Founded in 2001 originally by a consortium of European universities, the European Journal of East Asian Studies (EJEAS) is a global scholarly journal specializing in post-1945 East Asian studies, with a focus on East Asia’s socio-economic development, regional affairs and external relations. The journal’s central objective is to promote interdisciplinary contributions in social sciences for a better conceptual and empirical analysis of East Asia’s recent and current evolution, at infra- and supra-national levels, including the knowledge of local dimensions. Contributors are invited to cross-combine disciplines such as anthropology, geography, history, economics, political science, psychology, and sociology. They can be also inspired by domains of study such as cultural studies, international development, foreign affairs, global studies, public policy, corporate affairs and management, etc.

An additional objective is to encourage and welcome, from the region and outside, original articles suggesting new approaches, research methods and contents in area studies, as applied to 21st century East Asia, and also as a possible redefinition or revisiting of classical Asian and regional studies.

Articles can address the wider East Asian region, or sub-regions such as ASEAN/Southeast Asia, and individual countries or groups of countries. Oceania and the South Pacific are not covered in this journal.

Peer Review Policy: All articles published in European Journal of East Asian Studies undergo a double-anonymous external peer review process. This includes articles published in special issues.
