Journal of Bangladesh Studies ISSN: 1529-0905

The Journal of Bangladesh Studies (JBS) invites academics, experts, and practitioners to submit previously unpublished and original scholarly papers pertaining to Bangladesh for possible publication. JBS is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal registered with the National Serials Data Program, Library of Congress (ISSN No. 1529-0905), USA. JBS is distributed internationally with the goal of reaching a wide range of academic institutions and research centers.

We encourage articles from all disciplines of scholarship pertaining to the study of Bangladesh, the Bangladesh diaspora, or comparative studies in which Bangladesh is included. Our aim is to provide a platform for rigorous intellectual and academic research as well as studies that are practical and relevant to everyday solutions and policymaking. Articles should address Bangladesh's problems and prospects from theoretical, empirical, or analytical perspectives prevalent in academic disciplines. Articles must be grounded in theory, analysis, and referenced work, and be able to address readers beyond the specific disciplines they represent. Manuscripts must be written in APA style, the guidelines for which are provided in the Author Guide (see link below).

JBS considers both short communications and full-length articles. Analysis of recent developments, short reviews of newly published books or research articles, and comments on specific issues should be limited to about 2,000 words. A full-length article is expected to be between 6,000-9,000 words, provide a reasonable review of the literature, and clearly articulate the nature of the problem addressed. JBS also invites critiques of published articles to foster debate and discussion. JBS will seek response from authors whose articles are critiqued.

JBS publishes two issues per year and accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Please submit your manuscript by email to: Dr. Farida C. Khan, Editor in Chief, JBS at jbs@bdiusa.org. When submitting your manuscript and revisions, remove all identifiers and affiliations from the submitted document. Please submit a separate file which is a page with the title, your identity, and affiliation.
