The Journal of Oriental Studies (JOS) was first established in 1954 at the University of Hong Kong. It has been recognized as a leading bilingual academic journal in the field of Asian studies in Hong Kong and worldwide. Over the past decades, the JOS has published over 50 volumes, with academic articles and book reviews in Chinese and Sinophone studies involving such humanistic areas as language, literature, history, philosophy, religion, and translation. All articles published in the JOS are refereed.
Starting from 2022, the Journal of Oriental Studies will be renamed as HKU Journal of Chinese Studies (HKUJCS). While upholding the aims and principles of the JOS, the HKUJCS will further enhance its connections with Chinese academia in Greater China. Dr Song Gang will be the Chief Editor, and several Executive Editors will be responsible for the submissions of respective fields. A multi-column pattern is to be adopted, with 6 to 8 articles in each issue. The columns include Chinese language, literature, history, religion, translation studies, gender studies, Hong Kong studies, China-West studies, distinguished lecture series, and reviews and research news.
