Social change is the alteration in the social order of a society. Changes in social institutions, nature, social relations or social behaviours are included in social change. Social change refers to the social progress or sociocultural evolution. Social change may be driven by cultural, religious, economic, scientific or technological forces. Two types of sources are there for social change. One is random or unique factors such as climate, weather, or the presence of specific groups of people. Another one is systematic factors. Suppose, successful development has general requirements, like stable and flexible government, free and available resources, and a diverse social organization of society. So, on the whole, social change is usually a combination of systematic factors along with some random or unique factors.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
