The Journal of Scholarly Papers of Economics and Sociology (E&S) only accepts original and authentic extended papers (approx. 10-15 A4 pages) on a regular basis, which have never been published before or are submitted/under consideration in another means of publication (e.g. another scientific journal, a scientific conference or a working paper, a report, etc.). E&S uses a double blind review process to ensure quality of the contributions. Please, sent your original and authentic papers by e-mail to:

Requirements for research papers
The Papers containing results of the social and economic empirical studies should include information on used methodology and methods in the dedicated chapter of the article.
This information must include the following:
When formatting tables one should indicate more specific information about the provided data. For instance, an author have to specify whether the percent of the respondents, who answered particular question, is calculated as a share from the total number of respondents or a share from the number of respondents, who just answered corresponding question. As the second example, a researcher has to indicate total number of observations together with their share in total. Similar or even more attention has to be paid to the graphical interpretation of the data.
Finally, it is very important to compare obtained results with the data from other studies.
The text may contain tables and figures, which should have separate numbering (one numbering system for tables; another – for figures). They should be placed in the text at the appropriate paragraph (just after its reference) Never use or re-cite tables and figures of original authors, unless you receive a written permission from original authors/publishing house to include such tables and figures in your paper. A copy of such permission should be scanned and e-mailed to the Editorial Office of E&S in a PDF format.
Authors must list all sources of research support relevant to the article. All grant funding agency abbreviations should be completely spelled out. Declaring funding sources acknowledges funders’ contributions, fulfills funding requirements, and promotes greater transparency in the research process.
Examples of Funding Statement:
References must be in Harvard style. References should be clearly cited in the body of the text, e.g. (Smith, 2006) or (Smith, 2006, p.45), if an exact quotation is being used. At the end of the paper the author(s) should present full References in the alphabetical order as follows:
Submissions are accepted all year round with the current waiting time of max. 6 months. When papers are reviewed and selected from scientific events (seminars and conferences), the participation fee already includes the publication charge in E&S.
Finally, papers, as with all other aspects of the Journal, can be addressed to the Editorial Office:
