  • All substantial articles received are sent anonymously to two referees who are asked to respond within 30 days. Our target is to respond to authors within two months. Favorably evaluated articles are generally published six to twelve months after the final manuscript has been received. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as an e-mail attachment (preferably as a Word document) to Philip C. C. Huang, Editor, modernchinajournal@gmail.com. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editor. Articles should be typewritten double-spaced with footnotes, references, tables, and charts on separate pages. Footnotes and bibliography should follow the Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition). Copies of the style sheet can be obtained from the editor upon request.
