Welcome to IEAS Publications!
We are a nonprofit academic publications program supported by the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. We publish scholarly monographs on China, Japan, and Korea, as well as research papers and policy studies on the Asia-Pacific region. Submitted manuscripts go through a rigorous review process, and those selected for publication are often reviewed in academic journals.
Managing Editor Katherine Lawn Chouta acquires and edits all manuscripts in addition to overseeing the production and marketing of the monographs. She may be reached at email@example.com.
Publications Assistant Erik Lyngen handles customer orders and worldwide distribution of our books and journals. He may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The institute sells the Berkeley Buddhist Studies Series on behalf of the Center for Buddhist Studies.
IEAS distributes the Journal of Song-Yuan Studies for the Society for Song, Yuan, and Conquest Dynasty Studies.
We publish and distribute Early China Special Monograph Series with the Society for the Study of Early China.
The institute hosts the editorial staff of Asian Survey, a bimonthly journal published by UC Press.
