The idea of the International Journal ‘Journal of History and Social Sciences’ (jhss) has been materialized by the untiring efforts of the senior faculty of the department of History, University of Karachi. The idea was originated in January 2010 in the meeting with the senior social scientists and historians who had the honor of working with the legend historian of the twentieth century, Professor Dr. Riaz ul Islam. Professor Islam’s seminal researches on medieval India and consistent work on modern and medieval Central Asia placed him among the top social scientists and historians of the world. He left great tradition of scholastic research at Karachi University.

jhss is a humble attempt to revive that great tradition of quality research in the field of Social Science. We encourage researches cutting across the disciplines, focusing on the issues of past, present and future related to society, economy, politics and development. jhss is not region specific and accept researches on any part of the world. It does not impose any restriction on multidisciplinary researches even includes Science which has tremendous impact on all spheres of the human activity. All researches are subject to go through peer review and double blind review by independent foreign referees before publication. We have panel of referees of national and international repute.
