Asia in Focus has found a new home at the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies!

After several years of expert management at the Nordic Institute for Asian Studies, Copenhagen University, the journal has moved across the Öresund to Sweden.

Asia in Focus is a peer-reviewed journal published online twice a year. The focal point of the journal is modern Asian societies viewed from the standpoints of social sciences and humanities. The geographical focus is Central Asia to Oceania excluding Australia and New Zealand. 

Asia in Focus was initiated to provide Masters and PhD students with a widely accessible and transnational forum to publish their findings. The journal accepts submissions (academic articles, academic essays, book reviews) from students from all European institutions of higher education.

The new editors aim to maintain the emphasis helping early-career researchers publish high quality articles. We will ensure authors receive in-depth feedback on their work, in order to enable them to reach a high standard. We thus demand a high standard from our authors, both in original submission, but especially where authors are invited to resubmit.

The journal publishes Asian Studies research broadly conceived, including both humanities and social sciences, but not linguistics.
