Irish Journal of Applied Social Studies

  • IJASS aims to publish papers from across the social sciences and related applied areas, including social work, social policy, community development, education, criminology, youth work, psychology,sociology, family studies, social care, early education and related areas.
  • Manuscripts may be pre-screened to ensure they fit the aims and scope of the Journal. It is editorial policy that manuscripts are sent to two anonymous peer reviewers. Our aim is to make a decision on each manuscript within 3 months.
  • Proposals for special theme issues are also welcome. While the primary area of focus is applied social studies in Ireland, submissions from other regions are also welcome, particularly those that provide a comparative perspective.
