Amsterdam Social Science Journal is a hardcopy peer-reviewed journal that is published two times a year. As such it offers a platform for Master and PhD students to present and discuss their research.
We are constantly looking for new contributions of articles and essays for upcoming journal issues. The journal is open to empirical and/or theoretical articles as well as normative essays pertaining to all (sub)fields of social science.
Journal articles submitted will be peer-refereed and judged on the following criteria:
. Relevance and contribution to research field
. Originality of data and innovativeness of theory
. Argument structure and style
. Appeal and wider societal relevance
When submitting your article, please conform to the APA-style guide, write in British English and include both a short (1-4 lines) biography, a link to your personal webpage (if applicable) and an abstract of your paper. Articles should be between 4000 and 7000 words, essays between 2000 and 3000.
Note to newcomers:
Don’t let all those technical guidelines put you off! They are not as complicated as they might seem at first; the style guide helps with many examples. See the rather tedious activity of getting your text in shape as a useful excercise for future publications also in other academic journals. You’ll quickly get the hang of it!
