Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Social science researchers have paid more attention to LGBTQ+ communities and populations in recent years, and this has resulted in the publication of many journal articles, books, and studies. Nevertheless, some underdeveloped theories, methods, and applications continue to persist due to cultural and institutional barriers to understanding LGBTQ+ groups. This Special Issue focuses on foundational research on LGBTQ+ communities and populations that can provide an initial understanding of those groups, with the goal of generating interest. Potential contributors are welcome to contact Dr. Elbert P. Almazan (email@example.com) or the Editorial Office regarding their submission ideas.
