Call for Articles: Journal of China in Comparative Perspective

Journal of China in Comparative Perspective
(London School of Economics)

The editors of the newly launched Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP) invite submissions of articles in English up to 8.000 words in length including notes and list of references. The articles must be original and not previously published. They should be sent electronically in either word or rtf format to the journal’s official email address: jccp@lse.ac.uk. The journal is peer-reviewed, and will be published biannually by the London School of Economics.

The JCCP was founded to encourage and publish original multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary comparative research on China. Comparison includes taking China as a case study of some more generally applicable theory, or drawing from comparative data about China and some other country or countries some analytic conclusions. The comparison may be regional or global; and it may be historical or contemporary. It may also involve a comparison of perceptions - China's perceptions of others and others’ perceptions of China in the context of China's encounter with the outside world in the political, economic, military and cultural sense.

The JCCP is a strictly non-partisan publication and does not support or discriminate against any political, ideological or religious viewpoint. Although conceived as an academic journal, the editorial policy of the journal is to ensure that articles that appear therein are of interest beyond the academic arena to both policy-makers as well as readers with a general interest in China-related themes.

In accordance with standard academic practice, all submissions undergo a rigorous process of blind peer review. Submitted articles are blind read by two editors who decide whether the articles are suitable or not for publication, with or without revision. If these reviews are positive the article is sent to a third editor for further review before being returned to you, the author, for revision and final submission. The whole process should in normal circumstances take no longer than three months. We expect the revision to be completed within four weeks. Please note that all authors are responsible for ensuring that their manuscripts are written and formatted according to the journal’s writing style.
