Studies In Nepali History And Society

Studies in Nepali History and Society (SINHAS) is a peer-reviewed semi-annual publication of Martin Chautari (Kathmandu DAO Registration No. 289/059/060). SINHAS was founded in 1996 and is published by Mandala Book Point, Kathmandu, Nepal, in June and December. SINHAS provides an interdisciplinary forum for original research. The journal aims to further understanding of cultural politics and social conditions in Nepal through a commitment to historical analysis, attention to Nepali scholarship, and a willingness to explore new terrains. Detailed studies from any discipline are invited. All papers must have a substantive focus on Nepal, but comparative work is also welcome.  

In addition to research-based articles, the journal invites submissions in the following areas:

  1. Critical reflection on the state of Nepal Studies. Articles may be oriented by topic, period, region or discipline;

  2. Commentary: Opinion pieces on current social issues, usually by individuals with first-hand experience of the topic under discussion;

  3. Single- and two-book reviews and multi-volume book review essays; and

  4. Notes from the archive: Original extracts from public and private archives with additional notes.

Proposals for contributions in any of these categories should be addressed to the editors. Articles and other materials for SINHAS must be submitted electronically as a Word file attached to an e-mail. Notes for contributors and the style guide are provided here.
