JBS is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal registered in the USA. JBS has the goal of publishing cutting-edge research on Bangladesh and reaching a wide range of academic institutions and research centers throughout the world.

We encourage articles from all disciplines of scholarship pertaining to the study of Bangladesh, the Bangladesh diaspora, or comparative studies in which Bangladesh is included. Our aim is to provide a platform for rigorous intellectual and academic research as well as studies that are practical and relevant to everyday solutions and policymaking. Articles should address Bangladesh's problems and prospects from theoretical, empirical, or analytical perspectives prevalent in academic disciplines. Articles must be grounded in theory, analysis, and referenced work, and be able to address readers beyond the specific disciplines they represent.
