Science INSIGHTS® is an open-access journal. Science INSIGHTS® focuses on general science that includes all the aspects of the field related to science. Science INSIGHTS® has a three-stage review system on which the manuscript will be reviewed first by the Executive Editor-in-Chief. Then it will be forwarded to the in-house professional editors for screening, and finally, it will be sent out for peer review. During the second stage, the manuscript may be encountered rejection or even be accepted for publication without further peer review, depending on the critical checking by our in-house editors. The Journal's peer-review process is generally two weeks, so any submissions to Science INSIGHTS® can get the final decision within one month. The primary criteria for considering submissions are whether the manuscript is written in English, whether the idea is presented concisely, and whether it is readable to non-professionals. Particular standards exist for different types of papers.

Dear Colleagues,

The Social Sciences study micro, meso and/or macrosocial processes that shape societal life. Nowadays, the relevance of the contribution of Social Sciences to the improvement of living conditions is recognized.

In this context, the Social Sciences teaching-learning process, at different levels of education, has gained increased importance. Presently, there are relevant developments such as e-learning, inquiry-participatory, or flipped classroom, among others, which can potentially foster the effectiveness and efficiency of Social Sciences learning if we can break the overly conservative expectations of many teachers and students about how a successful class is supposed to be performed.

Therefore, and considering the sharing of information essential, we invite contributions of various types such as research articles, reviews, but also opinion articles and reasoned essays that focus on the teaching-learning of the Social Sciences in any context and that is a pertinent contribution to the progress of this topic.
