Sangeetha Gopi said...

Hello Anil,
The exam we just answered was great- got introduced to a new format of answering it. The strict rules of not writing more than 75 words (even that havin a chance to scoore between 5 to 8) and negative marking in case word limit is exceeded was a fresh experience. Thanks for exposing to this innovative writing style.

Anil Pinto said...

Glad to know that Sangeetha. How did your friends find it?

JoseAngel said...

Dear Vikas, thank you for bringing this new journal to my notice. I have added the journal to the list. I wish the journal also gets a ISSN no, which adds to the motivation of people who want to contribute articles for the journals. It also adds to the credibility of the journal.

Renu said...

Hello Anil,
For the first time I came across a blog dedicated to literature only and was glad to explore. I saw that you answer every day so just wondering if i could find some help for my research. Could you please suggest some reading material on Namita Gokhle?

Dear Renu, Wasn't aware of Namita Gokhale. Thanks of bringing her to my notice. I have order all her books to the library. We did not have any.

I do not have any material on Namita. Whenever, I do, will post it here.

All the best for your research.

floofy said...

hello anil

i once saw an online jounral that was dedicated to victorian/nineteenth century literature and had only indian writers. it also publishes creative writing like poems/stories etc. i cannot seem to find it now- are u aware of any such journal?

Anil Pinto said...

Dear floofy, i do not recall. Sorry.


Anil Pinto said...

Dear Imran Khan, if the article is saying sth new and is well written please send it to journals at for Artha-Journal of Social Sciences. I can facilitate, if the peer reviewers accept it.

Anil Pinto said...

Dear Anonymous, Language in India claims it is is a refereed journal. Generally a non-peer reviewed journal does not carry much respect among the scholarly community, as academic is built on the principal of peers setting standards. Although just because a journal is not-peer reviewed does not not mean it's a sub-standard journal, a non-peer reviewed journal generally fails on quality parameters.
