The Department of Economics at North South University (NSU) with the help of NSU Young Economists’ Forum (YEF) hosted a research workshop titled “Conversation with an Editor of SSCI Journals”.

The event, which is part of the SBE (School of Business and Economics) Research Workshop Series, was held at the Syndicate Hall of North South University.

The speaker was Professor Niaz Asadullah, a Visiting Professor of Economics at the University of Reading, UK, and a Professorial Fellow in the Department of Economics at North South University.

He is recognized as one of the top 3% of economists in Asia according to the IDEAS RePEc authors ranking and the recipient of the top 1% global peer reviewer award from Elsevier.


During the workshop, he shared his extensive expertise in the areas of economics of education, gender, and labor as well as development studies.

An Oxford-trained economist, Professor Asadullah provided invaluable insights into the intricacies of publishing in Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) journals, based on his own experience of serving as editor and advisor to a dozen SSCI journals.

The workshop was designed to raise awareness on the importance and challenges of publishing in SSCI-accredited journals as well as the perils of publishing in non-indexed predatory outlets.
