China Review International publishes reviews of recent scholarly literature and "state-of-the-art" articles in all fields of Chinese studies. Reviews are generally published by invitation only; however, unsolicited reviews will be considered for publication based on merit.

Language - Reviews are published in English. If your review is written in another language, the original and an English translation are requested.

Length - The editorial policy of CRI is not to restrict the reviewer as to length of review. On average, most reviews have between1000 and 2000 words. If you anticipate your review will be much longer than this, please negotiate an appropriate length with the editor.

Deadline - Please note that we expect to receive your completed review within two months of your receiving the book from us unless you otherwise inform us.

Submission media -Manuscripts should be submitted as electronic file attachments in two forms: 1) a text file, e.g., a Microsoft Word document, and 2) a PDF file for reference. Please use the same name for both files, with the book author/editor surname followed by the reviewer surname in the following format: bookauthorsurname-reviewersurname.doc or .pdf

Chinese should be transliterated using the pinyin system. Chinese characters may be included in the body of the text, if desired. If Chinese characters are included, please review the final version of both text and PDF files to ensure all characters display correctly.
