Chinese Studies is the official publication of the Center for Chinese Studies (CCS). It was launched in July, 1983 as a bi-annual journal with a broad emphasis on Chinese studies featuring scholarly articles, research notes and book reviews in both Chinese and English. Since 2008, it has been published quarterly in March, June, September, and December every year.
Chinese Studies welcomes submissions from scholars in related fields including, but not limited to, history, literature, philology, philosophy, and cultural studies. As a highly acclaimed peer-reviewed scholarly journey in the international community of sinology, it has been ranked at the top tier of the Taiwan Humanities Citation Index (THCI CORE).
An editorial board has been established since 1997. Board members are renowned scholars selected from a range of fields: history, literature, philosophy and linguistics. They hold board meetings four times a year. To maintain the leading role in Chinese studies and to invigorate scholarly inquiries, the editorial board organizes a special issue per year to bring together focused discussion on a topic that reflects the most updated state of the field in Chinese studies research. The latest special issue is on “Disease, Medicine, and Culture.”
To promote open access to journal articles and to facilitate research, Chinese Studies offers free access to all its articles in many full-text databases, such as EBSCO: History Abstracts with Full Text, CEPS, TJFD, HyRead, CLISA, etc. All articles can also be accessed in the Full Text Database of CCS Publications for free search, download and print.
