Bamboo and Silk is a peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by the Center of Bamboo and Silk Manuscripts of Wuhan University. Based on unearthed Chinese bamboo and silk manuscripts from the Warring States period (476–221 BC) and Qin (221–206BC), Han (206BC–220 AD), Wei (220–265 AD) and Jin (265–420 AD) Dynasties, this journal focuses on studies of character identification and textual reconstitution, and studies of the social, political, economic and legal systems as well as ideology, culture, language, customs and other aspects reflected by these manuscripts. The journal includes research articles on bamboo and silk manuscripts and book reviews. All articles are peer reviewed by anonymous outside experts as well as by the editorial board, and reflect the current state of international academic research issues on Chinese bamboo and silk manuscripts.

Bamboo and Silk is primarily based on Jian Bo 簡帛, a Chinese journal that was initially published in 2006 by Shanghai Chinese Classics Publishing House Co., Ltd., with some articles chosen from Jian Bo 簡帛 and translated into English. The journal accepts submissions in English as well.

As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Governance and Public Policy in China is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series. This quarterly journal addresses a key gap in the academic literature related to China’s modern governance and public policy, providing timely and comprehensive review articles targeted to both specialist and non-specialist readers. Each edition will be dedicated to one article, of approximately 50 pages in length, which surveys the literature on a given topic and provides a framework for understanding the evolution of thought in this area of inquiry.

Topics will include key thematic areas of change and continuity in Chinese governance as well as the institutional perspectives critical to understand modern China. Topic areas will concern: inequality, social policy, financial policy, health policy, environmental policy, water and energy policy, civil society, the politics of urbanization, democracy, labor, human rights, and gender. Additionally, articles will address questions of ideology, the role of the NPC, the role of the Party, local politics at the village, county, and provincial levels, civil/military relations, and business/government relations.

The journal’s target audience will be a composite of both specialist and non-specialist readerships. Sinologists trained in a variety of disciplines, including political science, sociology, economics, public policy, and other areas will find utility in up-to-date review articles. As China’s rise in the global political, economic, and social spheres attracts increasing numbers of non-Sinologists eager to understand China’s domestic levers of decision-making and power, this journal will also provide an important introduction to current analysis. It is the hope of the editors to create an intellectual bridge between such populations, and between past and current state-of-the-art thinking on Chinese governance.

This journal is published as China Law and Society Review.

The Li Fang-Kuei Society for Chinese Linguistics 紀念李方桂先生中國語言學研究學會, named in honor of a consummate scholar who made monumental contributions in Chinese, Tibetan, Tai and American Indian linguistics, was established in Seattle on October 1, 2003 by a group including Professor Li Fang-Kuei’s family members, former students, friends, colleagues, and admirers. The Society launched its flagship journal, Bulletin of Chinese Linguistics in May 2006 together with the Center for Chinese Linguistics of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as a permanent tribute to Professor Li Fang-Kuei. The Bulletin of Chinese Linguistics plays a vital role in the Society’s mission to foster high-quality research in Chinese linguistics and related fields. Its areas of interest include Sino-Tibetan and other languages related to Chinese such as Tibeto-Burman and Tai-Kradai. Published biannually, the journal provides a global forum for scholarly exchanges to continue the great tradition embodied and fostered by Professor Li, and to shed new light and explore new horizons in historical, comparative, and typological studies. All articles are peer-reviewed and are published in either English or Chinese.

Sources are the basis for research on history, not only in Chinese Studies. Yet location, content or the very existence of sources are often unknown and qualified information is sometimes hard to come by. Chinese historians are often unaware of Qing archival material outside China, but also Western sinologists are only too often hampered by lack of knowledge about archives in other countries. China Archives helps scholars in Modern Chinese History to the rich sources available in Europe and beyond. It publishes research on materials and sources in archives, libraries and collections outside China, ranging from the accessibility of sources to the relevance of their content. China Archives not only offers research articles on single documents or files, but on a regular basis also offers the indispensable overview articles of a whole archive or the holdings of a (European) country.

The China Law and Society Review provides state-of-the-art review articles on research about the development and functioning of law and legal institutions in China. It focuses on reviewing interdisciplinary socio-legal research that analyses law in action in China. It publishes commissioned articles by leading senior scholars as well as emerging talent from across the globe. First issues will center on legal institutions, such as the courts, legal profession, legislators, prosecutors, the media, the party, and civil society organizations. Later issues will look in more depth at the development and functioning of substantive areas of law, including tort, labor, environment, intellectual property, criminal, and corporate law. In each issue cross-cutting themes will emerge which are likely to include legal consciousness, access to justice, rule of law, enforcement and compliance, regulatory strategies, law and development, ethics and corruption, judicial independence, central-local relations, and formal and informal institutions. Where deemed interesting, publications are to position the literature on China in a broader comparative context, in order to analyze China’s special characteristics as well as draw out theoretical significance.

In the course of its publication the Review will establish a comprehensive and authoritative account of Law and Society in China. By updating the electronically published articles on set intervals, the timeliness of the reviews will be ensured. The Review will be of interest to scholars of Chinese law, Chinese politics and governance, Chinese business, as well as Chinese society. Moreover it will be of interest to public and private practitioners seeking to understand how to deal with law and legal institutions in the Chinese context.
