RIMCIS is focused on the analysis of societies, on the study of social problems, and on guidelines needed to overcome them. Thus, it is contributing to a qualitative and social transformation. This will help to the societies' development with a rigorous scientific basis, internationally proved.</p> <p>With this approach, the journal also aims to reflect the outcomes of the major global research in social sciences, four-monthly publishing articles related to researches, relevant theoretical contributions, monographs' reviews, which have contributed to the creation of knowledge related to the broad field of social sciences studies. Jointly and in a multidisciplinary way, RIMCIS pretends to achieve critical and scientific debate based on evidences that contribute to the theoretical and empirical knowledge.</p> <p>RIMCIS will publish articles in Spanish, Catalan, English, French and German in order to be addressed to a national and international audience, social science field researchers, and professionals, who want to base their scientific work on scientific evidence.</p> <p>With a free access and digital broadcasting, the journal aspires to include a multidisciplinary view of social science. This fact is not covered by other editorials of scientific publications.</p> <p><strong>Peer Review Policy: </strong>All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous double-blind peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by two anonymous referees.</p> <p>Until October 5th 2013, Hipatia Press scientific journals were published under Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial-NoDerivative License (CC BY NC ND).

The study aimed to analyse the degree of consensus on the differential influence on the radicalisation process of various factors (attitudinal, contextual, historical and protective), primarily included in the VERA-2, related to multiple socio-demographic categories and the processes of radicalisation in opinion and action. Applying a Delphi analysis methodology, the results point to the difficulty of reaching a consensus on the differential influence of the factors that affect the radicalisation of young migrants according to the categories examined. This consensus is appropriate concerning the distinction between radicalisation in action and radicalisation in opinion, showing the multiplicity of influential factors, especially in the case of radicalisation in opinion. The importance of protective, contextual, and attitudinal factors is evident for this type of radicalisation, while for radicalisation in action, a high consensus is reached on historical and contextual factors. Interventions aimed at the attitudinal sphere, rejection and prevention of violence, active policies of social inclusion, and spaces for intercultural dialogue and community participation are proposed as lines of work to prevent the radicalisation of young immigrants.</p> Almudena Macías León, Francisco Cosano Rivas, Auxiliadora Durán Durán Copyright (c) 2022 International and Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Sciences Sat, 30 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Violence Against Men in Heterosexual Couples in the Latin American Context: A Review of the Main Findings and Methodological Aspects <p>Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a phenomenon that has been analyzed from various perspectives, among them is intimate partner violence against men. An object of study that has been given little social and academic relevance in various regions. This study aims to identify the methodological aspects and most relevant findings of IPV against men in the studies carried out in the last two decades in Latin America. Following the guidelines of the PRISMA Model, a systematic review was carried out through a search in this subject area in six databases. The total of the initial references was 426, which were subjected to analysis through a purification process where, finally, 16 articles were obtained that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The main results highlight that, recently, the scientific community in Latin America has focused mainly on male victims and made contributions that allow for questioning of the social, academic, and scientific minimization of this phenomenon. The results are discussed highlighting that social stigma is what continues to hinder the recognition of male victims as a legitimate and valid object of research.</p> Mayte Guzmán-Pimentel, José Luis Rojas-Solís Copyright (c) 2022 International and Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Sciences Sat, 30 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Scientific Narratives in the Study of Student Time Management: A Critical Review <p>Effective time management plays a major role in the performance society, and not only psychological, but also socio-cultural and pedagogical factors are involved in students' effective organization of time. Mainstream scientific discourse has argued that effective learning depends to a large extent on students' organizational skills. However, researchers have paid scant attention to the socio-cultural and pedagogical aspects that are involved in the development of these skills. The purpose of this article is to critically analyze the dominant scientific narratives on the study of the effective use of time by students. To this end, this study was designed based on a critical review of the literature from 1990 to 2021. The Web of Science and Scopus databases were consulted. A total of 51 papers met the inclusion criteria. The results suggest that learning to organize and optimize academic time is important for social coordination, well-being and achievement of students' academic and life goals. However, the acceleration of instructional time has a major emotional impact on the school population. The conclusion is the need to investigate the subjective and collective experiences of students on the emotional impact that speed, work overload and multitasking have on their academic and personal lives.</p> Clara Romero-Pérez, Encarnación Sánchez-Lissen Copyright (c) 2022 International and Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Sciences Sat, 30 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Religious Believers in Spain by Social Classes: Results over 268,261 Individuals: 2013 to 2022 <p>In March 2022, 60% of Spaniards identify themselves as religious (believers). This percentage is the lowest since data is available. In 2000, 80%, while in 2019 was 70%. Almost all people who define themselves as Believers indicate that they are Catholics (97%). The variability of religious identification is established by gender, age, educational attainment, and ideology. 102 data files from the CIS (Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas, Spain) have been merged, obtaining a sample size of 340,532 interviewees between January 2013 and February 2022. This file also includes additional information on occupation, professional situation, and the economic activity of the respondents. From this information, a social class model has been generated (sample size of 268,261 respondents) following to Erikson, Goldthorpe &amp; Portocarero (EGP) classification. The results show that religious identification varies significantly by social class: the higher the social class, the lower the religious identification.</p> Leopoldo Cabrera, Felipe Rosa-González Copyright (c) 2022 International and Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Sciences Sat, 30 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200
