• PSSJ Volume 4.1 is now up!

    2021-03-29

    We open this year’s volume 4 with pride and more enthusiasm with the international indexing of the Philippine Social Science Journal in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and Crossref. As an international indexed journal, PSSJ is now joining the caliber journals in the world and guaranteed global visibility, distribution, impact, usage, and reputation by being indexed in these international databases, including Google Scholar. With this good news, it will provide researchers and scientists around the world a convenient platform to search, access, download, and cite published journal articles. We praise and thank God for this blessing! We also extend our appreciation to our generous and supportive collaborators whose expert guidance ensured the quality and timeliness of the journal issues.

    Beginning this year 2021, the National Library of the Philippines has approved our request for the change of publication frequency of the journal from bi-annual to quarterly. PSSJ will now release its online and print issues four times a year (January, April, July, and October). The publication frequency change will address the high demand of refereed/indexed journal publications required for graduate students by the Philippine Commission of Higher Education (CHED Memorandum Order No. 15, series 2019). With the change of frequency, the journal can accommodate a good number of quality journal articles for the whole year's publication.

    As the first quarterly issue, the seventh issue of the journal (Volume 4, Number 1, January-March 2021) presents eleven interesting papers which discussed topics on human rights, philosophy, mental health, well-being, work ethics and job performance, job satisfaction, and work-life balance, parenting style, and factors affecting a purchase decision.
