About the Journal

Ife Social Sciences Review is a Faculty of Social Sciences journal, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. It is an international and interdisciplinary forum for the dissemination of scholarly papers in the broad areas of social and management sciences. We publish original research articles (both empirical and theoretical), reviews, position papers and commentaries on social and management issues, to inform current research, policy and practice in all areas of common interest to social scientists, management practitioners, and policymakers. The journal publishes material relevant to any aspect of social and management sciences from a wide range of social science disciplines (anthropology, economics, epidemiology, demography, geography, management, political science, policy, psychology, and sociology), and materials relevant to the social sciences from any of the professions concerned with physical, built environment, and management, health policy and organization. We encourage material which is of general interest to an international readership. The journal will be published two times a year- June and December.

The journal publishes the following types of contributions: 

1)    Peer-reviewed original research articles and critical or analytical reviews in any area of social science and management research. These papers may be up to 6,000 words including abstract, tables, and references as well as the main text. Papers below this limit are preferred.
