Silk Road exists to promote evidence-based scholarly research in social sciences and public policy studies that make the affairs of the Great Silk Road countries an area of significant interest, scholarship and impact. Applied interdisciplinary and empirical papers are welcomed.
The journal is intended for the reader from the academic, policy and private sectors with an interest in research specifically applied in the context of Silk Road countries. We welcome thematic clusters of articles on a topic, that have an analytical synergy interesting for wide audiences. Thematic clusters are welcomed and should organize articles describing the problem, issue or phenomenon potentially linking varying fields and disciplines. The primary category for submissions is original peer-review research articles. Issues might include commentaries (1500-3000 usually), interview (1500), policy (3000) and book reviews (1000-1500).
All research articles will undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous double-blind refereeing by two referees. The journal intends to address readers, particularly young scholars, in Uzbekistan and the broader Silk Road region. It will keep its readership informed as to the latest trends and issues in economics, business and policy(e.g., demography, education, health, etc).
Limitations: maximum 10,000 words per article, 6 articles per issue.
1st Issue theme: The current state and future of research across the Silk Road
This volume will examine the latest trends and findings from multiple disciplinary perspectives that will drive research on Silk Road countries forward. Manuscripts may include the types of research problems and questions that are not yet being considered and current research that strongly points to an evolving research agenda. Contributors are encouraged to ‘think the future’ as a new generation of scholars emerges from Silk Road countries. We hope the articles will inspire readers to consider the Silk Road more deeply as an area of rapid and diverse change against a backdrop of strong cultural traditions.
