AMCAP | Association of Media and Communication Academic Professionals



AMCAP Journal of Emerging Social Scientists (AMCAP-JESS) is an online double-blind peer-reviewed journal. It aims to publish original research papers written by undergraduate, graduate students, PhD scholars and early career researchers. AMCAP-JESS strives to create a space for emerging scholars from Pakistan and around the world to collaborate with international community. Broadly, this journal is expected to serve as a bridge for emerging scholars’ professional networking within and outside Pakistan.

AMCAP-JESS aims to promote emerging scholarship in a multidisciplinary perspective to create knowledge from ground up. It provides an opportunity to integrate scholarship from various disciplines of social sciences to foster new ideas, approaches, and methodologies in creating knowledge.

Writing for publication is one of the most significant means of academic enculturation for graduate students. AMCAP-JESS aims to prepare early career researchers and scholars to the process and potential challenges of publication.
