Journal of Chinese Humanities is a Diamond Open Access journal. Articles are published in Open Access at no cost to the author.

The peer-reviewed journal, Journal of Chinese Humanities, is an English-language extension of Literature, History and Philosophy (Wen Shi Zhe 《文史哲》), a famous Chinese journal published by Shandong University. The content is not restricted to one aspect of Chinese culture but rather spans important topics within the fields of Chinese history, philosophy, and literature. It covers both traditional and modern areas of re-search. Importantly, as opposed to most English language journals that treat on Chinese studies, this journal aims to represent the current research coming out of mainland China. Thus each issue will be composed primarily of articles from Chinese scholars working at Chinese institutions, while at the same time including a small number of articles from foreign authors so as to provide opposing perspectives. This way, top scholars in China can be read in the Western world, and our Western readers will benefit from a native perspective and first hand material and research coming out of China.

Every issue will be theme-based, focusing on an issue of common interest to the academic community both within and outside China. The majority of articles will relate directly to the central theme, but each issue will also accept a limited number of articles not directly related to the current theme. This journal primarily targets academics in the English-speaking world who are interested in multiple aspects of Chinese civilization and humanities. It will be of interest to both scholars and advanced students, both specialists and informed readers. It aims to become one of the best windows for western readers to deepen their understanding of Chinese literature, history and philosophy.

The Journal of Chinese Philosophy is an anonymously peer-reviewed philosophical journal devoted to the study of Chinese philosophy and Chinese thought in all their phases and stages of development and articulation.

In our view there are three main efforts among recent studies of Chinese philosophy which merit specific mention. First, there is an attempt to make available important philosophical materials (in careful translation) from the history of Chinese philosophy, which constitute a contribution to the scholarly understanding of Chinese philosophy in its original form. Second, there is an attempt to make appropriate interpretations and expositions in Chinese philosophy, which constitute a contribution to the theoretical understanding of Chinese philosophy in its true claims. Third, there is an attempt to make comparative studies within a Chinese philosophical framework or in relation to schools of thought in the Western tradition, which constitutes a contribution to the critical understanding of Chinese philosophy and its values. All three efforts will be recognized and incorporated in this journal as fundamental ingredients.

To better articulate these efforts, we wish to emphasize in this journal the employment of critical and rigorous methodology of analysis, organization, and synthesis, for we believe that Chinese philosophy, including those parts which have been labeled mystical, can be intelligently examined, discussed, and communicated. We will thus aim at clear and cogent presentation of ideas, arguments, and conclusions. We will honor creative work in Chinese philosophy—for we ask imagination as well as scholarship in our approach to various aspects and dimensions of Chinese philosophy.

As a summary statement of the intended comprehensive scope of this journal, we shall mention four major historical periods and five major fields of discipline in Chinese philosophy. The four major historical periods are Classical Philosophy in Pre-Qin and Han Eras, Neo-Daoism and Chinese Buddhism, Neo-Confucianism, and Modern and Contemporary Chinese Philosophy since the nineteenth century. The five major fields of discipline are Chinese Logic and Scientific Thinking, Chinese Metaphysical Theories, Chinese Moral Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion, Chinese Art Theories and Aesthetics, and Chinese Social and Political Philosophies. We hope that a cross fertilization of these periods and fields will yield a still greater wealth of insight and ideas on nature, life, society, government, and human destiny.
