A New Platform for Research on Chinese Literature, History, and Philosophy

Posted on


Journal of Chinese Humanities is an English-language extension of Wen Shi Zhe 《文史哲》, a long-standing and reputable Chinese journal published by Shandong University. JOCH’s content spans important topics within the fields of Chinese history, philosophy, and literature. It covers both traditional and modern areas of research. Importantly, this journal aims to represent the current research coming out of mainland China. Each issue will be composed primarily of articles from Chinese scholars working at Chinese institutions, while at the same time including a small number of articles from foreign authors so as to provide opposing perspectives. In this way Chinese scholars’ research can reach the Western world, and our Western readers will benefit from a native perspective and first hand material coming out of China.

Every issue will be theme-based, focusing on an issue of common interest to the academic communities both in and out of China. This journal primarily targets academics in the English-speaking world who study multiple aspects of Chinese civilization and humanities. It will be of interest to both scholars and advanced students.

Journal of Chinese Humanities has just released its most recent issue entitled “Early Confucian Thought”. Published by Brill, the issue contains research articles, book reviews, and a special review section “Top Ten Developments in the Studies of Chinese Humanities in 2015”.
