In order to understand the recent development and emerging trends in social science research, the RIHSS promotes the Leading Research Topic Investigating Project to collect and investigate the cutting-edge thinking and ideas among the academic community. Through this project, the funded work groups will conduct an in-depth literature review and a comprehensive survey of ongoing research issues and topics in each discipline. The research group will make the results available in the final report and make recommendations for scholars and researchers to plan their future studies.
