Scope of the Journal
Sri Lanka Journal of Social Sciences (SLJSS) was launched in 1978 as a premier social science journal in Sri Lanka. Published twice a year (in June and December), it entertains social science contributions in the form of Research articles, Review articles, Work-in-progress articles and Correspondence, and publishes invited Book Reviews. The journal publishes social science articles in Sinhala, Tamil and English languages, on topics relevant to Sri Lanka in particular and South Asia in general. All papers are subjected to double-blind peer-review. The journal provides open access to all its articles through the Sri Lanka Journals Online (SLJOL) forum supported by the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP). All articles in the journal are published under the Creative Commons License ‘Attribution-No Derivatives - CC BY-ND 4.0’ since 2018. SLJSS is indexed in SCOPUS and ESCI.
The Editorial Board of the SLJSS seeks to develop this journal as a forum for Social Scientists working on Sri Lanka, including those currently working abroad. Being an official publication of the premier government agency responsible for promoting scientific research in Sri Lanka, the SLJSS also provides an important window for influencing policy and action at various levels. This journal has wide circulation within Sri Lanka and abroad.
SLJSS provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
