Advances in Social & Cultural Studies (ASCS) provides a platform to researchers to publish their original research work that contributes to existing body of knowledge in a variety of fields within social and cultural studies. ASCS accepts original articles, research reports, and discussion papers that are theoretically refined and empirically complex and welcomes contributions on the use of research methods in respective fields of social and cultural studies. As a policy of ASCS, all submissions should embody a global perspective and be of relevance for an international audience to appeal to scholars interested in cross-cultural and comparative research in social and cultural studies.
