Paper Prints Policy

The Indus Journal of Social Sciences does not offer paper prints of its published articles. All articles are published in electronic format only. The journal's policy is to make its research outputs as widely available as possible, and to reduce the environmental impact of publishing.

If you would like to obtain a paper copy of an article, you can contact the author directly. The author may be able to provide you with a copy of their article, or they may be able to direct you to a library or other institution that has a copy of the journal.

Here are the reasons why the Indus Journal of Social Sciences does not offer paper prints:

  • To make research outputs more widely available. Electronic publishing makes it easier for researchers to share their work with other researchers around the world. This can help to accelerate the pace of research and to make new knowledge more accessible to policymakers and other stakeholders.
  • To reduce the environmental impact of publishing. The production of paper prints requires a significant amount of energy and resources. Electronic publishing is a more sustainable way to publish research outputs.
  • To save costs. The cost of producing and distributing paper prints is high. Electronic publishing can help to reduce these costs.
