The China Journal is a refereed, scholarly publication that focuses on topics relating to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan since 1949, plus studies of the major issues that contribute to understanding of Communist Party history and contemporary events.
For more than two decades the Journal has provided informed and insightful commentary from China scholars world-wide. It enjoys a substantial international readership and, as shown by their comments, is regarded by many academics as well as persons involved in business and government as the most interesting journal in the field.
In addition to a wide range of articles, the Journal also carries book reviews of all the important books published on modern China.
The Journal is published twice yearly - in January and July - by the Contemporary China Centre at the Australian National University.
