Quarterly on Japanology / 日本学季刊誌
ISSN (Online 2543-4500)
Welcome to Silva Iaponicarum 日林, a Japanese studies quarterly devoted to the broadly comprehended field of Japanology in humanities and social studies.
Silva Iaponicarum was founded in 2004 at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, and has since been published as a joint venture of Polish centres of Japanese studies in Poznań, Cracow, Warsaw and Toruń.
Double-blinded peer-reviewed academic papers introducing original research in Japanese studies constitute the core of our quarterly. The Silva fascicles also involve reviews of the newest Japan-related publications, English translations of Japanese (and Japonic) texts, and Japanologist miscellanea.
You are cordially invited to contribute your texts and ideas to any of the above. Your creativity and out-of-the-box thinking will be much appreciated. Your academic degree, length of research experience or institutional background make no difference to us. Yes, Ph. D. candidates, graduate students, independent researchers, your proposals, too, will be most welcome 😊.
We accept contributions in English and Japanese. We welcome both individual papers and proposals for thematic issues. Our homepage contains up-to-date information on the current calls for papers.
