Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde (Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Southeast Asia), now more than one-and-a-half century old, is an interdisciplinary journal on Southeast Asia, with a strong focus on Indonesia. The editors especially welcome articles from anthropology, history, political science, law, sociology, social geography, development studies, urban studies, literature, socio-linguistics, and economics. Articles requiring significant technical knowledge from our readers (e.g., some economic or linguistic studies) are considered more suited for a disciplinary journal and will not be accepted by the Bijdragen. Submissions about topical issues can be treated with high priority and ‘overtake’ articles brought to our attention earlier.

This is a fully Open Access journal, which means that all articles are freely available online, ensuring maximum, worldwide dissemination of content, in exchange for an Article Publication Charge.

As the journal receives a subvention for publication from the learned society Vereniging KITLV (NL) the Article Publication Charge is waived. For more information visit the Brill Open dedicated webpage.

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.
