East Asian Publishing and Society is a journal dedicated to the study of the publishing of texts and images in East Asia, from the earliest times up to the present. The journal provides a platform for multi-disciplinary research by scholars addressing publishing practices in China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Vietnam.
East Asian Publishing and Society invites articles that treat any aspect of publishing history: production, distribution, and reception of manuscripts, imprints (books, periodicals, pamphlets, and single sheet prints), and electronic text. Studies of authorship and editing, the business of publishing, reading audiences and reading practices, libraries and book collection, the relationship between the state and publishing—to name just a few possible topics—are welcome.
Brill’s new journal aims to print innovative studies on East Asian publishing to meet the scholarly community's expanding interest in this rich and varied field.
