AESI Journals Policy/Guidelines


The Indian Journal of English Studies, an annual refereed journal is devoted to the cause of promoting original and unpublished articles on Indian writing in English. The major focus, though being on Indian English literature and language, the journal also accepts innovative, original, unpublished thought- provoking, critical and scholarly articles on British, American, and Third World literatures comprising diasporic writings, women’s writing, creativity, culture, popular literature, translation studies, creative writing and many more. While papers presented at AESI (Association for English Studies of India) annual conferences are given due consideration, the journal also welcomes outstanding articles recommended by our celebrated referees.
