About the Journal


Aim and Objective 

JHSMS-IDEA aims to publish original, innovative, and quality research in the disciplines of humanities studies, social sciences, management sciences, and allied fields with a focus on Asia. JHSMS-IDEA provides a publication platform following an eminent standard of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research to national and international academics, researchers, scholars, and scientists worldwide.

Scope and Thematic Focus

The primary scope of JHSMS-IDEA includes the disciplines of humanities studies, social sciences, and management sciences. The extended scope of JHSMS-IDEA covers allied fields of business sciences and behavioural sciences. JHSMS-IDEA believes that the inclusion of multiple fields and disciplines helps pool the knowledge from two or more fields of study to handle better-suited problems by finding solutions established on the new understandings.

Area/Regional Focus

The area/region-wise focus of JHSMS-IDEA is Asia. However, the comparative studies of other countries/continents with a direct or indirect focus on Asia are also considered for publication. 

Publication Frequency

The frequency/schedule of publication of JHSMS-IDEA is biannual/semi-annual (i.e. two issues per volume; the first issue is from January-June and the second from July-December of each calendar year). After the editorial review and peer-review process are completed, the accepted article is sent to the production team for editing and layouts. When finalised, a PDF of the galley is uploaded on the JHSMS-IDEA website as a published version. All the published articles are gathered together into the journal's issue on a bi-annual basis.
