International journal on gender-based violence released
Jammu: The Foundation for Academia, Innovation & Thought (FAITH) in collaboration with Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester, NY, USA, released the Volume I, Issue I of their Journal – South Asian Journal of Law, Policy, and Social Research, on Monday on SSRN (Social Science Research Network), a repository devoted to the rapid dissemination of scholarly research in the social sciences and humanities.
A statement issued by the organization said that this much-awaited release comes after the Journal’s parent Organisation had decided to postpone its initial release due to the global COVID-19 outbreak which was scheduled to be held in March, 2020.
“The South Asian Journal of Law, Policy, and Social Research (SAJLPSR) is a peer-reviewed, open access legal and social science journal that publishes original and previously unpublished research and aims to create an interdisciplinary research platform to foster prospective solutions to legal and social issues in South Asian countries. The journal also attempts to bring research beyond library shelves by inclusion of art. The Volume I of the Journal focuses on the theme of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) which is inclusive of physical, sexual, and psychological harm on the basis of gender, in the South Asian region and features research perspectives to GBV in the region along with several exceptional photographs from photographers around South Asia that give an artistic perspective to GBV. Volume I Issue II is due to be released in November this year, reads the statement.
“The Journal is the brainchild of the Foundation for Academia, Innovation & Thought, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to finding solutions to problems that plague South Asia. The organisation aims to harness the power of interdisciplinary and international scholarship to resolve conflict and right injustices and believes in making research accessible which will lead to disabling the spread of disinformation. It envisions a world in which collaborative research addresses social problems, where scholarship informs government policies, and in which all individuals are free to live safe and dignified lives,” it said.
“Volume I, Issue I of SAJLPSR has been released online and can be accessed for free on the organization’s official website https://faithinchange.org,” it added.
