Call for papers: International Journal of Area Studies

Deadline: 15th Jun 2013

Planned publication time: Oct 2013

 

We would like to invite proposals for articles for an open access academic English language blind peer review journal ‘International Journal of Area Studies‘ to be published in October, 2013. This issue is devoted to Chinese and Taiwanese studies.
The Journal, published semiannually in March and October, is devoted to area studies from the humanities and social sciences perspectives (including but not limited to research on history, religion, philosophy, politics, and social processes in the regions of the world).
We are interested in receiving article proposals related to different facets of the aforementioned scientific fields.
Though the Journal first of all is aimed at becoming a scholarly outlet for scholars engaged in area (including North European) studies who are based in Central and Eastern Europe, it naturally welcomes contributions by authors residing and working anywhere in the world. In addition, the Journal welcomes texts by aspiring young researchers, including graduate and post-graduate students. Next to texts based on original research, the Journal accepts review articles with in-depth analysis of relevant publications in area studies. Review articles are subject to blind peer review process and are treated as research articles in their own right.

Submissions:

Manuscripts and enquiries should be submitted to the Editor via Emails: ijas@pmdf.vdu.lt and ijas.academia@gmail.com.
The articles should be between 6,000 to 10,000 words and the used figures should be submitted together. Each article should be accompanied by an abstract of up to 300 words. The Journal uses a ‘Harvard-style’ referencing system.
Authors are anticipated to provide information about themselves: name(s), surname, academic title and position, name of his/her institution, address for correspondence and email address. This information should be indicated in the body of the submission letter, but not in the text of work.
The detailed instructions for authors of the Journal can be found at the Webpage: http://asc.vdu.lt/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/IJAS-instructions.pdf
