Disseminating knowledge to comprehensive, high-quality sex education


The IJSSE (e-ISSN:…, p-ISSN:…) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed, fully open-access journal providing an advanced platform and opportunities for sexuality education-related research outputs. The eitorial board welcomes empirical, conceptual, academic, and theoretical articles critically analyzed and interpreted in all its holistic approach to Sexuality education: Sexuality comprehensive education, challenges of learners or students within the school context. The IJSSE approaches manuscripts related to the operational guidance for Comprehensive sexuality education. For example, these are based on all individuals' values and human rights as a core component, not an add-on. Thorough and scientifically accurate information about human rights, gender norms, and power in relationships (including consent and decision-making, sexual coercion, intimate-partner and gender-based violence, and sexual diversity); the body, puberty, and reproduction; relationships, communication, and decision-making; and sexual health (including STIs/HIV and AIDS, unintended pregnancy, condoms, and contraception, and how to access health and other support services). It focuses on gender (gender norms and gender equality) as a stand-alone topic and is also infused across other comprehensive sexuality education topics; moreover, such gender content dovetails with efforts to keep girls in school and to promote an egalitarian learning environment. It deals with a safe and healthy learning environment. It consists of effective participatory teaching approaches that help learners personalize information and strengthen their communication, decision-making, and critical thinking skills. It is a youth advocacy and civic engagement in program design, empowering learners beyond the curriculum as agents in their own lives and community leaders. It focuses on cultural appropriateness, tailored as needed for distinct subpopulations. The scholarly articles must be prepared, treated, and interpreted with the same academic rigor expected of academic research.


The IJSSE aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scholars, publishing professionals, librarians, and others to communicate original research that addresses current issues informed by the best practices. Scholarly publishing has only recently begun to exploit the full potential of networked digital technologies, which affects the broader process of research communication, including public access to and engagement with research. Influential trends towards responsible research and innovation, the globalization of research, the emergence and inclusion of new or previously excluded stakeholders, and the advent of open science are reshaping scholarly publishing's scope and nature. The social, legal, and ethical dimensions of publications continue to co-evolve with these changes. Publications aim to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scholars, publishing professionals, librarians, and others to communicate original empirical and theoretical research on these and related topics to address current issues and inform best practices. The IJSSE publishes research, reviews, scholarly writings, and reports concerning the inclusion of learners (students) with special learning needs in mainstream classrooms. The IJSSE is focused on inclusion issues in all educational endeavours, such as research, administrative issues, teaching and learning in classrooms, and inclusion of students at higher institutions. The IJSSE defines Sexuality education within the broad context of the Salamanca statement guidelines. Special Education has within its heritage the perspectives of advocating for persons with exceptionalities and embracing individual differences. Therefore, the IJSSE aims to support critical conversations concerning inclusion, multicultural issues, democratic ethics, and democratic schools. Scholars’ voices are encouraged to engage in these conversations by writing scholarly articles, reviews, research, and reports. Similarly, academic scholars must submit their quality pre-service teachers' work dealing with these issues. Articles representative of a variety of disciplinary bases are more than welcome. The focus of the IJSSE is not limited to or slanted toward any specific method of inquiry or analysis, neither quantitative, qualitative, empirical, nor rational.
