Central Asia Almanac in Kyrgyz: CAP’s Contribution to Developing Central Asia’s Scholarship in National Languages
The George Washington University’s Central Asia Program (CAP) at the Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (IERES) calls for academic articles in Kazakh and Kyrgyz for its forthcoming ejournal, Central Asia Almanac. The purpose of this ejournal is to contribute to the creation and the institutionalization of a Kazakh- and Kyrgyz-speaking academic space, promote local scholarship, and foster a dialogue among different academic communities.
Articles will be considered by CAP’s editorial staff and reviewed by independent scholars using a double blind peer-review system. Articles must belong to social sciences and the humanities: history (XIX-XX centuries); and theoretical and empirical research in the field of political science, social sciences, anthropology and economy. Accepted articles will be released on CAP’s website in the first issue of the ejournal at the end of 2021.
The length of the article should be between 6,000-9,000 words and follow the Harvard citation style. Please send your submissions to email@example.com. Deadline: April 30, 2021.
