Focus and Scope

Crossing the Border: International Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies is a peer-reviewed, open access international journal and appears twice a year in print and online. The journal publishes original research articles on all aspects of humanities and social sciences, and presents an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal, therefore, welcomes those articles, which combine and integrate theories and concepts that are taken from diverse topics and disciplines.

However, multidisciplinary in scope, the journal is interdisciplinary in content and approach. Disciplines and topics include, but are not limited to the following: humanities and social sciences.

The articles submitted to the journal should not previously be published or accepted for publication elsewhere, either in full or part, either in English or other languages. In addition, the authors have full responsibility for all that are expressed in their articles.

Peer Review Process

The submitted articles will pass through three stages: editors, desk editors and reviewers. All three personnel will assess the submitted manuscripts for originality, validity, and relevance.

The submitted articles will be reviewed by two or more reviewers who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is publishable or not. The editors will reach a decision based on the reports sent by the reviewers and consult with the editorial board.

In general, our journal operates a double-blinded review system. The reviewers will not be aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, including the reviewer reports provided to the authors.
