How to publish in this journal


Pakistan Journal of Commerce and Social Sciences (PJCSS) is tri-annual open access journal published by Johar Education Society (a registered non profit institution) in collaboration with Higher Education Commission (HEC), Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training, Government of Pakistan. It is devoted to the study of commerce, business and economics. It attempts to publish quality research focusing on multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary empirical research related to full range of commerce and cognate disciplines. Since the foundation of PJCSS in 2008, the journal had been accepting submissions in all discipline of social sciences. But, now, after the current guidelines of Higher Education Commission (the regulatory body), scope of PJCSS has been reduced to commerce, business and economics only. Further quantitative research with strong data analysis would only be processed for peer review. Join the conversation about this journal
