About The Stanford Journal of East Asian Affairs






The Stanford Journal of East Asian Affairs (SJEAA) strives to address compelling issues in the East Asian region in a manner accessible to a general audience. SJEAA showcases undergraduate and graduate work on East Asia in all disciplines. They receive submissions from leading universities both in the United States and from abroad. Copies of the SJEAA are distributed to East Asian studies departments and libraries across the nation.

Article submissions can focus on any topic pertaining to East Asia. The work is roughly divided into the following sections:
  • Greater China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan)
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Southeast Asia

Beyond academic work, the publication also serves as a discussion forum for current issues in East Asia through editorials, interviews and book reviews. SJEAA seeks submissions pertaining to China/Hong Kong/Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Greater East Asia.

Stanford has 2 affiliated centers, the Stanford Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) and the Stanford Asia/Pacific Research Center (A/PARC). The U.S. Department of Education designated Stanford University as an East Asia National Resource Center under Title VI of the National Defense Education Act of 1958. The grant to the Center for East Asian Studies partially supports the instructional and programmatic needs of East Asian Studies at Stanford, as well as carries out activities of regional and national utility. SEANRC sponsors Asian Languages courses such as “Chinese for Social Scientists” and “Japanese Language, Culture, and Communication,” as well as special courses on more obscure Asian languages such as Uighur and Tibetan. It also supports a number of outreach activities in service to the region and nation, such as professional workshops for teachers, development of materials on Asia for use in schools, public lectures on East Asia topics, and advanced language practice groups. Stanford faculties in a dozen departments teach and carry out research on East Asia.

More than just the publication, SJEAA is a focal point for students interested in the East Asian region. The Centers provide them opportunities to meet peers, faculty and alumni with similar interests through faculty nights, lecture series, discussions, film showings, and cultural visits.
