Social Action

(A Quarterly Review of Social Trends)

Social Action has been published continuously since 1951 by the Indian Social Institute. This Journal has been capturing the social dimension of independent India. It is now published by the Social Action Trust. The Journal attempts to reach activists in the field with committed intellectual and theoretical concerns, as well as intellectuals and academics seriously committed to action in the field. This is a delicate balance to maintain and the editorial team strives to keep the Journal relevant and informative to both sets of readers.

A must for researchers and to all serious citizens who have a social concern; Meaningful and thought-provoking BOOK REVIEWS provide you with an insight into the treasures the books hold within.

Articles are well researched. A boon indeed for your questioning mind. It definitely will keep you one step ahead of the topsy-turvy social trends in our country. Social Action is published on the 15th of January, April, July and October. Each issue is devoted to a chosen theme, significant and current at the time, and announced in advance. Articles of 4,500 -5,000 words are invited on these announced themes. The Journal also carries non-thematic articles, reports from the field and current comment. The Book Review section is a regular feature of the Journal.

Articles in Social Action are indexed in the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), Research Abstracts, Sociology of Education Abstracts, Book Review Index, and Review of Population Reviews. A micro-film edition is available from University Microfilms International, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48106 USA.
