About the Special Issue

The Special Issue produced by the Journal of Namibian Studies - ISSN online 2197-5523 aims to be available to an academic audience around the world regarding scholarly work and original research of high standards in English. JNS is transdisciplinary and is the only academic journal that focuses on humanities and social sciences which is linked to history, politics and culture 

The journal intends to be international in scope and papers accurately promoting universal concepts, theories, and points of view, less known in world literature, are especially welcome. This also applies to manuscripts authored by scientists from outside the core of the systems of world's socio-humanities, which give chances for direct discussion with no mediation of the core.

The journal publishes theoretical and methodological, as well as firmly theoretically-based empirical papers that contribute to a cross-disciplinary debate. A philosophy of the journal is that good theories and strong methodologies are essential for successful practice. Critical texts, including articles reviews, are welcome. Both quantitative and qualitative texts are accepted for publication, based on either positivist or humanist methodology if they meet high standards of the scholarly peer-review.
