ChiMoKoJa - Histories of China, Mongolia, Korea and Japan

ISSN No: 2058-3117
Journal Editor(s):
Dr. Frank Jacob
Subject: History

Journal Description

ChiMoKoJa will work as a scientific forum for those who are doing research about the history of Japan, Korea, China, and Mongolia. Due to its long history, this geographical sphere has seen several changes to its political, social, cultural, and economic setting. However, with regard to long history of Euro-centric perspectives, the East Asian region remained analyzed rather step-motherly and the interconnections of the states in the region itself lacked clear identification. Especially with regard to cultural transformations, migration movements, wartime histories and many more topics, there are still many questions left unanswered. Therefore, we encourage scholars to share their recent research about such historic questions, to provide a broader audience with an insight into the region’s complex history.

ChiMoKoJa therefore invites scholars who are conducting research on the history of one or more of the single countries of East Asia – no matter which time period – to send in articles of actual and original research on these regions. Especially welcome are papers that would deal with a comparative perspective of the region or the history of interrelated aspects.

The journal will be published bi-annually (June and December). In addition to established scholars, we also encourage young scholars to send in articles to be considered for publication. All papers will be blind-peer-reviewed before they are accepted. Reviews of recent books covering the history of East Asia in general or specific national aspects of the region are always welcome.
