Presenting Chinese Studies International: A Scholarly Review Journal

China Review International: A Journal of Reviews of Scholarly Literature in Chinese Studies is now Chinese Studies International: A Scholarly Review Journal.

This current issue, Volume 28, opens with this note from editor Ming-Bao Yue:

The journal launched in 1994 under the editorship of Roger T. Ames (Professor Emeritus) with the goal to serve the “Sinological community by keeping it abreast of published scholarhip in all areas of Chinese studies in a timely way.” The journal aimed to be inclusive, providing English-language reviews of current literature across the boundaries of both language and discipline, drawing scholars from differing geographical and political perspectives into conversation.

The updated title better reflects the new trends and changes in the field of Chinese Studies that articulate well with the evolving mission of this official journal of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s Center for Chinese Studies.

The updated title also signals a shift to keep pace with the times: Once a quarterly print journal, Chinese Studies International will now publish online continuously throughout each year with the same volume of content. This allows the journal to be more timely, greatly decreasing the duration to publication. This online format also allows the journal to better serve its largest audience. In academic year 2023-24, China Review International content was accessed more than 75,000 times in more than 100 institutions from nearly 20 countries.

The journal is sponsored by the Center for Chinese Studies, College of Arts, Languages & Letters, University of Hawai‘i
