Call for papers: IN FOCUS – a new Nordic journal for young researchers on Asia

September 15, 2014 - 00:00

NIAS, Nordic Institute of Asian Studies has since 2007 run the blog IN FOCUS, providing academics and researchers on Asia a forum for discussions on up-to-date topics in Asia.

Now we want to take advantage of this platform and publish a biannual journal for Master students and Ph.D. students affiliated to a Nordic institution to publish their findings in a widely accessible and transnational forum. The focal point of the journal is the modern Asian societies viewed from the standpoints of social science and humanities. NIAS focus on the Asian countries from Central Asia to Oceania (excluding Australia and New Zealand).

We aim at a high academic level in a short, focused and readable form. We encourage experimental article formats; e.g. interviews, graphs or field reports based on in depth studies. The journal will be freely available for download and online reading on Asiaportal.

Time Schedule
Abstract deadline:  15. September. Send in approx. 500 words, including research questions and main findings.
Article deadline:       15. October.
Publication:             January

All inquiries, abstracts and articles should be send to info@nias.ku.dk marked “InFocus” in the subject line.
