Journals of Japanese Studies

The EAJS does not publish its own academic journal but it encourages its members to submit manuscripts to following high quality academic journals in the field of Japanese Studies. These journals carefully edit manuscripts by native and non-native speakers of English.

  • Contemporary Japan
    Contemporary Japan is the peer-reviewed biannual journal of the German Institute for Japanese Studies Tokyo (DIJ).
    Formerly known as Japanstudien (founded in 1990), Contemporary Japan publishes in-depth, original work from all disciplines as they relate to contemporary Japan and its development. Manuscripts which cross disciplinary boundaries and raise larger issues of interest are also welcome, as are research notes.

  • Monumenta Nipponica
    This peer-reviewed quarterly journal first published in 1938 is one of the oldest journals in the field of Japanese Studies and has a strong reputation in the fields of Japanese culture and history.

  • Japan Forum
    This peer-reviewed journal established in 1982 is published three times a year.
    It accepts contributions from across the social sciences and the humanities, and it is most well-known for the articles it has published on modern Japan.

    Japan Review is the refereed journal published by the International Research Center for Japanese Studies. 
    We solicit outstanding manuscripts relating to Japan. We also publish shorter research notes, review articles as well as annotated translations of important texts. Submission to Japan Review is open to all engaged in the study of Japanese culture past and present. The journal has been published annually since 1990.
