The European Journal of
Social Science Research
European integration, globalization and new nationalism,
migration and digitalization pose fundamental challenges for policy,
politics, citizenship, culture and democracy.
Innovation: The European Journal of Social Science Research
provides a unique forum for discussing these processes.
It welcomes articles on all aspects of European developments that
contribute to the improvement of social science
knowledge and to the setting of a policy-focused
European research agenda.
Now more than ever there is a need for challenging, thoughtful, transformative social science to address the crucial demands our societies are facing – energy transitions, climate crises, pandemic recovery, migration and social justice – we are on the cusp of a new world and the social sciences must lead the way. Innovation can point us in the right direction.
It is great to work with the editors of Innovation. They are very committed, genuinely concerned for the quality of work and easy to communicate with. They are always looking for the opportunities to further improve the quality of the journal and its services.
I can say only one thing about Innovation having followed the development, and growth, of the journal over the last twenty years: the journal takes risks where others play is safe by publishing social science research that is interesting, exciting and pushes the boundaries of our understanding.
Why I support Innovation and its editing? It is simply because I like the profile that it has developed over the years and the way the team works.
