International Journal of Social Research and Innovation (IJSRI) is a multi-disciplinary research journal published by Villa College. The journal is currently in its 4th volume, and has in the past published a number of high quality research papers in diverse areas such as business, education, health, public policy, law, language, arts and culture. All papers in the journal are published after a rigorous peer-review process and stringent editorial scrutiny.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the editorial board of IJSRI is currently seeking high quality research papers related to the general theme of the current pandemic situation. As such, we wish to invite academics and researchers to submit their papers addressing the impact of COVID-19 on the Maldivian society - from various perspectives such as public health, education, business, economy, livelihood, employment, technology, law, public policy and governance. Authors are encouraged to focus their papers on identifying current research and thinking related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to provide impactful and creative solutions essential for a speedy recovery and normalisation.
