About the IJJS

Published by the Centre of Jaina Studies, SOAS

The Centre of Jaina Studies at SOAS established the peer-reviewed International Journal of Jaina Studies (IJJS) to facilitate academic communication. The main objective of the journal is to publish research papers, monographs, and reviews in the field of Jain Studies in a form that makes them quickly and easily accessible to the international academic community, and to the general public. 

As an open access online publication the IJJS (Online) can be more flexible and creative than a standard print journal. The texts are in pdf-format and can be published and downloaded at virtually no cost. To increase velocity all contributions are issued individually in numerical order. It is intended to re-publish articles and monographs in book form on demand. 

The IJJS is now also available in print from Hindi Granth Karyalay Publishers, Mumbai, India.

The journal draws on the research and the symposia conducted at the Centre of Jaina Studies at the University of London and on the global network of Jaina scholarship.

The opinions expressed in the journal are those of the authors, and do not represent the views of the School of Oriental and African Studies or the Editors, unless otherwise indicated.
