Sri Lanka Journal of Social Sciences (SLJSS) is published twice a year (in June and December) by the National Science Foundation of Sri Lanka. This journal has been published since 1978. The journal entertains suitable Social Science articles focused on Sri Lanka and/or other South Asian countries. This journal has wide circulation within Sri Lanka and abroad.

SLJSS is currently indexed in SCOPUS and the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).

Researchers are encouraged to contribute articles based on recent research. In addition to research articles prepared according to the given guidelines, the journal welcomes review articles and work-in-progress articles describing ongoing research by scholars in Sri Lanka and abroad. Furthermore, solicited book reviews are also published in the journal. The Editorial Board of the SLJSS seeks to develop this journal as a forum for Social Scientists working on Sri Lanka, including those currently working abroad. Being an official publication of the premier government agency responsible for promoting scientific research in Sri Lanka, the SLJSS also provides an important window for influencing policy and action at various levels.
