It publishes peer-reviewed, original research and reviews articles in an interactive, open-access format. The journal is published at no cost to the authors.

Aims and Scope

IJIS is a Nigerian journal for the Nigerian people. IJIS aims to publish well-researched manuscripts from Nigerian authors across communication, sociology and psychology. Content from the journal could be valuable to international scholars interested in understanding available literature on issues that affect Nigeria, with particular reference to communication, sociology and psychology. Specifically, in communication, we are interested in papers focusing on media, journalism and communication broadly. In psychology, our interest is in mental health, psychological wellness, and behaviour and mental process. In sociology, our interest is in rural studies, family welfare, poverty, and the impact of monetary policies on income, youth studies, agriculture, and politics.  All these are strictly limited to Nigeria and its development. At IJIS, we aim to lead the scholarly debate for a better Nigeria.
