American Journal of Indic Studies (AJIS) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the American Academy of Indic Studies (AAIS) (


AJIS invites academic papers on all aspects of Indic studies broadly defined for publication in Volume 1 Number 1 and its subsequent issues. AJIS publishes papers that call attention to the meanings and applications of Indic categories, which have typically been under-represented in the academic study of Indic civilization. AJIS invites papers that analyze specific theoretical and methodological issues within Indic studies across academic disciplines. AJIS also welcomes papers that place Indic categories and explanatory models in conversation with western theoretical and methodological models in order to deepen and expand scholarly knowledge of Indic civilization. Interactions and relationships of western and non-western studies on contemporary and classical Indic civilization are also considered for publication.


Papers on all aspects of Indic Studies, and their interdisciplinary studies in all of the disciplines of Humanities, Social Sciences, Education, Public Affairs, and other Interdisciplinary areas including (but not limited to) Anthropology, Archaeology, Arts and Art History, Diaspora Studies, Ethical Thought, Ecological & Environmental Studies, Film Studies, Gender Studies, History & Culture, Human Geography, India-America relations, Indic Elements & Hindu-Buddhist relations in Asia, Languages & Linguistics, Media Studies, Philosophy, Politics & Public Administration, Religious Studies, Social Work, and Sociology will be considered for publication.
