Call for Papers : The Japanese Political Economy

The Japanese Political Economy is rejuvenated and renewed with a new editor, new co-editors and a new, international editorial board. It continues Japanese Economic Studies; a leading journal published continuously since 1972, that was known as Japanese Economy, from 1997 to 2013.

The Japanese Political Economy seeks to publish a wide range of scholarship that draws from multiple theoretical, empirical and methodological perspectives. This journal will be a resource for scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners who seek to better understand the contemporary and historical, transnational and internal processes of social and economic change in Japan, Asia and the world.

Please read the journal’s Aims & Scope before submitting.

The Japanese Political Economy is now inviting submissions on following issues:

  1. Broader economic theories (including Political economy, Marxian, Heterodox, Keynesian, Evolutionary, Institutional, Developmental, and Feminist Economics).
  2. Historical analyses of capitalism (including stages of capitalist development, analyses of world system changes).
  3. Theoretical and empirical explorations of current political-economic issues, including studies of Japan and the global and Asian economies (such as crisis, financial instability, socialism, gender, environment and climate change, poverty and income inequality, unemployment, an ageing population, industrialisation of Asia).
