Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. I have submitted my article. When will it be published?

Receipt of articles is immediately acknowledged by email. If contributors have not received an acknowledgement within a week of submission, they are requested to check their spam folders for the mail and write to us at [email protected]

Please note that the acknowledgement is only for confirming receipt of the article and does not imply that any decision regarding acceptance has been made.

Every effort is taken to complete early processing of the articles we receive. Given the time taken for internal reading and external refereeing for a high volume of articles received daily, it can take up to six months for a final decision on whether an article is accepted for publication. Articles accepted for publication can take up to twelve months from the date of acceptance to appear in the EPW.

2. I want to re-publish my article that was first published in the EPW. How do I go about it?

The copyright of all articles published in EPW belongs to the author or to the organisation where the author is employed as determined by the author’s terms of employment. As such, EPW has no objection to authors republishing or revising their articles for other publications. However, the republished article must mention prominently that a version of the article first appeared in the Economic & Political Weekly . It must also include the publication details along with the URL of the original EPW article.

3. My article was published as a working paper in my university/organisation. Can I submit it to EPW?

EPW encourages submission of original, unpublished articles. In case a contributor wishes to submit a working paper, the details of prior publication must be specified in the accompanying email. Please note that decision regarding republication of such papers is a matter of editorial judgment.

4. My article has been accepted for publication in the Engage section. Will it also be published in print?

No. Articles published in the Engage section will not be republished in print.

5. My article is on a topical subject/ contains data that may become outdated. Will it be prioritised for early publication?

All submitted articles are reviewed prior to acceptance. Articles with immediate relevance for policy and the current news cycle would be considered for early publication. Please note that this is a matter of editorial judgment.

6. I have been asked to revise my article. Will it be accepted after revisions?

All revised articles undergo a review process to ensure that the article has been revised satisfactorily. An “Action Taken” Report responding point-wise to the suggestions made by the reviewer must be sent with the revised article. Without this report, the revised article will not be considered. All revisions must be done in Track Change mode.

7. Can I submit a book review?

EPW commissions book reviews. We do not usually accept unsolicited book reviews. However, all book reviews that are received are read with interest and unsolicited reviews, on occasion, are considered for publication.

8. Can I send photographs with my article?

Photographs are not published in the print issue. In case photographs are crucial to the article’s focus, these will be published only in the web version of the article. 

Contributors submitting articles for the Engage section are encouraged to submit photographs pertinent to their article.

The Engage section also considers photo essay submissions. Please note that contributors must own the copyright over all photographs submitted by them. Contributors must also provide the attribution details for each photograph. 

9. My article has been accepted for publication. When can I expect it to be published?

Every effort is taken to complete early processing of the articles we receive. Articles accepted for publication can take up to 12 months from the date of acceptance to appear in the EPW.

10. Will I receive a print copy of the issue in which my article has been published?

All authors (except contributors to the letter section) receive a copy of the relevant print issue. 

11. Can I see the edits to my article before it is published?

As a practice, we do not send edited versions or proofs of the article before publication to contributors. In cases where the article has undergone significant restructuring, deletion, or heavy editing, an exception may be made.

The workshop is being jointly organised by the editors of the Urban Studies Journal and the Review of Urban Affairs , Economic and Political Weekly.

The workshop will include:

  • Intensive sessions comprising peer review
  • Real-time revision / restructuring
  • Guidance from scholars who have published in EPW / USJ
  • Small-group working sessions;
  • Input sessions in which scholars who have successfully published in USJ and RUA will share their writing strategies and offer guidance;
  • Sessions that identify and discuss criteria and conditions for being accepted in USJ and RUA; and sessions that analyse published papers from USJ and RUA to identify their structure, arguments, framing and style.

Who can apply?

  • Students in advanced Masters’ or Ph.D. programmes may apply
  • Junior faculty or practitioners are also welcome to apply
  • The applicant should have a written and complete draft manuscript.
  • Please note that the manuscript should be scholarly / academic in nature and written with the intent of submitting it to a reputed domestic / international urban journal

how to publish an article in epw

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.

Ratio of a journal's items, grouped in three years windows, that have been cited at least once vs. those not cited during the following year.
