Between 2004 and 2005 Lund University published the Swedish journal Chakra: tidskrift för indiska religioner. The journal published peer-reviewed articles and book reviews on religions on the Indian subcontinent. The founding editors of Chakra were Associate Professor Kristina Myrvold and Dr. Katarina Plank. The four issues of the journal are now republished on our website. This republication marks the first step in creating a Nordic journal of South Asian Studies.
The first issue of the new journal will be published in 2018. It will still bear the name Chakra but broaden the scope to all aspects of South Asian studies. The journal will be published once a year and authors may submit manuscripts in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English. The journal will be peer-reviewed (double blind peer-review), following the guidelines set up by Norsk Senter for Forskningsdata (NSD).
Deadline: May 1
