About the Journal

Aims & Scope

The IAFOR Journal of Asian Studies is a progressive new journal that welcomes scholarship from the late 20th century into what is being called the Asian Century. It aims to explore social, economic, political and cultural trends in the growing connectivity across cultures in Asia. The cultural citizenship that is evolving from this convergence of cultures embraces a regional empathy and conviviality of harmony, or hybridism. The journal is interested in presenting views on cultural mobility, cultural arbitration and understanding, citizenship beyond borders, migration and identity (national, cultural and diasporic), belonging and sharing, media trade, national branding, ‘soft-power competition’ and popular culture. It is peer reviewed and aims to give a voice to scholars considering a wide range of emerging aspects of Asian studies.

The journal editor welcomes submissions related to Asian studies from academics, practitioners and professionals from within the field. Full papers submitted to the related IAFOR Conference Proceedings research repositories will also be considered, providing that they meet the journal submission guidelines. Authors will be contacted if their paper is selected for review. All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes, regardless of whether or not the authors have attended a related IAFOR conference.
