Helsinki & Journal of Chinese Political Science


The Journal of Chinese Political Science (JCPS) is an America-based academic journal that publishes theoretical, policy, and empirical research articles on Chinese politics across the whole spectrum of political science.

So, why does it have anything to do with Helsinki?

Well, the simple reason is that Prof. Julie Yu-Wen Chen of the University of Helsinki’s Chinese Studies is one of JCPS’ international editors. And our mission for JCPS in Helsinki is to promote the research of Chinese political science in EUROPE.

JCPS has just been accepted into Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which is a new index created by Thomson Reuters! If you are a social/political scientists interested in empirical research and working on topics related to Chinese domestic politics and foreign policy in comparative perspectives, JCPS might be suitable for you.

Currently, JCPS is interested in proposals for special issues on Chinese governance, the “Belt and Road” initiative, China and South China Sea , and any other issues of your research interests or based on paper flows of international conferences you organize or chair or willing to guest edit for JCPS. If you have any proposals, please feel free to JCPS!
