General Call for Student/PhD Papers on China
The double-blind peer-reviewed Mapping China Journal (founded in 2017) is publishing a general Call for Papers for all interested students and early stage PhD researchers working on China.
For the 2019 edition of the journal, we accept all papers on:
- Domestic politics in China
- China’s international relations
- China’s internal and external security policies
- Comparative studies and China
We are looking to publish political science based original research on China, but also welcome contributions from other disciplines. We strongly encourage submitting work which includes Chinese language sources.
This Call for Papers is explicitly aimed at those Bachelor, Master and early stage PhD students/researchers with an interdisciplinary background in Area Studies, Political and Social Science or in International Relations who have been working on or want to work on China and who are looking to publish their first original research for a wider audience. Exceptional essays and research papers will be published in the third edition of the Mapping China Journal which will be published in November 2019. Papers in both English and German will be accepted.
Interested authors are invited to submit a proposal in English or German (one page or 500 words) of their paper via email to the editors of the Mapping China Journal until 15th March 2019. Proposals can also be submitted via our submissions page. The peer review process of the Mapping China Journal requires at least one extensive round of revisions done by the authors. For further information, authors should refer to the journal submission guidelines and the MCJ ethics statement before handing in any work. Proposals need to indicate if a research paper or essay will be handed in.
We are looking forward to your submissions!
