Social Science Journal
Our peer-reviewed open-access journal offers a forum for researchers, academics, and professional experts, publishing studies and research reports in the fields of sociology, social policy, political science, economics, ethnography, history and anthropology. Recently, there has been an increasing demand among social scientists to learn about the results from other fields and to discover new research pathways and research methods beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. Our journal provides a professional and scientific space for Hungarian and international academics engaged in these cutting-edge explorations.
The Journal of Public and Professional Sociology call for papers:
"Teaching Sociology: Sharing Pedagogical Practices"
Higher education is changing. People are adopting all sorts of innovations. The classroom and online education are not what they once were. We are sure that many of our readers have developed exciting new ways to convey information to students. We are now inviting you to share these.
Both full length papers and teaching notes are welcome. Teaching notes summarize a teaching approach, technique, exercise, or assignment. Teaching notes should be approximately 15 pages.
Full length articles go beyond the teaching note summary and are based on research evaluation, analysis, theory and assessment. Full length articles should be approximately 25 pages.
Please submit your manuscripts at http://digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/jpps/
