The hamburg review of social sciences (hrss) is an electronic journal that enhances the opportunity for young as well as established academics to publish their research results in social sciences with comparatively little delay. Submitted articles are reviewed by one established scholar and one young academic working in the respective field and, if accepted, published in the next available issue.
hrss is an interdisciplinary journal and open to a wide variety of topics mainly from sociology and political science. Other disciplines, however, are warmly welcome to join the interdisciplinary approach.
hrss invites papers on topics within in the broad field of social sciences. Papers in either English or German conforming to general standards of academic writing are accepted and should be submitted via e-mail as MSWord-documents. Papers can be submitted anytime. Submitted papers will be reviewed by one of the editors as well as by an anonymous referee. Copyright for contributions remains with the authors, so that you are free to submit and publish them elsewhere.
E-Mail submissions are welcome. Please send your manuscript, preferably as word document, to office [at] hamburg-review.com
