Journal for Human Advancement

The Journal for Human Advancement: Independent Projects for Progress and Human Rights is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published by The Goodis Center for Research and Reform, Inc. Due to the variety of content in the Journal, we publish issues digitally, both online and on CD. The inaugural issue (Volume 1, Issue 1) was published in February 2010 and the second issue (Volume 2, Issue 1) was published in February 2012. Our International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) is 2152-2766. This Journal is published in order to encourage and develop a general public familiarity with human rights and to foster a productive critical understanding of human rights ideology and practice. Articles include basic introductions to the material, case studies, and theoretical discussions, as well as scientific and artistic works that deal with any themes in human rights.

This Journal is intended to work towards an understanding for the origins, development, direction, applications, conflicts and controversies in human rights, as well as to bring attention to both the relation between human rights and policy and the implementation of policies into practice. Moreover, the Journal for Human Advancement seeks to bring together various disciplines and genres to promote a multifaceted and interdisciplinary framework for evaluating, advancing and protecting human rights.
