Journal of Modern Chinese History

In recent years, the main force for research into modern Chinese history has been Chinese scholars, who up until this point have not had a Western outlet for their scholarship. The Institute of Modern History of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences seeks to re-dress this with its international publication, the Journal of Modern Chinese History: a new platform for Chinese and foreign scholars to exchange ideas directly. Fully refereed and published twice a year, the journal focuses on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It aims to promote research on modern Chinese history by encouraging discussion of political, economic, ideological, cultural and military history. The journal also encourages discussion on the history of society, foreign affairs, and gender as well as regional research and historiography. The Journal of Modern Chinese History welcomes all original research including research articles, review articles and research notes, especially those reflecting recent developments in scholarship.

2 issues per year.
