The Editorial Team of the Journal of History and Social Sciences (JHSS), in order to avoid any kind of confusion, clearly declares that the previous issues of the Journal dated from 2014 to 2018 have been published retrospectively on a later date for the purpose of filling the gap that had appeared in the publication of those issues due to the financial crisis faced by the Journal during the abovementioned years. For this purpose, several calls for papers were circulated in 2018 that clearly mentioned that the forthcoming issues would be backdated and meant for shedding the backlog.
