On behalf of our graduate students’ journal Innovative Research in Japanese Studies (IRJS), I would like to extend a warm invitation to graduate students to submit their work for the upcoming 2015 issue, the second issue of this journal.
Our first issue presents five outstanding papers submitted by graduate students from the US, Europe and Israel. To review publication please go to http://www.irjs.org/#!irjs-volume-1-2014—table-of-contents/clii
IRJS aims to become a pioneering international journal showcasing outstanding papers on Japan written by graduate students; it is one of the few publications in existence with such a mission.
IRJS accepts original articles from all academic disciplines pertaining to Japan, including but not limited to politics, international relations, economics, history, literature, cultural studies, anthropology and the arts.
Supported by the Israeli Association for Japanese Studies (IAJS) papers submitted to IRJS will be fully reviewed by our editorial board. Authors of the selected articles will enjoy personal, step by step guidance until publication by members of the editorial board.
IRJS is currently accepting submissions for our second edition. The deadline for submissions is October 30, 2014.
Submissions guidelines can be found at http://www.irjs.org/#!submission/cnec
