Contributor Guidelines
The editor invites submission of article-length manuscripts (not exceeding 10,000 words/35 pages double-spaced including notes). The journal seeks original scholarly contributions that challenge old paradigms, propose new ideas and theses, set forth innovative research and methodologies, or engage significant historiographic or interpretive issues regarding China’s long twentieth century as seen through mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, or diasporic activities. Comparative empirical and/or theoretical studies that are rooted in Chinese experience but touch on non-China-related subjects are welcome. In addition, proposals for reviews of significant non-English Western-, Chinese-, Japanese-, or Korean-language works relating to twentieth-century China, translations of influential articles, or symposium-style special issues are welcomed. The journal also seeks to provide a forum for scholarly conference and project announcements and similar activities that promote the academic pursuits of the journal’s readers around the world.
