An author is a person who has a substantial contribution to the article; all other contributions should be mentioned as acknowledgments. Authors should cite only the articles which have contributed to their work; unnecessary citations should not be listed. Authors should present their work as objectively as possible. Arguments that discriminate people by race, sex, origin, religion, etc. are not accepted. Bogus results must not be given. Reviewers should not take advantages from the manuscript; instead, they should help the authors to improve their work. Reviewers should not criticize in public the manuscripts. The Editor guarantees the anonymity of the reviewer. FHSS operates a single blind review process. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor-in-chief for suitability for the Journal. Papers which are suitable are sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The reviewer can be a member of the FHSS Editorial Board or an expert from the worldwide scientific community. The review period depends from the research topic of the manuscript and the availability of the reviewers. An average review process period is between 1 - 60 days. In general, the reviewers check the importance of the article in the scientific community, if it is easy to read it and the validity of the scientific content. An article can be rejected from the reviewers’ due lack of poor language quality, lack of proper structure, lack of new scientific ideas, lack of clear concepts or conclusions. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of the articles.
All articles will have a digital object identifier (DOI). DOIs are standardized digital identities used across all major scientific publishers. DOIs can be used to cite and link to electronic articles. A DOI is guaranteed to never change, so can be used as a persistent identifier to permanently link to an electronic article no matter where it is stored. So, when referring to an article you can either use the traditional reference information (name of publication, volume, issue, etc.), or use the DOI.
We strive to have our journal Frontiers in Humanities and Social Sciences (FHSS) indexed by all main databases. The Abstracting and Indexing databases that cover FHSS will be coming soon such as Google Scholar, CNKI, Wanfang, etc.
