first listed in Thai-Journal Citation Index (TCI) in 2011, ASEAN Citation Index (ACI) in 2015, and POPLINE in 2016.

Only in early November 2017, JPSS has signed an agreement to be included in EBSCO and J-Gate, the leading provider of research databases, e-journals, magazine subscriptions, e-books and discovery service to libraries of all kinds.

Not only with EBSCO and J-Gate, very recently, JPSS has been accepted for inclusion in Scopus!

This is a great news for JPSS. We will continue to thrive to publish quality articles, maintain the journal's high standard and seek for further opportunities to promote works and provide a platform for the researchers, academicians, professional, practitioners and graduate students from all around the world in the field of population and social studies.
