Information To Contributors

Khazar Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences focuses on the results of original research projects in various fields of History, Politics, International Relations, Education, Culture, History of Thought, Language and Literature, Economics and Law. The goal of this journal is to consolidate efforts of all academics who work in Azerbaijan and/or the regions of the Caucasus, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East as well as in general Social Studies, Arts & Humanities.

The journal is published in English. To be published in the Khazar Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences a paper must be substantial and original. The Editorial Board does not accept articles published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Informational material, such as notifications about conferences, books, jubilees, etc. may also be published under the Information heading. Articles and other material published in the Khazar Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences represent the opinions of the author(s) and should not be considered to reflect the opinions of the Editorial Board. All published research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening, anonymous refereeing by independent expert referees, and consequent revision by article authors when required.


Articles must be clearly presented and have purpose for the readers. The Editorial Board solicits and encourages publication of worthy papers with a length not exceeding 25 published pages (approximately 10,000 words). Those of a length exceeding 25 pages, but containing very important results, can be published by the consent of the Editorial Board. If an article contains material reproduced from other sources, the necessary written permission from the author(s) and publisher must accompany the paper.

Articles may be submitted by e-mail. Please submit your manuscript to the following addresses:,

The first page should include the title of the article, the names and primary affiliations of the author(s), an abstract (not exceeding one page), and keywords. All figures, photographs, tables, or drawings should be numbered. References must be in MLA format. Entries in the reference list should be put in alphabetical order or in order of citation. Footnotes in the text should be avoided if possible.

After a plagiarism check and an initial screening for acceptability, submitted articles will be distributed for double-blind peer review. Two reviewers write their comments on each article along with recommendations to publish the article, to publish with revisions, or to decline the article for publication. The editorial staff forwards these anonymous reviews to the article author and gives the author further instructions about making revisions, if necessary. Revised texts are re-sent for peer review. Authors should note that the peer review process can take one to two months or longer to complete.
