In the broadest sense, social sciences encompass society, human behavior, and its influence on the world. Social sciences help understand how society works, ranging from the causes of unemployment, economic growth, what makes people happy, and so on. The information it provides is vital for governments and policymakers, non-governmental organizations, and local authorities.
Social studies cover a wide range of disciplines:
Anthropology – the study of human behavior, cultural relations, evolution effects on the social structure, and more
Demography – the study of population changes and trends
Development studies – the study of social and economic issues in developing and low-income countries
Human geography – the study of the world, people, and cultures focussing on human impact on physical geography
Economics – addresses critical questions about the goods production and exchange and how individuals interact within society
Education – the study of how people learn and develop
Linguistics – the study of the form, context, and meaning of the human language
Politics – focused on democracy and relationship between people and policies
Psychology, social psychology – the study of the human mind and how other factors influence the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
Sociology – the study of society on the individual and structural level covering classes, religions, and social mobility
Social policy and social work – analysis of societal needs and changes with the focus on important society, economy, and policy aspectsLaw is one of the many social science disciplines focusing on government-created rules to ensure an orderly society. Therefore, just like other social science disciplines, the law deals with people's social lives.
Social sciences journals have the primary purpose of publishing scholarly work related to the various social science subjects mentioned above. The research published by these journals has a broad and inclusive scope which can take a theoretical, speculative, statistical, and mathematical model. All articles in social science journals undergo the peer review process, making sure only high-quality work gets published.
Articles illustrating the use of quantitative methods for empirical testing of the social science theory are always welcome. Also, most journals welcome work concerning methods used by one social science discipline that may have a broader application, intending to test the social science theory.
The social science journals aspire to serve their communities by providing a robust forum where researchers and scholars can share their research and enhance communication.
The target audience for social science journals includes academics, researchers, social sciences specialists, schoolteachers, social science students, and everyone interested in the latest research in the many social science subjects. Most of these journals accept research papers, research reports, and book reviews. There are open-access free social sciences journals, but most of them are subscription-based.
AKJournals has a collection of four active social science journals and an archive of four ceased journals. Below are short descriptions of the active journals, including the fields they focus on:
This study aims to ascertain the research trends of articles on scientific literacy in primary schools. In the study, both bibliometric and content analysis techniques were employed. In the Web of Science database, 145 studies conducted between 1993 and 2021 and 60 studies conducted between 2002 and 2021 were included in the content analysis for bibliometric analysis. According to the findings, there is a rising interest in scientific literacy in primary schools. Bybee, R., and McCrae, B., were the most cited authors in this study. The United States was the most frequently cited country, and the Australian Council for Educational Research was the most frequently cited institution. Few mixed studies have been conducted on the topic of scientific literacy, as qualitative studies have dominated the field. As sample groups, primary school students and college graduates were favored. The study concluded that scientific literacy in primary school is mostly promoted by organizations, journals or authors in developed countries. The results of the study were discussed in light of the relevant literature, and suggestions for further studies were offered.
In light of the debates on the “feminisation of religion” that have animated historiography, during the Restoration one can distinguish two educational strategies towards the education of women. On the one hand, we can make out a symbolic system in which women, whether religious or married, fulfilled values that the male part of society seemed to deny or have forgotten. The same period, especially through the social action of the new religious congregations, saw an activity and a visibility that could not be attributed to a political dimension, but rather to a pre-political one. The relationship between women and the sacred conferred legitimacy on the reclusion of women, that is, the need for a confinement which constituted the physical and symbolic element of the continuity between the education given in monastic institutions and that of many nineteenth-century boarding schools for young women. Women's action outside the classroom belonged more to the sphere of the symbolic than to that of the useful, and, in any case, were founded on an essentially individual type of relationship.
The author analyses the education of aristocracy in Croatia and Slavonia from the late 18th century until 1918. Education played a vital role in the mindset and lifestyle of aristocracy, and in retaining its elite position in the political, social, cultural, economic and military aspect, to name just some. Aristocrats were trained to become the pillars of society, they had private tutors and teachers, and often finished the gymnasium but did not necessarily continue their schooling at a higher level. Reforms of enlightened absolutism, which opened career chances for lesser nobility and burghers and the rise of well-educated and economically successful modern middle class after 1848, forced the aristocracy to keep pace. However, it still preferred traditional studies of philosophy, law or, to a much lesser extent, theology and was losing its dominant role in the field of arts as well.
Case-based reasoning has high significance in constitutional adjudication. The constitutional courts of the Kelsenian model also follow their own previous decisions to develop their own case law, even if those decisions do not bind them formally. In the course of constitutional interpretation, to build coherent and predictable case law and determine constitutional principles and standards in a consistent way are also reasonable expectations of constitutional adjudication deriving from the rule of law. The paper analyses the case law of the Hungarian Constitutional Court from this perspective, regarding the criticism of public figures in defamation cases. It takes case-based reasoning as a measure of the case law of the HCC, reveals the tendencies and highlights the main problems associated with it.
The ECHR is a general human rights convention, but it contains some provisions that have gained particular importance in the case law of the ECtHR regarding the human rights of children. Such a provision is, among others, Article 8 on the right to respect for private and family life, the interpretation of which has raised many questions in cases related to children born through international surrogacy. These questions have arisen in relation to the intended parents' standing to bring an application before the Court on behalf of the child, the criteria for ascertaining the interference of the respondent state with the child's right to respect for his private and family life, as well as the specific content of the requirements that must be met for the interference to be justified. By analysing these questions and the answers the Court gave to them, this article attempts to give an overview of the state's obligations to ensure the right of a child born through international surrogacy to respect for his private and family life in connection with the recognition of the parent-child relationship between the intended parents and the child.
