We are delighted to announce the launch of Zealos*: Studies in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts & Design, an annual peer-reviewed and open-access journal published by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Nicosia (UNIC).
* “Zealos” is the transliteration of the Greek word “ζήλος”, meaning zeal
Aims & Scope:
The journal’s aim is to showcase empirical, theoretical and practice-based research work by scholars and practitioners in the humanities, social sciences, arts and design. Zealos intends to leave its mark on these fields through the publication of research papers, essays and creative work, conference and book reviews. By taking a multi-disciplinary perspective, we hope to contribute to both local and international literature and showcase some of the work conducted by academics and practitioners. The journal particularly welcomes submissions on issues related to Cyprus. Special Issues focusing on a specific theme acting as a connecting point between the various disciplines are also planned. Papers in English and Greek will be accepted. All manuscripts will be double-blind peer-reviewed by two experts in the area of the submission.
The journal applies the creative common license CC-BY-NC-ND (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/) to all published articles. Under this license, authors agree that others can copy and distribute the article for free as long as appropriate credit is given and the article is not modified and not used for commercial purposes.
