Nexus: A Journal of Cultural Studies has been envisaged as a premiere journal in Pakistan in the field of literature, language, art, culture, and screen studies. The journal aims at re-vitalizing scholarly debate regarding all aspects of culture and civilizational identity in Pakistan, South Asia, and the Middle East by publishing cutting-edge research from and about the region.

Nexus: A Journal of Cultural Studies invites research papers, review articles, and book reviews for its inaugural issue. The theme of the inaugural issue is open but the authors are expected to explore the relationship between literary, cultural, and linguistic practices and societal configurations in colonial and postcolonial spaces. The issues that are debated in the papers should be of interest to informed readers and academic experts who are intellectually engaged with postcolonial cultural studies in South Asia, the Middle East and the Global South.

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the latest style guidelines provided by the Modern Languages Association (MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers). The number of footnotes should be kept at minimum and footnotes should be discursive not referential. References to published material should be in the body of the text and should not interrupt the flow of the text.

The journal follows a policy of zero-tolerance for plagiarism and publishes articles, review articles, and book reviews only after they have gone through a rigourous and anonymous peer-review process.

Manuscript Length: Research articles should be between 5000 to 8000 words, review articles 3000 to 4000 words, and book reviews 2000 to 3000 words.
