Contemporary Voice of Dalit is a leading multi-disciplinary journal in the field of Dalit studies. It focuses on the publication of original research articles on issues related to Dalit, which are accepted only after a strict, double-blind peer review process. Emphasis is placed on both theoretical and empirical studies developed from different disciplinary angles. Book reviews and review articles are also the regular features of the journal. Periodically, commentaries on important topical issues also find a place in this journal. Authors are encouraged to offer new theoretical and scholarly approaches to Dalit writings. In particular, Dalit scholars are urged to make their special contributions.

We strive to cater to the interests of a broad readership. This includes researchers, academics, activists, administrators and students. Keeping this in mind, authors are requested to make their submissions.
