Online ISSN: 2465-4418

The Journal of Population and Social Studies (JPSS) is a distinguished, open-access, peer-reviewed journal published by the Institute for Population and Social Research, Mahidol University. Renowned for its scholarly dissemination, JPSS has been instrumental in advancing research in its respective fields. Since transitioning to an online-only format in 2014, JPSS has consistently delivered cutting-edge research, with an impressive volume of approximately 48 articles annually.

JPSS actively encourages submissions from a diverse range of disciplines, including demography, population studies, and related fields such as health sciences, sociology, anthropology, population economics, population geography, human ecology, political science, statistics, and methodological issues. The breadth of contributions spans a wide array of topics, encompassing population and family dynamics, population aging, sexuality, gender, reproductive health, population-environment interactions, population health, migration, urbanization, labor, factors influencing and resulting from population changes, as well as the intricate social and behavioral dimensions of population.

At the heart of our mission is the establishment of a dynamic platform that fosters knowledge exchange among researchers, academics, professionals, practitioners, and graduate students worldwide. We actively seek empirical and theoretical research papers, case studies, literature reviews, and book reviews that stimulate valuable insights and advancements in the field. Recognizing the significance of these contributions, we strive to engage the academic community, policy-makers, and practitioners in meaningful dialogue, nurturing a deeper understanding of population-related issues and their implications.
