Call for Manuscripts: "Demographics, Social Policy, and Asia (Part I)"

Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our print and online readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators and academics in the humanities and social sciences who are often not specialists with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Professors and high school teachers also utilize many EAA articles and essays as student readings.  Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration.
