Welcome

Journal of Contemporary Eastern Asia (JCEA)


JCEA is a refereed biannual e-publication devoted to the study of current political, social and economic trends in East and Southeast Asia. JCEA also accepts studies related to Internet research, Triple Helix, social network analysis, and cyber communication. The editors welcome manuscripts based on original research or significant reexamination of existing literature.

 

The journal was founded in 2001 by the Austrian Association of East Asian Studies in cooperation with leading scholars from Japan, Taiwan and South Korea.

 

In 2010, the Cyber Emotions Research Center at YeungNam University, Korea, became a co-publisher of the journal.

 

In 2012, the Austrian Association of East Asian Studies had to suspend its operation as a consequence of the ongoing financial crisis in Europe and the subsequent lack of financial support form European donors. In June of the same year, JCEA was transferred to the Cyber Emotions Research Center (English website) at YeungNam University, Korea, and the Asia Triple Helix Society.
