Editors

Humanities & Social Sciences Communications is run by a team of experienced editors comprising in-house Editors and an international Editorial Board.

The in-house Editors are responsible for the day-to-day management of the journal and its policies. This includes managing all editorial processes and supporting the Editorial Board members who oversee the peer review of submitted papers. The journal's Editorial Board comprises distinguished academics and researchers working across and between the humanities and social sciences, and allied fields. The Board's broad representation and deep expertise help ensure that the journal meets and reacts to the needs of the many communities we seek to serve. The Editorial Advisory Panel specifically provides input to the in-house editorial team on matters of journal policy and related issues.

All editors work together to ensure that submitted research is expertly handled and that they consider it to be technically sound, academically valid, and ultimately suitable for publication.
