The Dibrugarh University Journal of English Studies (DUJES) is a collective effort of the Department of English, Dibrugarh University. Accordingly, in lieu of a Chief Editor/Chief Editors, there is constituted an Editorial Board comprising the faculty of the Department of English. Within this collective, the role of Editors is handed to two faculty on a rotational basis in a bid to ensure impartial academic and research approaches in relation to the journal.
