Twentieth-Century China

Vol. 33 (2007) - Vol. 35 (2010), Vol. 40 (2015) through current issue

Twentieth-Century China, a refereed scholarly journal, publishes new research on China’s long twentieth century. Articles in the journal engage significant historiographic or interpretive issues and explore both continuities of the Chinese experience across the century and specific phenomena and activities within the Chinese cultural, political, and territorial sphere—including the Chinese diaspora—since the final decades of the Qing. Comparative empirical and/or theoretical studies rooted in Chinese experience sometimes extend to areas outside China, as well. The journal encompasses a wide range of historical approaches in its examination of twentieth-century China: among others, social, cultural, intellectual, political, economic, and environmental. Founded as a newsletter in 1975, Twentieth-Century China has grown into one of the leading English-language journals in the field of Chinese history.

Twentieth-Century China was formerly published as Republican China (1983–1997) and as the Chinese Republican Studies Newsletter (1975–1983). Twentieth-Century China is now published by Johns Hopkins University Press for Twentieth Century China Journal, Inc., and is the journal of the Historical Society for Twentieth-Century China. Supported by an international editorial board of eminent scholars, the journal employs double-blind peer review and evaluation by the journal’s academic editors to select outstanding articles for publication.
