What is the Sikh Research Journal

The Sikh Research Journal (SRJ) is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal in the field of Sikh and Punjabi Studies. Contributions can be in all areas of Sikh and Punjabi Studies, including (but not limited to) art, architecture, culture, heritage preservation, history, language, literature and religion. Submissions from younger scholars are especially welcome. The SRJ encourages submissions that are accessible to members of the Sikh community outside academia, and to academics who are non-specialists in the field. The Sikh Foundation continues to provide the web platform for the SRJ, but an editorial collective of academics will manage the review process.

Sikh Research Journal considers only original, previously unpublished research/scholarship/commentary.  Manuscripts submitted to SRJ for review should not be concurrently under consideration with another journal.  All manuscripts submitted to SRJ will initially be screened by the SRJ editorial collective, and those deemed worthy of potential publication will generally be sent for external, usually double-blind, peer-review.  Authors can expect an editorial decision within about sixty days of submission.

Those interested in submitting articles to be published in the SRJ can click below for details.
