In order to broaden our readership and increase our visibility internationally, Mainland China Studies (MCS) now welcomes the submission of English manuscripts. Having started as one of the few available sources of academic research on contemporary China in the 1960s, MCS has been committed to publishing top-quality analyses in Chinese. With China's steady rise in economic and political influence, China Studies has become one of the most productive fields in social science. Currently, the field is awash various information, data, and discussion. In response to this new trend, MCS now invites interested parties to submit English manuscripts, aiming to provide a platform on China Studies for international scholarship. Submitted papers can be written either in Chinese or in English. Chinese manuscripts should not exceed 20000 words in length and English manuscripts should not exceed 8000 words in length.
