U.S.-Japan Women’s Journal

ISSN: 1059-9770
E-ISSN: 2330-5029
Frequency: Semiannual

Established in 1988, the U.S.–Japan Women’s Journal is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, biannual publication, available in print and online that promotes scholarly exchange on social, cultural, political, and economic issues pertaining to gender and Japan. The U.S.–Japan Women’s Journal encourages comparative study among Japan, the United States, and other countries. We welcome contributions from all academic fields in the social sciences and humanities and proposals for special issues. Our mission is to foster the work of young researchers and to ensure that the achievements of established scholars are not forgotten.

Until 2000, the U.S.-Japan Women’s Journal was published in both Japanese (as Nichibei Josei Journal from 1988) and English (as a supplement from 1991). It is now published in English only. A former joint publication of the U.S. –Japan Women’s Center, the Center for Inter-Cultural Studies and Education, and Purdue University, the journal is now produced by the Jōsai International Center for the Promotion of Art and Science.
