Supporting SDG1: The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice
Starting today, we will be running a countdown to the New Year by highlighting one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals each day with research on the platform. It is therefore with great timing that we announce a new collection on the platform from Bristol University Press for their Journal of Poverty and Social Justice (JPSJ)! The work of this Journal coincides perfectly with the first United Nations Sustainable Development Goal: End poverty in all its forms everywhere, which we are highlighting today.
The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice provides an internationally unique forum for leading research on the themes of poverty and social justice. Focusing on poverty and social exclusion, the journal explores links with social security (including pensions and tax credits), employment, area regeneration, housing, health, education and criminal justice, as well as issues of ethnicity, gender, disability, and other social inequalities as they relate to social justice. By featuring the Journal on ScienceOpen, JPSJ will benefit from the contextual environment of over 74 million records and an international research network base, helping increase the dissemination of its peer-reviewed research on poverty and social justice issues.

The Bristol University Press COVID-19 Collection
Bristol University Press strives to publish world-class scholarship that advances theory, knowledge and learning within and beyond academia. This exciting university press questions the status quo, promotes social justice and reframes ideas in a global context. We have also recently worked with BUP to create a COVID-19 Collection which explores some of the social impacts of the pandemic, including research into the role of COVID-19 in shifting the boundaries of political power, growing levels of poverty, increased social isolation and the demands placed on the third sector. See below for the most shared articles in BUP’s COVID-19 Collection:
- Making evidence and policy in public health emergencies: lessons from COVID-19 for adaptive evidence-making and intervention
- Disinformation superspreaders: the weaponisation of COVID-19 fake news in the Persian Gulf and beyond
