Asia in Focus is a Nordic journal on Asia published by NIAS - Nordic Institute of Asian Studies. We kindly invite Master students and PhD students from the humanities and social sciences, who are affiliated to a Nordic institution, to submit an academic essay or academic article on a subject involving one or more Asian countries (from Central Asia to Oceania, excluding Australia and New Zealand) for Issue 3.
We now also welcome article submissions all year round, and are keen to expand our editorial team with additional external reviewers.
More detailed information can be found in the attached Call for Articles and on the journal website www.asiainfocus.dk. Please feel free to print and distribute the attachment among colleagues, students, departments and networks.
Deadline for submission: February 1, 2016
Publication date: June 2016

Issue 2 out in December
Over the years, NIAS has helped new scholars at Nordic member institutions reach an audience outside their own turf, by giving courses on how to publish and how to reach a global readership. By launching the Asia in Focus journal, we took this one step further and offer early career researchers a unique opportunity to publish their work: we provide more focused guidance and feedback than they would get from a mainstream journal, and give full recognition and respect to the stage scholars are at on their academic career ladder.
The second issue will be freely available to read and download at www.asiainfocus.dk in December. In the second issue you will find works on collective memory in Taiwan; a historical essay on the creation of a colonial consciousness in early 20th century Japan; youth activism in Myanmar; the motorbike revolution in Vietnam; and how the ‘green lung of Bangkok’ is being threatened.
