About the Journal
Studies in Indian Politics is a double-blind peer-reviewed bi-annual journal. The journal publishes research writings that seek to explain different aspects of Indian politics. It adopts a multi-method approach and publishes articles based on primary data in the qualitative and quantitative traditions, archival research, interpretation of texts and documents, and secondary data.
The Journal covers a wide variety of sub-fields in politics, such as political ideas and thought in India, political institutions and processes, Indian democracy, and politics from a comparative perspective particularly with reference to the global South and South Asia, India in the world affairs, and public policies. While such a scope makes it accessible to a large number of readers, keeping India at the center of the focus makes it target-specific.
