[Purposes] Under the background of building world-class scientific journals, social science journals also need to actively explore internationalization development strategies suitable for their own characteristics, so as to highlight their own value and significance in the trend of academic internationalization. [Methods] The comparative analysis method and case analysis method were used to study the development status of social science journals in China. [Findings] The development of scientific journals in China is closely related to that of social science journals. Social science journals also need to learn from scientific journals humbly, and learn from the successful experience of scientific journals in terms of journal management, technology application,and talent cultivation, so as to promote the further development of social science journals. [Conclusions] In the process of building world-class science journals, social science journals should take active actions to improve the influence of social science journals in academic circles and make great contributions to social science research in China.
