Indian Social Science Review (ISSR) Journal
 
The Council's journal, the Indian Social Science Review, provides a vital forum/ platform to the social science community to deliberate upon important issues engaging the social sciences. Three volumes running into six issues have been published since its launch in January 1999 while the fourth volume is currently in the press.
 
The journal has taken shape under Professor T. N. Madan as Editor-in-Chief, in collaboration with Sage Publications. Its Editorial Board has met ten times till date. It consists of eminent social scientists belonging to different disciplines: Professors Amiya K. Bagchi (Economics and Economic History), Sabyasachi Bhattacharya (History), Ashish Bose (Sociology), Neera Chandhoke (Political Science), Suma Chitnis (Sociology and Education), Indira Jai Prakash (Psychology), Kuldeep Mathur (Political Science), Pulin Nayak (Economics), Deepak Nayyar (Economics), Atul Sarma (Economics), T.

Indian Social Science Research has enjoyed tremendous encouragement and invaluable support of the Chairman, Professor V. R. Panchamukhi and the Member Secretary, Mr. Bhaskar Chatterjee. An Editorial Cell manned by qualified professionals has been set up to look after the work of the journal.
 
Indian Social Science Review (ISSR), a refereed journal, is truly evolving into a novel multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary journal. Its multi-dimensional broad-based approach is borne out by the contents carried in the issues published so far.
 
ISSR publishes articles of a general or comparative nature as well as those focused on particular themes. It is proposed to devote January-June, 2004 to the theme of Liberal Democracy. Professor Amiya Bagchi has agreed to act as its Guest Editor. Shorter communications, review articles, and book reviews are its regular features.
