About the Journal
The Social Impact of Research (SIR) is an Open Access journal that has as its main objective the publication of top research about the social impact of the research in all sciences.
The social impact of sciences has been extraordinary throughout human history; from the reduction of child mortality or the understanding of the Universe to the current citizenship awareness on climate change or clarifying the successful social actions. It would not have been possible without scientists dedicating their lives to the progress of knowledge.
Periodically we face incomprehensible situations like budget cuttings in scientific research, people questioning its utility, or people following more the useless comments of junk TV personalities that the evidences provided by scientists. This scientific journal will publish both researches from all fields that have achieved remarkable social impact, and researches about the social impact of sciences.
SIR publishes articles in English. It aims to be indexed and abstracted as soon as possible in International Social Sciences databases such as the Science Citation Index, SCOPUS, ERIH PLUS or DOAJ.
Peer Review Policy. All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous double-blind peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by two anonymous referees.
