Ming Qing Studies 2018

edited by PAOLO SANTANGELO, Sapienza University of Rome

We are glad to inform you that Ming Qing Studies 2018 has been issued in November by “Write Up Site”: http://www.writeupsite.com/ming-qing-studies-2018.html.

MING QING STUDIES is an annual publication focused on late imperial China and the broader geo-cultural area of East Asia during the premodern and modern period. Its scope is to provide a forum for scholars from a variety of fields seeking to bridge the gap between ‘oriental’ and western knowledge. Articles may concern any discipline, including sociology, literature, psychology, anthropology, history, geography, linguistics, semiotics, political science, and philosophy. Contributions by young and post-graduated scholars are particularly welcome.

Provided that the process of double-blind peer-review proceeds with no delay and the scrutiny of our experts confirms the scientificity, scholarly soundness and academic value of the author’s work, it is one of MING QING STUDIES’ commitments to publish the submitted manuscript within one year after its formal acceptance. This would ensure a timely circulation of the author’s research outcomes without imposing hard limits on word counts or compromising the quality of peer-review, which, for publications in the same field, is usually much longer. The average article length is 10.000-15.000 words, but long articles and notes on focused topics are also taken into consideration.
