Contemporary Social Science

The Journal of the Academy,Contemporary Social Science, is taking shape in its new incarnation. Whilst individual papers of relevance across the social sciences are still very welcome the emphasis is now on special issues that deal with cross-disciplinary topics of general significance.

The first issue, published in  February dealing with ‘Post-conflict Societies’ was well received.

The current issue examining ‘Challenge, Change or Crisis in Global Higher Education?’ explores the timely questions of whether recent and planned developments in higher education really do offer the social and intellectual progress that their protagonists claim.  Sadly, research shows that many recent changes to higher education have put the clock back rather than moving things forward.

Rather presciently, the Autumn issue focuses on Crowds in the 21st Century.

Anyone wishing to prepare a special issue should contact the editor, Professor David Canter AcSS, by or visit theJournal’s website where there are guidelines on preparing a special issue.
