The National Research Journal of Social Science (NRJSS) is a principal outlet for scholarly articles on Indian societies published by the National Press Associates. The Journal provides a unique forum for theo-retical debates and empirical analyses that move away from narrow disciplinary focus. It is committed to comparative research and articles that speak to cases beyond the traditional concerns of area and single-country studies. This Journal strongly encourages transdisciplinary analysis of contemporary and historical social change in India & Asia by offering a meeting space for international scholars across the social sci-ences, including anthropology, cultural studies, economics, geography, history, political science, psycholo-gy, and sociology. The Journal also welcomes humanities-oriented articles that speak to pertinent social issues. The Journal publishes internationally peer-reviewed research articles, special thematic issues and shorter symposiums.
