Diplomatist Magazine was launched in October of 1996 as the signature
magazine of L.B. Associates (Pvt) Ltd, a contract publishing house based
in Noida, a satellite town of New Delhi, India, the National Capital.
Diplomatist covers diplomatic and current affairs, mostly (but not entirely)
pertaining to relations between India and other countries.
Diplomatist is well received by the diplomatic, expatriate, government, business
and academic communities of India and abroad. In fact, the Government of India,
Ministry of External Affairs, has reproduced some Diplomatist articles in their
Diplomatist Supplements: Sometimes supplements are standalone, such as
the one we produced in collaboration with the Canadian High Commission that
focused on Canadian initiatives in India. Supplements can also be embedded in
current editions such as the one we published on Bangladesh.
Diplomatist Online: In the Year 2002 we took the decision to broaden the
reach of the magazine by launching Diplomatist Online as a supplement to

updates on a (sometimes) daily basis, depending on happenings in terms of
worldwide diplomacy. It also contains the most up-to-date listing of foreign
diplomatic missions in India, and Indian missions abroad. Other diplomatic
directories are updated on an annual basis, whereas ours is updated whenever a
change occurs, such as a new Ambassador presents credentials and thus officially
becomes the envoy of his country in India.
Contribute Articles to Diplomatist: We invite diplomats and other
knowledgeable individuals, such as academics, to contribute relevant articles to
Diplomatist Magazine. We do, however, reserve the right to edit and/or reject
contributed articles. We will send back edited articles to the author for
his/her approval prior to publishing – most editing pertains to small
corrections in English grammar; English being our mother tongue, and not
necessarily that of the authors.
Feedback Welcome: We welcome ‘Letters to the Editor’ which we post under
the link of the same name, and in Diplomatist in print form. Please send your
feedback to email@example.com, under the subject line of ‘LETTER TO
