Forum for Culture Studies publishes two Peer-reviewed, International Journals, namely Asian Quarterly: An International Journal of Contemporary Issues (AQ) and Asian Journal of English Studies(AJES). Asian Quarterly, launched in May 2003, ia a multidisciplinary journal that aims at providing a platform for reading and publishing latest research in the fields of arts and humanities with a focus on culture, language, literature, criticism and linguistics. Asian Journal of English Studies, launched in 2010 focuses on various perspectives to English Literature and Language.  

Both the journals are carefully planned so as to live up to the expectations of its readers. We are aware of the fact that academicians, particularly, need to catch up with what has been happening in the world and to acquaint themselves with different perspectives of the experts who really have a grasp of their subject. Most of them also need an instrument that readily serves their own need of expression.  

The journals are published by Forum for Culture Studies, a registered Public Trust and are edited and reviewed by senior academicians and research scholars associated with the Pune-based Research Institute, namely, Institute of Advanced Studies in English. Both are refereed and highly acclaimed journals having a base of subscribers and contributors in about ten countries. Both are peer-reviewed, International Journals with ISSN Numbers and figure into the 'List of Journals' approved by the University Grants Commission of India (UGC).  

Asian Quartely is published quarterly in the months of February, May, August and November. The Four issues of Asian Journal for English Studies are published every year in the months of January, April, July and October.
