USC’s Newest Journal

The Student Journal of Asian Studies at USC (SJAS @ USC) is a student-run journal supported by the USC East Asian Studies Center, faculty, and scholars to help publish undergraduate and graduate work in various disciplines surrounding Asian Studies from around the world. Issue topics and submissions are not limited to any specific field as long as its content revolves around the continent of Asia. Our goal is to establish an interdisciplinary atmosphere for student researchers on the rise to share their works and contribute to scholarship in Asian studies.
