Pakistan Journal of Women's Studies: Alam-e-Niswan is published twice a year by Pakistan Association for Women's Studies (PAWS). PAWS, its friends and supporters believed that to encourage analytic responses to feminist issues and to make connections between the newly established Women's Studies discipline at the University of Karachi and Women's Studies world-wide we must have a scholarly journal. Our deliberations and discussions convinced us that this journal should act as a bridge between the activists and the academics. The first issue of Pakistan Journal of Women’s Studies: Alam-e-Niswan appeared in 1994.
The Palestine-Israel Journal is a non-profit organization, founded in 1994 by Ziad AbuZayyad and Victor Cygielman, two prominent Palestinian and Israeli journalists, and was established concurrently with the first phases of the Oslo peace process to encourage dialogue between civil societies on both sides and broaden the base of support for the peace process. It was obvious from the start that, alongside the institutional efforts of Palestinians and Israelis, channels of communication must be opened for academics and other intellectuals, opinion and policy makers, grassroots organizations and activists to voice their views and take part in the public debate for a democratic and just solution to the conflict.
Postcolonial Studies is the journal of the Institute of Postcolonial Studies, Melbourne.

Reviews in Cultural Theory is a journal of book reviews that responds to new developments in the theorization of culture. Published online bi-weekly and collected into issues three times a year, Reviews in Cultural Theory seeks to provide a forum to foreground both new work in this field and the emergent community of scholars who share an interest in the complex and changing problematic of culture today.
Focusing on the wide distribution of short and timely reviews and review essays, the journal aims to remain responsive to the dynamism and pace of this field. The journal’s first three issues chart the contemporary shape of cultural theory as it touches on Visual Culture, Gender Studies, Geography, Queer Theory, Marxism, Anthropology, Critical Race Theory, Postcolonial Studies, Cultural History, and Sound Studies, among other fields and subjects, established and emerging. We welcome suggestions of new work for review.

Rupkatha Journal features peer-reviewed articles and book reviews on interdisciplinary cross-currents in the humanities. This is the first Indian Open Access Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies addressing the need for novel approaches to literature and arts. The Journal derives its name from 'rup' (form) and 'katha' (words), which, when combined, mean 'myth' in Bengali. The journal gets its inspiration from the etymology and goes by the principle that anything which has a form, visual or mental, can come under focus.
We have selected Interdisciplinary Studies because we think it "is the need of the hour". "The fundamental idea for interdisciplinarity derives" as our Chief Editor Explains, "from an evolutionary necessity; namely the need to confront and interpret complex systems. To put it simply this means that [a] the entities that we investigate within the environment of contemporary science are perceived to be more like organic or inter-related complexes. The entity that is studied [say like one from logistics, or psychiatry, or dietary cuisine, for examples] can no longer be analyzed in terms of an object of 'biology' or 'chemistry', but as a contending hierarchy of components which could be studied under the rubric of multiple or variable branches of knowledge."
We have firm conviction in Open Access Philosophy and strongly support the Open Access Initiatives. In conformity with this, the content of publications will be primarily guided by the open nature of knowledge, and the journal is free to access from any corner of the world.
SAMAJ is an academic and peer-reviewed on-line journal devoted to social science studies on South Asia. It publishes scholarly articles written by professional academics as well as doctoral students. Its scope is multidisciplinary, covering studies in history, geography, anthropology, sociology, political science, and economics.
In general, scholarly articles on South Asia have tended to be difficult to access due to the fact that they are only available through subscription or in libraries. In contrast, SAMAJ seeks to ‘democratize’ research-based studies on South Asia by giving such studies a greater visibility through free and worldwide access.
