Call for Papers: Journal of Chinese Military History (Submission Deadline: ongoing)
The Journal of Chinese Military History, edited by David A. Graff and David Curtis Wright, is a peer-reviewed semi-annual from Brill that will begin publication in 2012. It publishes both research articles and book reviews, aiming to fill the need for a journal devoted specifically to China's martial past. It takes the broadest possible view of military history, embracing both the study of battles and campaigns and the broader, social-history oriented approaches that have come to be known as "the new military history," and it covers all of the Chinese past, from prehistory through the pre-imperial and imperial periods down to the present day, aiming to publish a balanced mix of articles that represent a variety of different approaches and address both the modern and pre-modern periods of Chinese history. The Journal of Chinese Military History also welcomes comparative and theoretical work, as well as studies of the military interactions between China and other states and peoples, including East Asian neighbors such as Japan, Korea, and Vietnam.
Manuscripts for articles should be between 7,500 and 20,000 words, double-spaced, and submitted electronically as MS Word documents.
Article submissions may be sent to either of the editors:
If you are interested in reviewing books for the journal, please contact the Book Review Editor, Kenneth M. Swope (Ball State University): firstname.lastname@example.org
