The British Journal of Chinese Studies is a biannual, peer-reviewed, fully open access e-journal published by the British Association for Chinese Studies. We publish research on China, broadly defined, spanning the disciplines of the arts, humanities, and social sciences. We are interested in work on all time periods, and encourage contributors to establish contemporary relevance in their arguments. Engagement with Chinese language sources is essential to all research published in the journal. We are particularly committed to supporting gender and ethnic equality in Chinese Studies and welcome submissions from PhD students and early career researchers. Until issue 9.1(2019) we published under the name Journal of the British Association for Chinese Studies.
