The Southeast Asian Studies Regional Exchange Program (SEASREP) Foundation has launched the inaugural issue of its Regional Journal of Southeast Asian Studies (RJSEAS), an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal in English that aims to feature the work of scholars in the humanities and social sciences in the region.
For the past 21 years, SEASREP has worked with and supported the development of many scholars in the region as Southeast Asian specialists. By offering this journal, SEASREP hopes to make a more tangible contribution to the body of work on Southeast Asia. The journal is published twice a year (January and July) and features:
- Papers based on current and latest research (6,000 to 8,000 words per paper including footnotes and references);
- Abstracts of dissertations (200-250 words per abstract);
- Bibliographic essays or commentaries on research projects/works about a given theme, national or regional; and
- Announcements of conferences or conference reports.
The theme for the July 2016 issue of RJSEAS is Plural Identities in Southeast Asia. The journal may be viewed and downloaded from http://www.rjseas.org/current
We ask you to encourage your postgraduate students to submit abstracts and journal articles based on their research and dissertations. Inquiries and submissions may be sent to email@example.com.
Thank you very much for your support. We look forward to receiving contributions from the faculty and students of your institution.
