Call for themes or topics

Journal of China in Comparative Perspective (JCCP ISSN 2040-0837) is the only peer-reviewed academic dual language journal for social scientific, humanities and comparative studies of China in the world, published biannually in June and December in print and electronic versions from 2015 by the Global Century Press.

JCCP is inviting thematic proposals for whole issues of JCCP organized around a common theme or topic. If accepted, the proposers of successful proposals for theme-based issues are invited to act as Guest Editors of the Journal. Note that each contribution to a specially edited themed issue will have to pass the normal reviewing process. Click HERE for Guidance for contributors.

JCCP encourages contributors to put the material about China into comparative perspective in JCCP as much as they can. JCCP will not be simply about China - there are already several excellent China journals. It will be about looking at China from a comparative viewpoint as a player in broader patterns of development, ideas, movements, networks, and systems. Comparison includes taking China as a case study of a generally applicable theory, or drawing analytic conclusions from comparative data about China and some other country or context. The comparison may be regional or global, historical or contemporary, and it may 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 coverage of China in comparative perspective is very broad. The list of themes has been developing based on the core course of the MSc China in Comparative Perspective and related work at LSE by Professor Stephan Feuchtwang in 2006. We also collect some related publications for your reference. See below:
