The Tamil Academic Journal aims to promote original research that pertains to Tamil people globally. It is dedicated to publishing peer-reviewed articles from all disciplines, including the Arts, Humanities, Social and Applied Sciences. In addition to promoting academic research and the transfer of knowledge, the journal hopes to create a community for academics to collaborate within and outside their fields.
The Tamil Academic Journal is a UK-based initiative which started in February 2019 that is currently run voluntarily by a team of academics and students from diverse disciplines. The Tamil Academic Journal is not only aiming to fill in gaps in terms of research, it is seeking to disrupt traditional practices in academia by encouraging interdisciplinary approaches to understand topics more holistically. By being an open-access journal, it seeks to be inclusive in its dispersal of knowledge.
