The Journal of Alternative Perspectives in the Social Sciences and the Journal of Asia Pacific Studies
        Both Journals are published by the International Academy of Social Sciences and its affiliated organizations. The goal of the journal is to give voice to independent scholars and practitioners from around the world. JAPSS favors a multidisciplinary approach to social problems and strives to provide an open forum for the deliberation of ideas by the international community of scholars and practitioners. As an open license publication, JAPSS is distributed for free electronically and for a nominal fee in printed form through the print on demand system.
           Articles for publication are chosen by double blind review in the case of research articles, by invitation for the opinion/reflection section, and by consensus of the editorial board in the case of book reviews and critiques. Thus, JAPSS is both a peer-reviewed publication and an opinion journal. By providing two methods for publication, the journal can take advantage of the objectivity provided by peer-review and the flexibility and insights of position papers.
         The International Academy of Social Sciences is a learned society of scholars and practitioners from all over the world. Currently the Honorary President is H.E. Alfredo Palacio, 44th President of the Republic of Ecuador. Academicians are leaders in their fields and their ranks include government officials, professors, and prominent intellectuals. 
We are currently calling for papers for volume 7, issue 2 to be published May 2020.
Advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, young practitioners, and young scholars are strongly encouraged to submit their papers. Qualitative and critical research will be prioritized.
