Webinar: Introducing the Global Social Challenges Journal

Tuesday 11th May 1300-1400 BST

Bristol University Press, in partnership with the University of Bristol, invite you to a webinar on the Global Social Challenges Journal, a new, interdisciplinary, non-profit, open access journal, with a mission to question, explore and navigate the social and cultural aspects of the complex global challenges that face us all. It will be the first such journal to be based in the social sciences, whilst engaging with research from all fields of study, and the first content will be published in 2022.

The initial call for papers has just launched. Come and learn about what we hope to publish from members of the global editorial team. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
