Free expression: Delhi University to bring out three journals soon
The other two journals on natural sciences and humanities and social sciences, however, will be research-based and they will be published once a year. The articles will be selected through a peer-review process.
“An editorial board comprising experts in a particular subject, even those from outside the university, will go through the papers. They will write their comments and the articles might be sent back to the author for clarification. If the panel is satisfied with the article, it will be selected,” Khare said.
University officials have decided to keep the journal online and not to have print editions available.
“Most journals, these days, are available online. One normally has to pay a subscription fees to access the online journals but Delhi University journals will be freely accessible. The online format also brings down the cost significantly,” Khare said.
While papers for the creative writing journal need to be submitted by the end of February, the deadline for the other two journals is the end of May.
“Papers from outside the university have been invited. We are hoping to make the journals available by October this year,” he added.
