The Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Peshawar, a peer-reviewed journal, invites papers in the field of social sciences, humanities, business and management, and journalism. Manuscripts (a softcopy on a CD, and two double-spaced hardcopies) should not exceed 7000 words (including endnotes and references) with an informative abstract (250 words maximum), and a crossed cheque of Rs. 3000 (Pak Rupees three thousand only; non refundable) payable to “the Editor, JHSS.” They should be composed in MS Word, Times New Roman, and Font Size 12. Figures, tables, graphs (if any) should not be out of the margins of the text of the paper. Quotations in languages other than English must be translated in the body of the paper, and accompanied by the original in the endnotes. The author’s name, title/designation, e-mail and mailing addresses and institutional affiliation should appear on a separate title page. It is also important that you carefully proofread your paper, and that it is accompanied by a Turnitin similarity index report in soft form. JHSS will also check submissions for plagiarism.
The Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences consider one single-authored (as principle author) and one co-authored (must not exceed two) by the same author for publication per number.
The Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences follows a variant of APA/MLA styles to accommodate the multi-disciplinarian work that the journal features. References must indicate full name(s) of author(s), editor(s), year of publication, city of publication, publisher’s full name, and page numbers. References at the end of papers in a latest issue of our journal are a good immediate guide for potential contributors. Papers not following these guidelines will not be processed.
All correspondence related to the journal should be addressed to the Editor.
