A New Journal: Review of Agrarian Studies

Review of Agrarian Studies is the peer-reviewed journal of the Foundation for Agrarian Studies (www.agrarianstudies.org), a charitable trust based in India and established in 2003. The major objectives of the Foundation are to facilitate and sponsor multi-disciplinary theoretical and empirical enquiry in the field of agrarian studies in India and elsewhere in less-developed countries. The Foundation does so in association with a wide section of people interested in the agrarian question, including persons associated with academic institutions, social and political activists, members of mass organizations working in the countryside, and other professionals and scholars.

Review of Agrarian Studies will appear in electronic and printed form. The online version is now live at www.ras.org.in or www.reviewofagrarianstudies.org. The online edition is free to all registered users. Do register now!

The journal invites articles on agrarian studies – on the forces and relations of production in agriculture and in rural areas, on living standards, and on different aspects of social formations in the countryside. The Review will carry theoretical and empirical articles on social, economic, historical, political and scientific and technological aspects of agriculture and rural societies. The Review also accepts photographic, audio and video material.

The Review will publish online first and aggregate online content into a print edition every six months. Rich media content (photographic, audio and video material, hyperlinks and interactivity) will be made available only online.

The print edition of the Review will be published jointly by the Foundation for Agrarian Studies and Tulika Books, one of India’s most important publishers of books in the social sciences. The HTML content of the Review is rendered online, and the print edition typeset, by TNQ Books and Journals, one of India’s leading providers of publishing services to scientific, technical and medical publishers worldwide.
