Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing

Brill publishers has launched two new titles in its successful suite of review journals, Brill Research Perspectives, in the subject area of the Social Sciences. The first issues are planned for 2020 and will become available online and in print.

Brill Research Perspectives provides researchers with the opportunity to give an account of the most recent scholarship and to define and direct the agenda for future research. They combine the verification of peer review, the high usage of reference works, and the pedagogy of textbooks. Designed for research communities in the Humanities, International Law, and the Social Sciences, these journals distil the vast body of literature in a field into a more digestible format while linking to the primary sources.

In recent decades, Sociocybernetics has developed as a distinct discipline that aims to deal with complex social issues using multidisciplinary approaches. Sociocybernetics is concerned with applying first and second order cybernetics, the systems sciences, and complexity science in the Social Sciences. Brill Research Perspectives in Sociocybernetics and Complexity disseminates advances in Sociocybernetics and consolidate existing research efforts, including theory and applications.

Taking a global perspective, Brill Research Perspectives in Global Youth address specific issues related to the impact of expanding interdependency of national societies on youth conditions. At a time when youth has undergone tremendous changes in most of the countries in the world (Western, Eastern, Southern and Northern), this publication provides academics, practitioners and policy makers worldwide with exhaustive analyses and syntheses regarding youth in a global context as well as the renewed approaches needed to assess these shifts.
