Journal of STEPS for Humanities and Social Sciences is an international, transdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, which serves as a platform for addressing and discussing theoretical and practical issues and solutions in humanities and social sciences. Subject areas include, but not limited to, Arts and Humanities, Business and Management, Education, and Social and Behavioural Sciences.

STEPS publishes 4 issues of rigorous and original contributions, including Original Studies, Reviews, Rapid Communications, and Letter to the Editor. Contributions could be submitted in the Arabic or English language (American or British, but not a mixture of these). The submitted contributions must help to enhance the current understanding of the addressed problem.

The contribution must be unpublished before and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

STEPS maintains a standard single-blind peer-review process. The single-blind process means that the reviewer's identity is not known to the authors.

STEPS is published by EScience Press as an Open Access journal; therefore, it does not charge readers to access and download the published articles.

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
