Call for Papers


Vol. XI, No. 2, 2014

BRAC University Journal (BUJ) is inviting academics, experts, and practitioners in various fields to send scholarly papers pertaining to cultivation of knowledge for possible publication of Vol. XI, No. 2, 2014 by March 31, 2016.

Articles are encouraged from fields including anthropology, agriculture, architecture, basic sciences, economics, education, engineering, international relations, management, political science, psychology, sociology, and related areas. We seek this diversity of perspective because comprehensive academic development of the University depends on a broad foundation of knowledge. The Journal publishes original research papers, short communications, book review, and review papers / articles after being properly reviewed by the experts in the respective fields. Broadly, the articles should address original thought and ideas from a theoretical or analytical perspective prevalent in academic disciplines or case studies of theoretical significance. Authors are encouraged to prescribe actions and measures that are meaningful, practicable, and amenable to the sector (s) or issues they address. Articles must also be comprehensible to a wide audience. Thus, while technical merit of an article is important, it is even more important that authors are able to communicate lucidly with a variety of readers who may not have the technical sophistication to understand the esoteric methodology of a particular field. In addition, while the articles must be grounded in theory, analysis, and referenced work, they must also communicate outside the specific disciplines of the authors without being perceived as popular, journalistic writing.

Both short communications and full-length articles may be submitted. Analysis of recent developments, short reviews of newly published books or research articles, and expert comments on specific issues are treated as short communications, which should be limited to about 2,000 words. A full-length article, in about 12 one and half-spaced and typed pages, should provide a reasonable review of the literature and clearly articulate the nature of the problem or issue it addresses as its focus. BUJ also invites critiques of published articles to foster debate and discussion. Critiques may be published on the basis of space availability (which is often constrained by budget restrictions) and the advice of the editorial board. Critiques must be about two BUJ pages and must be written in a positive demeanor to foster healthy discussion. BUJ will attempt to obtain responses from the authors whose articles are critiqued.

Last date of submission: March 31, 2016.
