*Translations* should be 3,000-6,000 words in length, preceded by a
1,200-1,500-word introduction contextualizing the text or excerpt. If your

author(s)’ responsibility.

*Sagar* publishes innovative academic writing in the humanities and social
sciences of South Asia, as well as critical translations. It was
established in 1993 and is published annually by the South Asia Institute
at the University of Texas at Austin. Submissions for our print issue are
blindly evaluated by an editorial board of advanced scholars in the field.

*Sagar* is listed on EBSCO databases, which are used for academic research
by tens of thousands of institutions worldwide. This will substantially
enhance the visibility of articles published in the journal.

Besides our annual print volume, we also publish online essays all through
the year. These essays should be 1,500 words or less and should include
citations. Submissions with images, video and/or audio are encouraged.
Online essays are blindly evaluated by an editorial collective of UT
graduate students in consultation with our faculty board.

Our archive reviews are also published throughout the year. We encourage
contributions from scholars who have recently consulted particular
archives. Contributors should include information about archive holdings,
accessibility and fees, working hours, duplication, and food and lodging.
