RAS Journal

The RAS China Journal is now receiving submissions for the 2024 edition. Authors intending to submit an article must send an abstract or article outline to the editor before 31 March 2024, and completed articles will be due 15 June 2024. 

The journal generally comprises original unpublished research and observations, essays, book reviews, and other items of interest to our readership. Translations from Chinese into English are also welcome. The scope of the journal is broad: we hope the journal will inform readers about life in China and Asia – past, present and future.

Although authors are welcome to write about any subject of interest to Asia scholars, please note that material contravening the guidelines established by the Chinese government for speech and publications will not be accepted. 

You can view past examples of the RAS China Journal at the Royal Asiatic Society China Reading Room at Dongan Lu #888, West Bund, Shanghai. It holds an almost complete set of journals going back to 1858, which document the earliest years of the expatriate community in Shanghai, and the Royal Asiatic Society’s history in China.

You can see the guidelines for author submissions below. Please feel free to contact the journal editor at raschina@ras-china.org for more information.
