Global Social Science Review (GSSR) was introduced by Humanity Only(HO) through the research project sponsored and guided by Humanity Research Council (HRC) — a sub-body of Humanity Development Council (HDS). GSSR intends to promote qualitative and quantitative researches and findings with the help of newly emerging tools and patterns utilized in experiments, observations, interviews, analysis and surveys by encircling all major segments of Social Sciences and Multidisciplinary academic and research disciplines. GSSR is a multi-disciplinary, quarterly, triple-blind peer-reviewed research journal which encompasses major disciplines of social science i.e. Government & Politics, Human & Society, Historical & Regional Studies and Education & Mass Studies in general with specific interest in the sub-disciplines detailed atwww.gssrjournal.com.
Mission & Vision
GSSR struggles for a future where human development is based on informed decision making process. Therefore, the journal challenges the status quo of current academic research that suffers from disconnect to actual application by finding solution to the problems confronted by humanity. GSSR intends to become the global leader in introduction of innovations where theories connect with application while maintaining the best features of theoretical and applied aspects.
Objectives & Focus
·Advancement of research in all sectors of Social Sciences
·High quality publications in theoretical and empirical researches
·Networking of academicians, researchers and professionals encourage different genres in creative and research writing
·Enhancement of diversity, multiplicity and variation of the research on society in general
GSSR covers multidisciplinary, inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary issues and problems of social sciences in its classical sense. Therefore, it welcomes articles covering social sciences, humanities and arts. Therefore, it encompasses most of the sub-disciplines of social science (but not limited to) i.e. Government & Politics, Human & Society, Historical & Regional Studies and Education & Mass Studies in general.
GSSR adheres to the highest value in research. It appreciates objectivity in the articles submitted for publication. Instead of assuming the values of objectivity, neutrality, originality, diversity of opinion, contribution to knowledge, strength of argument, avoidance of fallacies, truth and honesty as cliché, GSSR has incorporated these values in the process of selection and review.

Peer Review: GSSR is managing and evaluating all the research articles, papers and cases by “Triple-Blind Peer Review” exclusively. GSSR uses triple-blind review, which means that the reviewer, editor and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, editor and vice versa, throughout the review process.
GSSR has a comprehensive process of evaluation as it follow triple-blind peer review wherein after preliminary assessment (or Pre-Editorial Review) of an article by the Managing and Assistant Managing Editor(s), the same is reviewed by another internal Committee (known as an Editorial Review Committee) comprising the GSSR Editor, Associate Editor(s)and Assistant Editor(s).
