About the Journal

Ianna Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies (IJIS) is an open-access publication from the Department of Mass Communication, University of Nigeria, Nsukka. It publishes peer-reviewed, original research and reviews articles in an interactive, open-access format.  Previously, the Journal was published every October, but beginning in 2023, the Journal is published every June. 


Ianna Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies will only publish 12-20 articles in a year and possibly an editorial. If a special issue is planned, the total number of articles that will be published cannot exceed 12. Also, beginning June 2023, there will be an article processing charge of $500 for accepted manuscripts. Authors who do not receive funding will be given a discount. Hence such authors without funding will only pay $314. This is to ensure the smooth running of the journal and pay for long-term archiving. There is no submission fee.

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, digital communication technologies, and communication broadly. In psychology, our interest is in mental health, psychological wellness, and behaviour and mental processes. In sociology, our interest is in rural studies, family welfare, poverty, medical sociology, healthcare, monetary policies’ impact 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.
