Call for Papers

Invitation to submit to the Journal of Current Chinese Affairs

The GIGA journal very much welcomes high-quality individual submissions for its current issues, as well as proposals for guest-edited editions for the volumes from 2020 onwards.

The Journal of Current Chinese Affairs (JCCA) is one of the most established and prestigious open-access, peer-reviewed international academic journals on all matters relating to contemporary China across discipline areas. It is now under a new joint editorial team made up of Kerry Brown of King’s College, London, and Georg Strüver of the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies, Hamburg. We are also very pleased to introduce our new editorial advisory board.

We very much welcome high-quality individual submissions for our current issues, as well as proposals for guest-edited editions for our volumes from 2020 onwards. While we invite submissions on all matters relating to current developments in Greater China, we are particularly interested in contributions on China’s foreign policy and international relations in Asia; domestic issues such as healthcare, social welfare and legal reform; and research on Hong Kong affairs. Submissions can be made to one of our three peer-reviewed sections: research articles, analyses and review articles.

Information about the submission process can be found here. Please note that you are receiving this email as a subscriber to JCCA’s email list, or as a former contributor or reviewer, and that you can update your subscriptions or unsubscribe at any time. For any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from interested authors and guest editors.
