General Call for Student/PhD Papers on Greater China

The double-blind peer-reviewed Mapping China Journal (founded in 2017) is announcing a General Call for Papers for all interested students and early-stage PhD researchers working on Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).

For the 2020 edition of the journal, we accept all papers on:

  • Domestic political developments in Greater China
  • China’s regional and international relations
  • Comparative studies and China/ Hong Kong/ Macau/ Taiwan

We are looking to publish political science-based original research on Greater 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 Master and 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 original research for a wider audience. The selected essays (4000-5000 words) and research papers (8000-10000 words) will be published in the fourth edition of the Mapping China Journal which will be published in November 2020. Papers in both English and German will be accepted.

Interested authors are invited to submit a proposal and a short bio in English or German (one page or 500 words) of their paper via email to the editors of the Mapping China Journal ( until 17th February 2020. 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!
