MEJO, the MELOW Journal of World Literature, is a peer-refereed journal brought out annually by MELOW, the Society for the Study of the Multi-Ethnic Literatures of the World. It was earlier called the MELUSMELOW Journal which was published by MELOW 2011 onward.


The essays submitted for MELOW are screened, peer-reviewed and selected before they are published. There is a Board of Editors especially appointed for the purpose. Whereas in the initial years the Society favoured a print publication, and the MELUS-MELOW journal (ISSN 2249-4839) was published annually, with the changing times, MELOW decided to move on to online publication. The result is MELOW, which is a continuation of the MELUS-MELOW Journal. It is the outcome of almost two decades of experience in editing, proofreading and publishing.
