A message from HIMALAYA Editors: CALL FOR ARTICLES AND SPECIAL THEMED ISSUES

A message from HIMALAYA Editors: CALL FOR ARTICLES AND SPECIAL THEMED ISSUES

In conjunction with the recent announcement that Mona Bhan (DePauw University) and David Citrin (University of Washington) will be the next editors of HIMALAYA, with their term beginning in 2018, we would like to take this opportunity to suggest that ANHS consider submitting their own scholarship to the journal and encouraging their students to do the same. In addition to the submission of individual articles, we highly encourage ANHS members and other scholars of the region to consider submitting proposals for special themed issues, perhaps emerging from recent panels at HSC IV in Austin (2016), planned for HSC V in Boulder (2017), or other conferences and workshops.

Our double-blind peer review process is rigorous and our open access platform means that the reach of work published in the journal is broad and inclusive. However, ultimately, the success of the journal depends on the receipt of robust scholarship from a diversity of disciplines and perspectives. In addition to the last two issues produced under our editorship (Vol. 37, Issues 1 and 2, due out in June and December 2017), we would like to hand over to the new editors a solid lineup of new submissions. The average time from submission to review process and, if an article is accepted, through to publication remains 12-18 months – a competitive timeline in our world of academic publishing. Please consider contributing to this process.

With best wishes,

Mark Turin and Sienna Craig, Co-Editors, HIMALAYA
