Call for Papers – India China Working Paper Series

Call for papers – India China Working Paper Series


The India China Institute welcomes papers from any academic discipline related to its thematic concerns for its India China Working Paper Series. These concerns include but are not confined to India-China comparisons, India-China relations, and the historical and contemporary effects of India and China together in the wider world.  The working paper series is multi-disciplinary in character.

We encourage submissions of unpublished papers reflecting relevant recent work by academic and non-academic researchers anywhere in the world. The aim of the series is to provide a single location for rapid dissemination of research to a global community of scholars and practitioners, with the aim of disseminating ideas, encouraging constructive comment and fostering debate.

Although research topics may be historical or contemporary, and belong to any discipline, as long as they are related to the broad thematic concerns mentioned above, the Institute has a special interest in work on shared contemporary problems in China, India and other major countries (including the United States).   The focal topics of the Institute’s fellowship program in recent years, which include urbanization and globalization, prosperity and inequality, and social innovation for sustainable environments, reflect this interest.

Review and Publication

Papers will be reviewed by one member of our Editorial Advisory Board and may be returned to authors for revision. After suitable revision, papers will be finally accepted or rejected. All papers that pass through the editing process will be published on the India China Working Paper Series website.  Authors will be free to publish subsequent versions of a paper elsewhere. However, the Institute may approach authors with proposals to include working papers in edited volumes or other publications which it may initiate. It may also occasionally hold on-site or on-line discussions or conferences on themes related to submitted working papers. The Institute will make efforts to bring widespread attention to the working paper series.
