Generic calls for papers, book reviews and information on recently defended PhDs


The JEACS also welcomes submissions of unpublished articles on any aspect of Chinese culture, across disciplines and time periods. For submission guidelines, see the link above.


The JEACS is looking to review scholarly monographs published in Europe since 2019. We are particularly interested in reviewing books published in other languages than English so as to increase the visibility of some of the less frequently quoted European languages of Chinese studies. Proposals from authors, editors, publishers and potential reviewers are welcome and will be considered and assessed by the editors provided the suggested monographs fit the highest standards of academic publishing. Submission deadline: April 30, 2021.

In order to better promote the academic production of early career scholars from European institutions, the JEACS seeks to compile a list of recently defended PhDs. These must have been defended between January and December 2020, and must have been awarded by a European University.

These include: author’s first and last name; title of the PhD (in original language and in English); link to online repository (when available); institution; month of award; 500 words abstract (in English).
