AIMS AND SCOPE

 

International Journal of Gandhi Studies is committed to publishing excellent scholarship on well-established topics in Gandhi Studies, to fostering new work in neglected areas, and to stimulating alternative perspectives on a wide range of issues. The Journal supports critical inquiry, hermeneutical interpretive proposals, and historical investigation into all aspects of Gandhi Studies.

 

While committed to publishing articles that will advance scholarship in any discipline relevant to Gandhi Studies, the Journal is especially interested in areas of research that have cross-disciplinary relevance or new implications for this emerging field of scholarly interest. Submissions of a comparative or theoretical nature will receive serious and respectful consideration.

 

Each submission to the Journal will receive double-blind review. In the double-blind review, both the authors and the reviewers are anonymous.
