Scope of the Journal

Society faces many significant challenges nowadays: pollution, poverty, pain, terrorism,

crime, greenhouse effect, war, disease, starvation, road accidents, inflation/deflation,

unemployment, pornography, great suffering, ignorance, pesticide poisoning, and

falsehood, to just name a few. It could be argued that scientists have spent too much time

on many not-so-urgent issues and put too little effort into these challenges at the present

time. Some researchers have veered from the main stream of our society.

IJSSS eliminates the following "six barriers":

• the barrier between social and natural sciences

• the barrier between theory and applications

• the barrier between hard decision models and soft ones

• the barrier between different disciplines in the business world

• the barrier between government and industry

• the barrier between the ivory tower and real society

When barriers exist, it is less likely that the various areas involved will serve one another

properly. There is an urgent need to integrate all segments of society into one single

productive system.

What the experts say

about IJSSS

The importance of interdisciplinary research is

now widely recognized and accepted in the

research and scientific community.

Researchers from different disciplines who

develop new ways of conceptualizing and

addressing significant research problems that

cross disciplinary boundaries are in need of

an appropriate outlet for publishing their

findings. IJSSS is a new and exciting journal

providing a necessary window that removes

barriers and facilitates the interdisciplinary

dialogue between leading researchers, policymakers

and technical experts, in order to

arrive at viable solutions for the issues

confronting our global community.

Dr. Ardeshir Anjomani, Professor of City

and Regional Planning, School of Urban

and Public Affairs, The University of Texas

at Arlington, USA

I am delighted to serve on the editorial board
