The International Journal of Taiwan Studies, cosponsored by Academia Sinica and the European Association of Taiwan Studies, is a principal outlet for the dissemination of cutting-edge research on Taiwan. Its editorial office is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and is hosted by the Centre of Taiwan Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. IJTS is the first internationally collaborative, multidisciplinary, and peer-reviewed academic research journal in English dedicated to all aspects of Taiwan Studies, including social sciences, arts and humanities, and topics which are interdisciplinary in nature. This publication on Taiwan Studies, a rapidly growing field with an increasingly critical influence, aims to reach academics and policy makers of different cultural backgrounds, disciplinary perspectives and methodological approaches.

The IJTS welcomes submission of original research papers (6,000–10,000 words), review essays (3,000–5,000 words), and book reviews (800–1,200 words). We look forward to receiving papers that are localised in focus (for example, analysis of a specific historical or current event) and that are more global in their outlook (for example, forging links between Taiwan and a wider international, cultural or theoretical/intellectual context). Researchers are encouraged to position Taiwan and the relevant issues they examine in different global, regional, and local contexts and processes. Please follow our Instructions for Authors and send your manuscript via the Editorial Manager (EM) online submission system, located here.

Meanwhile if you would like to propose a conference report, institutional report, or a forum discussion, please feel free to get in touch with the IJTS Editorial Office at ijts.office@eats-taiwan.eu for further discussions.
