Japan Focus is a peer-reviewed electronic journal and fully-indexed webzine on Japan and the Asia Pacific.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientist’sDoomsday Clock conveys how close humanity is to catastrophic destruction–the figurative midnight–and monitors the means humankind could use to obliterate itself. First and foremost, these include nuclear weapons, but they also encompass climate-changing technologies and new developments in the life sciences and nanotechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm.

Critical Asian Studies (formerly the Bulletin of Concerned Asian Scholars)….remains true to the mission that was articulated for the journal in 1967 by the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars:
* to develop a humane and knowledgeable understanding of Asian societies and their efforts to maintain cultural integrity and to confront such problems as poverty, oppression, and imperialism
* to create alternatives to the prevailing trends in scholarship on Asia, which too often spring from a parochial cultural perspective and serve selfish interests and expansionism
In this spirit Critical Asian Studies welcomes submissions that challenge the accepted formulas for understanding the Asia and Pacific regions, the world, and ourselves.
