EASAS and SAMAJ – the South Asia Multidisciplinary Academic Journal – work together in publishing a SAMAJ-EASAS special issue once a year. Special issues emerge from panels held at the European Conferences on South Asian Studies and undergo a rigorous peer-review process. SAMAJ receives institutional support from the Centre d'Études de l'Inde et de l'Asie du Sud (CEIAS).


Publish in SAMAJ (South Asia Multidisciplinary Journal) - Call for Proposals 2018

To all Conveners of Panels at the 25th ECSAS, Paris, July 2018


The call for proposals for the seventh and eighth SAMAJ-EASAS special issues is now
open. For papers from your panel to be considered for publication in a special issue in
2019 or 2020, please send a 500-word concept note describing your panel, as well as an
abstract for each of the likely papers, to the EASAS-SAMAJ editorial group at
office@easas.eu by 30 September 2018, specifying if you are able to submit the full text
of all articles by the end of 2018 for the seventh issue (2019), or else you want to be
scheduled for the eighth issue (2020) and you will submit all articles by June 2019.
Multidisciplinary in scope, SAMAJ is an open-access, on-line, peer-reviewed, international
journal that combines the approach of established disciplines – history, geography,
anthropology, sociology, political science, and economics – and recent fields of
investigation (e.g. media, environment, and gender studies). Through in-depth thematic
and comparative studies, SAMAJ seeks to bring out new perspectives on the diverse
trajectories of South Asian societies in colonial and post-colonial contexts. Beyond the
societies of South Asia in situ, a significant focus of this journal is also on diasporas, both
in ‘home-’ and ‘host-’ societies. To know more about SAMAJ, see
https://journals.openedition.org/samaj/142. Papers should be between 6,000 and 8,000
words, and special issues of the journal usually include 6-8 papers. For authors’
guidelines, see https://journals.openedition.org/samaj/157#tocto1n3.
