electronic journal of
contemporary japanese studies
The electronic journal of contemporary japanese studies (ejcjs) is an international peer reviewed journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences that publishes academic research and scholarly writing on all issues related to contemporary Japanese literature, theatre, cinema, philosophy, society, economy, politics, culture, and more. Our editorial board consists of academics from around the world, and our production team consists of global volunteers. We are grateful for contributions from scholars working in all fields of the Humanities and other disciplines relevant to Japan, and although we focus on contemporary matters, we will publish outstanding work covering any historical period.
We typically publish three issues per year, comprising peer reviewed articles, non-peer reviewed discussion papers, reviews of books and films, and translations of both academic, i.e., non-fiction, and fiction writing. For a list of volumes and issues, please click here.
