New Explorations in South Asia Research, or NESAR (nēsaṟ being a Kannada word for “sun”) is an open-access journal publishing original research in South Asian Studies, with a focus on the intellectual and expressive traditions of South India.
NESAR is an online-only publication. NESAR will never charge its authors open-access fees or publication fees.
NESAR was started in 2020 by Andrew Ollett, Shubha Shanthamurthy, and Naresh Keerthi, with a founding advisory board of Diwakar Acharya, Richard Eaton, Leslie Orr, David Shulman, and Eva Wilden.
The motivation for NESAR was the relative scarcity of high-quality open-access journal in the field of South Indian Studies and South Asian Studies more widely. We felt the need for a journal that (a) was open-access and free (for both contributors and readers); (b) was rigorously peer-reviewed and realized high standards of scholarship; (c) was intended primarily for South Asian Studies; (d) held itself to high standards of design and publication.
You can contact the journal at email@example.com.
