Editor's Greeting and Notes
Welcome to the new IEAS Publications website! I am excited by this opportunity to re-present our publications to the world. As the new editor at IEAS, I look forward to guiding the program through the current fast-changing publishing environment, and I aim to enhance the quality of the well established IEAS series. Our goal is to make excellent scholarship universally available.
Special call for submissions to our Japan Research Monograph series. Of particular interest are manuscripts on Japanese history and annotated translations of Japanese literary works.
The Manuscript Process
To submit a manuscript, follow the instructions and IEAS style guidelines available as a pdf here.
Upon receipt of a manuscript, we send it for review by a Berkeley professor familiar with both the topic and our series. If the manuscript passes the on-campus review, we request one or two external reviews by experts. Based on the reviews, a publications committee will recommend accepting or rejecting the manuscript, with the final decision made by the IEAS director.
Once a manuscript is accepted, it is copyedited in consulation with the author/s or editor/s. The resulting manuscript then goes to composition and design and on to printing and binding.
Upon publication of a monograph, we announce its availability to customers and send a notice to book review editors. Our books are made available for sale on our website, at the institute itself, and through online booksellers and bookstores nationwide. We also fill standing orders for our series at leading institutes, and we promote the monographs at the AAS annual meeting.
