political economy

political science

in the form of academic study of prospects and limits for transforming modern societies, including philosophy of law, e-governance, global governance and regulation, post-Socialist modernization, the protection of cultural heritage and minority rights, anarchism and freedom, etc.;


including academic articles and applied case study materials in all areas of sociology and social policy, but predominantly with a comparative perspective for approaches and methodologies that are not in mainstream to promote dialogue and exchange in looking for new theoretical means of conceiving the life-world.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


The editors invite the submission of articles, book reviews, discussions, responses, and notices from professional scientists. It is particularly interested in publishing contributions by new authors who pursue their academic development. One of the objectives of SH is the provision of a suitable platform for the discussion in all areas of human sciences beyond the limits of Western-centrism, with emphasis on problems of post-Socialist European states and ideas marginal to mainstream.



SH is published in electronic formats. Currently, SH has four electronic issues per year. The journal does not have article processing charges nor article submission charges. SH aspires to become a venue to connect post-Socialist human sciences to the world and thus the editors strongly encourage submissions in English language. The journal also aims to contribute to the understanding of society and state through the study of relevant institutions, using concepts belonging to the disciplines of philosophy, political science, legal science, economics, and sociology. The crossing of different disciplinary points of view will enable us to gain a deeper insight into the various aspects of the observed phenomena. Our main objective is to study changes and their underlying mechanisms in modern societies (e.g. in post-Soviet republics), through the analysis of the institutions that remain most hidden from the public eye.


The aim of the thematic sections is to provide a viewpoint on a given issue and suggest new approaches or avenues of research. The preparation of a thematic section is entrusted to two members of the editorial board, who jointly formulate the angle of approach to this theme. There are 5 to 10 articles per section. Calls for contributions will be also published on the journals website and in newsletters sent through internet.


The publisher of Studia Humana is the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow (Poland).

The journal does not have article processing charges (APCs) nor article submission charges.
