Journal analysis has been an important tool to understand various facets of academic publishing trends. A content analysis of research published in Man and Society: A Journal of North-East Studies was conducted for Volumes I through XIV. A total of 20 issues of the bi-annually published journal were analyzed involving the placement of 116 articles in 9 substantive content categories revealing information about the authorship, types of research conducted as well as areas of research focus. In addition, the study has also examined the types and locations of institutions the authors are affiliated with. This has been done with a broad view to examine research focus and trends in the journal as a lens to understanding broader perspectives in scholarship and research in the Northeastern region. The findings indicate that the journal has stayed true to its mission of publishing articles across various disciplines pertaining to multiple issues of North-East India.
