Journal of South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (JSAMES), employs two-stage review process. At first step, (one of) the editor(s) of the journal reviews the article in order to decide if it is worthy of peer-review.
If the article can pass this first review, it will then be sent to two anonymous peer-reviewers. After about 12 to 14 weeks, the authors will receive either an email from the journal relating their decision which will be accompanied by the reviewers' reports or comments.
Articles should be written in clear, jargon-free English with adequate but not excessive documentation. (JSAMES) aims to be accessible to a variety of readers: scholars from diverse disciplines, policy-makers, and journalists, among others.
JSAMES will own copyright to all published works and has the right of first publication, both in print and online, unless other arrangements are made with the Editors in advance.
Manuscripts should be submitted as electronic files to email@example.com. Authors are encouraged to email the Editors at the same address should they have additional questions about the submission process.
