Virginia Social Science Journal

The Virginia Social Science Journal (ISSN 0507-1305) is a refereed journal published by the Virginia Social Science Association. It seeks to encourage research in the social sciences. Publication is not confined to Virginia-related research nor is it confined to scholars working in Virginia; the Journal is interested in all manuscripts of interest and concern to social scientists. The Journal routinely publishes papers in the areas of anthropology, business, economics, education, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology.

Manuscripts should be submitted via the form on this page to the editor and associate editors. Manuscripts should be no longer than 20 double-spaced pages. The manuscript format adopted by the journal is a close approximation of the American Psychological Association (APA) as outlined in the fifth edition of the Publication Manual (2001). An abstract of no more than 120 words must accompany the manuscript. Figures such as graphs, drawings, and diagrams should be professional in appearance and submitted in camera-ready form. Authors of manuscripts accepted for publication must supply final copies of their work on electronic media, preferably in Microsoft Word format. By submitting a work to the VSSJ, the authors agree to not submit the work to another journal while it is under review. Furthermore, the VSSJ does not consider manuscripts that have been published elsewhere under copyright.
