Mission and core values

The South Asianist is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal for early-career researchers in the humanities and social sciences whose work contributes to South Asian studies. The Journal provides a platform for young scholars to present and discuss their work, meet other scholars with similar interests, and spur critical debate on the socio-economic, political, cultural and religious aspects that both define South Asia as a region and divide it into single units of analysis. At the South Asianist, we are committed to integrity, collaboration, constructive feedback and inclusivity, and to develop trusting and lasting relationships with authors and peers. We particularly welcome submissions from South Asian scholars whose work focus on understudied geographical and thematic areas.

Peer-reviewed articles and reviews are complemented by a variety of experimental, more flexible formats.
