IAFOR Publishing Opportunities
The IAFOR Journal of Asian Studies is a peer-reviewed, editorially independent, open access journal associated with IAFOR’s Conference’s on Asian Studies. A small number of papers from the Conference Proceedings will be selected by the journal editor(s) for reworking and revising, in line with normal processes of review. It is expected that between five and ten percent of papers included in any given Conference Proceedings will be developed for inclusion in the journal. The editor may also commission pieces or accept articles from the open call, subject to the same processes of peer review.
If your abstract is accepted and you have registered for the conference, you are encouraged to submit a full paper for inclusion in the official Conference Proceedings published on the website. Final papers should be uploaded through the submissions system in time for the submission deadline.
THINK, The Academic Platform, is IAFOR’s online magazine, publishing the latest in interdisciplinary research and ideas from some of the world’s foremost academics, many of whom have presented at IAFOR conferences. Content is varied in both subject and form, with everything from full research papers, to shorter opinion pieces, interviews, podcasts, film and photography.
