Manuscript Categories


The International Journal of East Asian Studies (IJEAS) is a journal that publishes research articles, regular articles and book reviews that fall within its scope.



  1. Research Articles present data and findings from research, originally conducted by the authors, that are related to or with implications for East and Southeast Asia.

  2. Regular Articles present a critical evaluation or a new interpretation of existing literature on a particular topic related to the region. Regular articles share some similarities with “review articles” that draw on scholarly analysis and conceptual synthesis.

  3. Book Reviews consist of a critical appraisal of selected books on humanities and social sciences that are related to the region of East and Southeast Asia.


All research and regular articles must include an abstract containing a maximum of 250 words. After the abstract, up to five keywords should be provided. In general, IJEAS considers manuscripts from 4,000-6,000 words in length. Book reviews should be from 800 to 1,500 words in length. Abstracts are not required for submitted reviews. 


Pre-submission English-language Editing


English-language manuscripts should be competently written and argued in clear and concise grammatical English. Contributors are strongly advised to have the manuscript checked by a professional English language editor with expertise in your subject area. All editing costs must be borne by the authors.


Manuscript Submission


Manuscripts must be submitted online at https://www.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/easttu/about/submissions. Full instructions are available on the site and a user ID and password can be registered on the first visit.


Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as an attachment using MS Word format. They must be formatted in a 12-point font, double-spaced, and page numbers. For manuscripts with multiple authors, the corresponding author's name and (e-mail) address must be clearly indicated. Authors and co-authors must not be identifiable in the body of the text. In general, IJEAS uses the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition). When preparing manuscripts, including in-text citations and references, authors must follow the rules set by the American Psychological Association (APA). Footnotes are not used for citation purposes, but for detailed comments. They should be identified by consecutive number in the text.


Below are examples of common APA citation formats.

Editorial Policies and Ethical Considerations


All research and regular articles in IJEAS have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous double-blind refereeing by at least two reviewers who give an opinion about acceptability on the basis of originality, scholarly reliability of the study, analyses of the data and interpretation of the results. All book reviews published in the Journal have undergone editorial review by the editors and/or other members of the editorial board. Manuscripts submitted to IJEAS must be original contributions and must not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. The final authority to accept or reject the manuscript rests with the Editor-in-Chief, who reserves the right to refuse any manuscript for publication.


The Editors or members of the Editorial Board may sometimes submit their own manuscripts for possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by other members of the Board. The submitting Editor/Board member will not be involved in the peer review and decision-making processes.


Copyright and Open Access Policies


Upon acceptance of a manuscript, authors will be asked to transfer copyright. This transfer will ensure the wide dissemination of information. A notification will be sent to the corresponding author confirming receipt of the manuscript.


The IJEAS is an open access journal. All articles are freely available to read, download and share.
