The Portuguese Journal of Social Science (PJSS) is an English-language peer-reviewed journal published, with support from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, under the coordination of the Social Science Research Unit (Unidade de Investigação em Ciências Sociais - UNICS) at Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL), a state-funded university institute located in Lisbon and the largest in Portugal doing social science research.

The journal is dedicated to introducing an international readership to the best work currently being produced by Portuguese scholarship in the social sciences. Until the publication of PJSS, this work was only available in Portuguese or was scattered among a variety of different non-Portuguese-language journals. Much important work of general interest to the social science community, as well as of particular interest to specialists in Latin America and Southern Europe, has tended until now to be neglected by readers who do not readily read Portuguese or who do not have access to Portuguese language journals.

While preference will be given to original work, the PJSS will consider exceptional pieces that have previously been published in languages other than English. All articles will be submitted to two referees, nominated by the Editorial Committee, for peer review. The principal academic disciplines to be covered by the PJSS include anthropology, economics, history, social psychology, sociology, political science and social geography.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
