Short Description

Academicus – International Scientific Journal (Academicus ISJ) is an international scientific journal published in English. Academicus ISJ is a non-profit and open access publication that is published semi-annually and is double-blind peer reviewed. Its print ISSN is 2079-3715 and its electronic ISSN is 2309-1088.
Academicus ISJ is led by an international Editorial Board consisting of outstanding members of the academic and scientific community throughout Europe and the world. Their review and critique will ensure that the works selected for publication meet the highest international scientific and publishing standards. The journal brings together the scientific research of academics within a wide arena of discussion in a way that few other publications of this kind are actually doing.
Conceived as a scientific journal which gives considerable space to research in the social sciences and humanities, and with a direct impact in the social, economic, political, legal, and communication fields, this journal collects works and scientific research developed from the perspective and disciplinary structuring of the social sciences, indexed in the 1XX.XX and 3XX.XX fields of the UDC ( Universal Decimal Classification).
The works published in its issues have a direct impact on the improvement of socio-economic indicators of the region and other areas, by expanding the definition of what is regional, starting from the Western Balkans, the Mediterranean countries, Central and Eastern Europe and beyond, with a global view.
The volumes of the Academicus ISJ can be found in hard copy at the Public Library of Vlore City, as well as at the Albanian National Public Library in Tirana, the British Library in London, UK, the ZBW - German National Library, as well as in the most important digital libraries worldwide in open access and by subscription.
In order to preserve the intellectual legacy of its digital content in open access within a long-term storage, all works published in Academicus ISJ have been archived in Portico Repository and with DSpace at an Institutional Repository. To measure the academic impact of its articles according article citations and readings, Academicus ISJ has inserted PlumX, issued and developed by Plum Analytics.

The Founder and Editor in Chief of Academicus ISJ is Prof. Dr. Arta Musaraj.

The Peer Review process

Academicus ISJ operates with a double-blind peer-review standard, where the reviewer selection is done by an automated patented system as follows:
Based on the UDC code declared by the author, the Editorial Secretariat inserts the paper into one of the corresponding folders of each field, without names and other sensitive data of the author. By using their personal login (user, pass), reviewers enter in the directories of their scientific field where they may download the paper and express their availability to review the paper by checking the corresponding box.
After two selections (availability check), the work is not available for review by other reviewers, and after 3 weeks they must stipulate their decision and communicate it to us with their detailed review, according our standard described at the journal’s Regulations directory.
In case there is no convergence of reviews for a proposal, the Editorial Secretariat passes it to a third reviewer following the same procedure.
Within 4 to 6 weeks, the Editorial Secretariat communicates to the author the results of the review process of his/her proposal.
