About us

The Presidency Historical Review (ISSN: 2454- 5058) is a students’ peer-reviewed academic journal of the Department of History, Presidency University, Kolkata, India. It addresses research interests in historical studies with an inter-disciplinary and inter-regional approach, while catering especially to the research interests of undergraduate, postgraduate and research scholars. Although the journal focuses on South Asian studies, it welcomes academic writings from other areas of research as well. It aims to be a forum of scholarly discussion, while encouraging the work of new scholars. All abstracts and articles are independently and confidentially refereed by a students’ board, and a distinguished, multi-disciplinary Board of Editors.
