About Us

The International Institute of Social and Economic Sciences is a scholarly institution.


Our mission is to promote research and disseminate knowledge. The main goal is to facilitate communication and open discussion among scholars, researchers and practitioners who are interested in social and economic sciences. To accomplish our mission, we organize conferences and publish international journals, thus giving people opportunities to exchange ideas and present the results of their scientific research. The IISES’ conferences enable participants to network with other colleagues and develop research collaborations.

Open access policy

In order to provide the academic community immediate access to the latest results of scientific research, we publish open access academic journals and conference proceedings. The articles are thus freely accessible to a wide academic audience through web search engines, such as Google Scholar and otherswhich index full texts of scholarly literature.
