Publishing opportunities

Accepted abstracts/papers will be published in the 2nd ISSH-2021 proceedings volume which has the ISBN publication Index – 978-0-9945391-6-8 of ISBN Agency of Australia and will be submitted for indexing with the Clarivate ISI Web of Science conference proceedings citation index (the ISSH-2019 Proceedings were indexed in the CPCI database).

After the conference, those papers which meet academic requirements from those abstracted and presented at ISSH-2021, will then be selected and invited by the editorial team for extension and rewriting for possible publication in journals such as: Inter-Asia Cultural Studies (ISI), Review of Radical Political Economics (ISI), Social Identities (Scopus), or Thesis Eleven (Scopus), for blind peer review and publication.
