Call For Papers


The Editorial Board of the South Asian Journal of Law, Policy, and Social Research (SAJLPSR), in cooperation with the Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester, invites submissions by research scholars, academics, and concerned professionals for a 2nd issue of the first special edition of the journal centered around Gender-based Violence (GBV) in countries under the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC).

In response to our first Call for Papers we received more abstracts on important topics in the field of GBV in South Asia than we could publish in one issue. In keeping with our mission to disseminate this information widely, we are publishing a second issue with a target launch date of November 14, 2020, which is Children’s Day in India. The peer reviewed journal will be published with a DOI and ISSN hosted on the SSRN, an open access eLibrary, as well as in a limited print run. Authors will retain ownership of their materials.

A recent report by the United Nations, Global Study on Homicide: Gender-related killing of women and girls, calls governments to strengthen evidence-based policies and criminal justice responses in an effort to prevent and end violence against women and gender-related killings. This is clearly a global and transnational problem. However, according to the report, the region with the largest number of all women killed worldwide by intimate partners or family members in 2017 was in Asia with 20,000 deaths. Findings such as these indicate the prevalence of gender-based violence in the region and express the need for discussions to raise awareness and to provide potential remedies to end gender-based violence.

We are interested in diverse commentary that focuses on the theme of GBV, which includes, but is not limited to, physical, sexual, and psychological harm on the basis of gender, in the South Asian region. Works such as case commentaries, research papers, book reviews, and other articles which highlight the chosen legal and social problem in South Asian society are welcome. Research articles and relevant forms of academic discussion can explore GBV through fields such as policy, law, and various social structures, highlighting the issue through the lens of academics from those who work in or study the different SAARC regional countries.

• Submission Types:
o Research articles (4000 - 7000 words)
o Case commentaries, opinion pieces, or book reviews (2000 - 4000 words)
o Other relevant academic works will also be considered (limit of 7000 words)
• Include a separate cover page with the author’s name, designation, an abstract of 200-300 words, and a short biographical note of 50 - 100 words. The target launch date for the new journal is November 14, 2020
• Submit abstracts of 200 - 300 words by December 6, 2019 with notification of invitation to submit by January 10, 2020.
• Submit full manuscripts in double-spaced, size 12, Times New Roman font in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). Please submit all works by March 6, 2020. Publication acceptance notifications will be sent by May 1, 2020 with any revisions due July 3, 2020. Citations are APA format with in-text citations.
• All submissions are subject to double-blind peer review before being published.
• Direct all submissions and any questions to

The South Asian Journal of Law, Policy, and Social Research (SAJLPSR) is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal that aims to create an interdisciplinary research platform that will foster prospective solutions to legal and social issues in South Asian countries. The journal publishes original works of research bi-annually, with each issue focusing on a central theme that promotes legal and social science research. Future special edition issues will follow focusing on public health issues such as child abuse, environmental law, in an effort to help policy be created from evidence-based social science bringing together interdisciplinary researchers and policymakers through colloquia and a shared spaces to engage in robust dialogue.
