The Zambia Social Science Journal is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published by the Southern African Institute for Policy and Research. The primary objective is to publish scholarly work in the social sciences and development. Serving as a forum for argument, debate, review, reflection, and discussion, the Journal is informed by the results of relevant and rigorous research. Articles are welcome from scholars and researchers at all career stages from within and outside Africa. Articles from any field within the social sciences relevant to Africa may be submitted.
The published papers are anonymously peer reviewed by at least three reviewers. Final acceptance or rejection of submitted papers rests with the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board reserves the right to refuse any material for publication. The Journal is published bi-annually, with editions coming out in May and November.
