Open Access Policy:
Focus and Scope
The Annals of Humanities and Development Studies publishes papers in all aspects of humanities and rural, social and cultural development, including peace and international cooperation activities related to societal transformation in developing countries. Papers arising from original research and case studies or forming significant reviews will be evaluated for publication. Submitted papers are subject to a peer review by reputable researchers who are experts in the relevant fields. Our referees will evaluate the quality of research as well as the relevance and accessibility of a paper for an international audience.
Peer Review Process
Manuscripts received at the editorial office are reviewed by the Editor-in-chief to establish suitability for publication in Annals of Humanities and Development Studies. The Editor-in-Chief will then further review for academic/scientific merit and if determined acceptable, the paper is emailed to the appropriate reviewer(s). The Editorial Board bears the heaviest burden for the review process but outside reviewers may be selected in the field of the submitted manuscript. Upon review (normally within 4-6 weeks), papers considered acceptable are returned to authors for suggested changes and final approval. A manuscript rejected by review will be released to the author as unsuitable for publication. A split decision on the merits of a manuscript will be decided by the Editor-in-Chief.
This journal publishes 2 issues per year.
