South Asia Journal for Culture is an annual refereed journal based in the region. "The idea of the journal is to enhance access of South Asian writers to a journal that is regionally managed and published and is responsive to intellectual needs, interests and concerns covered by the thematic focus of ‘culture’. The term is broadly defined to encompass contributions from more conventional disciplinary parameters such as sociology, social anthropology, history, archeology, art history and cultural studies to the more specific domains of ‘art’ such as theatre, visual arts, architecture, film, music, dance and literature." - introduction extracted from Colombo Institute's website
