Journal on strike

January 24, 2020: The France-based editorial team of SAMAJ is currently on strike in protest against the reforms proposed by the French government for retirement pensions (réforme des retraites) and academic funding (LPPR). These two projects contribute to the destruction of public service and its mechanisms of solidarity by systematically introducing market logics and individual competition. Within the framework of this strike, we are suspending our editorial work until further notice in order to devote ourselves fully to political work, by participating in the mobilization in France and in the collective initiatives of the “journals on strike”, but also by contributing to the reflection on the ongoing demonstrations in India against the dicriminatory policies of the Indian state.


What is SAMAJ?

The South Asia Multidisciplinary Academic Journal (SAMAJ) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal devoted to research in the social sciences and humanities on South Asia. It specializes in the publication of comparative thematic issues as well as individual research articles, review essays, and book reviews. Committed to disseminating rigorous scientific research to the widest possible audience, SAMAJ is fully and freely accessible on line. SAMAJ receives institutional support from the Centre d’Etudes de l’Inde et de l’Asie du Sud (CEIAS) and has a partnership with the European Association for South Asian Studies (EASAS) since 2011.
