Call for Articles and Reviewers for Asia in Focus, Issue 3:

Asia in Focus is a Nordic journal on Asia published by NIAS – Nordic Institute of Asian Studies. Over the years, NIAS has helped new scholars at Nordic member institutions reach an audience outside their own turf, by giving courses on how to publish and how to reach a global readership. With Asia in Focus, we have taken this one step further and offer early career researchers a unique opportunity to publish their work: we provide more focused guidance and feedback than they would get from a mainstream journal, and give full recognition and respect to the stage scholars are at on their academic career ladder.

We kindly invite Master students and Ph.D. students from the humanities and social sciences, who are affiliated to a Nordic institution, to submit an academic essay or academic article on a subject involving one or more Asian countries (from Central Asia to Oceania, excluding Australia and New Zealand) for Issue 3. 

We now also welcome article submissions all year round, and are keen to expand our editorial team with additional external reviewers. 

More detailed information can be found in the attached Call for Articles and on the journal website www.asiainfocus.dk. Please print and share the attachment with your colleagues, students, departments and networks.

For further enquiries, email the Editorial Team at asiainfocus@nias.ku.dk
