Welcome to East Asian History in its new electronic form. East Asian History is an international refereed journal publishing scholarly research on all aspects of historical studies in East Asia. This new online format enables authors to include sound and film files and photomedia within their articles, enlarging the journal’s scope into fields of historical documentation, such as cinema or music history, previously limited by print publishing.
This online form of East Asian History is a collaboration between The Australian Centre on China in the World at the Australian National University and the Leiden University Institute of Area Studies at Leiden University in The Netherlands, and is jointly edited by Remco Breuker (Leiden) and Benjamin Penny (ANU). The editorial board comprises three scholars from each university: Geremie R. Barmé (ANU), Katarzyna Cwiertka (Leiden), Roald Maliangkay (ANU), Ivo Smits (Leiden), Tessa Morris-Suzuki (ANU) and Barend ter Haar (Leiden).
East Asian History was published in print from 1991 to 2008 (issues 1-36), and was edited by Geremie R. Barmé (to 2007), and Benjamin Penny (from 2007). The journal’s predecessor, Papers on Far Eastern History, was published by The Australian National University’s Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies from 1970 to 1990. When Papers on Far Eastern History became East Asian History the new journal employed an original and striking format that the new online version of the journal has adapted and developed in the new medium.
East Asian History will be published twice each year. Articles published in the journal are submitted to double-blind peer review unless otherwise stated. Final selection of papers is at the discretion of the editors.
