Join us June 29 at 3:00 pm ET for an AAS Digital Dialogue session featuring David Kenley, editor of the Asia Shorts book series. Published by AAS in conjunction with Columbia University Press, Asia Shorts has a unique mission in our contemporary publishing environment. Kenley will introduce the series and, more importantly, discuss how potential authors can prepare a manuscript for submission. Participants can submit questions regarding Asia Shorts in particular or about the broader state of disseminating scholarship in a rapidly changing publishing industry. Open access, “pay to publish,” the explosion of social media, and the blurring of the boundary between trade texts and scholarly monographs—these are only some of the topics Kenley will address in this important Digital Dialogue session.
This AAS Digital Dialogue session will be an opportunity to meet with Joseph S. Alter, the editor of the Journal of Asian Studies, to learn about the preparation of manuscripts for submission and the peer review process. Alter will begin the session with a brief overview of points that are outlined in a short document entitled “Guidelines for Publishing in the Journal of Asian Studies,” which you may access below. The document is designed to address many common questions that relate to publishing and to highlight key points that are especially relevant as you consider submitting your work to the JAS.
Following this overview, the session will be structured around questions you are invited to submit in advance (you may submit questions when registering for the session, or through the button below). These may range from the practical and procedural to broader concerns about how the field of Asian Studies is changing, and how to conceptualize your work in relation to changes in academia more broadly.
Join AAS for a rebroadcast of the Member Meeting that took place on March 26 at the 2022 Annual Conference in Honolulu. Following the recorded event, there will be a live Q&A with Executive Director Hilary Finchum-Sung. We welcome all current and prospective members to this event to learn about the new AAS Strategic Plan, governance changes, and upcoming programs.
Register today—and on the registration form, please share any questions, comments, or topics you’d like Hilary Finchum-Sung to address during the live Q&A session.
