East Asian History was published in print from 1991 to 2008 (issues 1-36), and was edited by Geremie R. Barmé (to 2007), and Benjamin Penny (from 2007). The journal’s predecessor, Papers on Far Eastern History, was published by The Australian National University’s Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies from 1970 to 1990. When Papers on Far Eastern History became East Asian History the new journal employed an original and striking format that the new online version of the journal has adapted and developed in the new medium.
East Asian History will be published twice each year. Articles published in the journal are submitted to double-blind peer review unless otherwise stated. Final selection of papers is at the discretion of the editor.
