Social Science Protocols is a new peer reviewed open-access online journal with a focus on publishing study reports in the social sciences, including the disciplines of anthropology, communication studies, economics, education, geography, history, law, linguistics, political sciences, psychology, social work and sociology.
Study protocols can be for proposed and ongoing studies, and should provide a detailed account of the research hypothesis, rationale and methodology of the study. Study protocols that have received funding from a major funding body and ethical approval will be published without peer review.
The editors Prof. Matthias Schwannauer and Dr. Laura Cariola are inviting researchers in the social sciences to submit study protocols for publication. We are also looking for academics to join the editorial board.
