Dear Olatunde,
I guess you wonder whether this very journal is a predatory one or not. It seems to me that it is OK.
Saying that, I would like to urge you to do the checking by yourself – see "classical" Jeffrey Beall's list of predatory journals:
Please observe that updated list is at the bottom!
For updated version see:
Apart of googling journal's and editor's names you could rely on doing a quick search on and see how frequent are articles from this very journal.

One has to be careful this days not to publish in predatory journals. They are numerous and lure academics to publish in them.

The journal “International Journal of Research and Innovation in Social Science” is published by “Research and Scientific Innovation Society” and is as indicated by Raphael Kanyire Seidu a potential predatory publisher included in the Beall’s list:
This by itself is already a red flag for being predatory however not (always) enough. However, there are additional red flags:
-Papers have no DOI and no submission/acceptance info
-Publication fee is unrealistically low (USD 20)
-Besides meaningless indexing ( is no official indexing agency) no serious indexing
-The emblem is remarkably similar to that of Elsevier, looks like an attempt to mislead
-Papers I checked are not available in Google Scholar so even this claim is false
This publisher proves that the evolution in predatory publishing moves on. The website (and the papers) looks remarkably professional so unaware of the phenomenon predatory publishing this publisher (and its journals) will make more victims. However, looking at the above-mentioned facts/observations I think that the conclusion is predatory so better to avoid.
Best regards.
PS. Michal Bron Jr potential predatory journals can, as you said, be found in the so-called stand-alone list (original and updated list) but more often the publisher behind it is listed in the publishers list (and automatically all journals published by this publisher are suspect). So check both and
