The mission of KSHIP is two fold:
KSHIP will have rigorous international peer review standards with an Advisory and Review Board that meets the highest standards of academic research. KSHIP will primarily publish academic and scholarly journals and monographs in English; however, one of the strategic goals of KSHIP is to initiate and sustain a multilingual scholarly publishing platform.
To attain that goal we have a two-pronged strategy:
Public institutions, Citizen Science, Research publishing
As we harness new technology, we stay committed to IIT Indore’s motto Gyanam Sarvajanaya Hitaaya or Knowledge for the Benefit of All. As we launch this publishing venture there is an element of uncertainty, apprehension and fear of failure. But there is also excitement, anticipation and most importantly an opportunity to change the conversation- on research, scholarly publishing and open access. And who knows what that might lead to…
We will keep you informed of our publishing activities even as we look forward to engaging with our readers, authors and researchers. KSHIP will be publishing for researchers led by researchers. Join the conversation…
