About the Journal

Aim and Scope

International Journal of Social Research and Innovation (IJSRI) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal of scholarly research. It was first published in 2017. We publish original and high-quality articles covering a wide range of topics in multidisciplinary research-based areas such as business, education, health, public policy, law, language, the arts, and culture.

IJSRI will treat all articles submitted for publication in exactly the same way, with rigorous peer review, professional editing and production, and worldwide visibility. All of our articles enjoy the same level of functionality on our website.

We invite the submission of manuscripts both focusing on research in the Maldives and on transnational and international issues and perspectives. We are looking for mainly the integrity of scholarship, innovative scholarship, and especially research that includes multiple viewpoints.

We accept manuscripts from scholars with different qualifications and a wide range of affiliations, some of whom may not be in academia. We accept manuscripts from junior scholars and graduate students.

We recommend the authors read articles already published in the journal, follow the style of formatting used in the published paper, and stay within the range of word counts of 6,000 to 10,000 words that we have given.

The editors, peer reviewers and authors are expected to read the ethics guideline for publishing in IJSRI.
