The South Asian diaspora shaped by dispersions of people goods ideas and beliefs that flowed from and through the Indian Subcontinent is currently one of the worlds largest diasporas. India Pakistan Bangladesh Nepal Sri Lanka Bhutan and the Maldives all anchor a sense of home for people who have moved outside the region over the centuries. These territories evoke emotional social political economic cultural and literary affiliations as well which find expression in multiple ways. The diaspora is also marked by tensions and struggles over meanings both among the diasporics and with people in the countries where the diasporics now inhabit. In South Asian Diaspora we aim to explore some of the issues that the South Asian diaspora presents for the contemporary world. The journal welcomes original theoretical and empirical articles from diverse disciplines on various themes including but not limited to the following the historical contexts of South Asian emigration sociocultural religious economic and political issues communication and linkages between diasporas and homelands research into the new cultural forms including media and popular culture microlevel ethnographic studies and comparative studies of creative writings.

Impact Factor

There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
