Gauhati University Journal of Philosophy (GUJP) is one of the oldest departmental Research Journals of Gauhati University. With the First Publication in the year 1993 under the able leadership of Professor Dilip Kumar Chakravarty and Professor Nilima Sharma as Editors, the journal has a glorious history of publishing Six Annual volumes in that series. However, due to certain factors there was a long gap period during which there was no publication of the Journal.

The Department has however revived it in a new and advanced form, and published the First volume in the New Series in the year 2016. It has already published 4 volumes of the Journal in its new version. The 5th is under process.
