The Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong has published annual volumes of its Journal since 1960. Beginning life as the Journal of the Hong Kong Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, as of 2004 the title was changed to its present format. The Journal forms one of the most important and widely consulted repositories of primary research on Hong Kong and South China. In 2016 the Journal began to provide bilingual English/Chinese titles, abstracts and keywords to all articles.
About the Journal
The Journal is an international, English language journal specializing in studies of Hong Kong and South China in the fields of the humanities and social sciences produced by an Editorial Board and advised by an International Editorial Advisory Committee. We use a blind peer review process. All titles, abstracts and keywords are also translated into Chinese using traditional characters.
Members of the Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong are sent a copy of each issue of the Journal free. For non-members, in addition to the online access to PDFs of individual articles (see below), hard copy issues of the Journal are available for purchase from the Administrator using an order form available from firstname.lastname@example.org or from St. John's Cathedral Bookshop, 4-8 Garden Road, Central, Hong Kong. In 2017 the cost of each issue is HK$200. Electronic versions of the whole Journal are also available. Please contact the administrator for further information.
