Five defining characteristics of global studies were identified by scholars at the first annual meeting of the Global Studies Consortium in Tokyo in 2008:
- Contemporary and historical
- Critical and multicultural
- Globally responsible
Though these are the major thrust areas but scholarly articles are not limited to these only. Researchers are requested to sent their papers on Human Sciences, Social Governance, Language, Literature, Media, Cinema, Politics, Environment, Economics or any other subject EXCLUDING Pure Sciences and Mathematical Sciences.

The journal is published by Center for Culture & Global Studies-
CENTER for CULTURE And GLOBAL STUDIES (CAGS) is a Inter-cultural Research Organization established to conduct Intercultural Researches. It works on non-profit basis to maintain the peace & harmony among global citizens. Its motto is inspired by United Nations’ charter of human rights which ensures ”reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.” Our goal and objective is very much similar to that one but to achieve that goal we use CULTURE, CINEMA, ART, LANGUAGE, LITERATURE & MEDIA as tools.The world is shrinking and at the same time a big problem of mis-understanding and gaps in cultural-communication are also arising. Terrorism is just not a fallout of religious fundamentalism but lack of understanding for other civilizations and cultures and citizens.
CAGS is an endeavor to bring the people of earth together through cultural activities, art teachings, language exchanges and media communications. Diversity is a positive concept for our beautiful world. We believe in protecting diversity but we also believe in that the whole world is one family with difference of opinions, cultures and thoughts. Communication technologies has brought the global citizens together. Now we share happiness & sadness almost instantly. In every situation we are a connected-community.
So, we believe in collective responsibility to shape this world free from war, violence, destruction, terrorism, inequality, biases and poverty. To achieve this target we conduct several activities. Some of them are exchange-programs for youths, students, artists, educationists, literatures, media-persons, social-scientists throughout the globe. We also organize conferences, seminars, symposium, literary and cultural fest etc. across the nations. Our prime object is to make this world peaceful & prosperous with a vision of “Global thought for Local Change.” We believe in fundamental freedoms for all without discrimination as to region, race, sex, language, culture or religion.
CAGS works for creation of conditions of stability and well-being which are necessary for peaceful and friendly relations among global-citizens based on respect for each other. To begin with we have chosen Australia, Brazil, Germany, India, Japan and the US, to lead the world and create congenial environment for entire globe to march ahead with peace, prosperity and non-violence.
