Issa publishes two quarterly journals- Bhartiya Samajik Chintan (in English) and Samayik Samajik Chintan (in Hindi). It is planning to bring out Journals in other Indian languages. It is proposed to bring out at least one research Journal in each of the Indian languages. Paucity of funds is the biggest hurdle to the realization of this objective. ISSA has created a JOURNAL ENDOWMENT FUND and seeks to raise at least 10.0 lakh from contributions and donations from its members, well wishers and charitable institutions. Contributions/Donations to the Journal Endowment Fund should be sent by a cheque/bank draft in favour of Indian Academy of Social Sciences, Allahabad. Such Contributions are exempted from Income Tax under 80 (G) of Income Tax Act.
