The Central Asiatic Journal is devoted to the linguistic, cultural, and historical heritage of Central Asia. Most contributions relate to the geographical remit of the Central Asian core region, i.e. Mongolia, Turkestan/Xinjiang, Tibet, Siberia, and Manchuria. By extension, however, this definition can include a secondary sphere extending into all of western Asia, the Himalayas, China’s Han-majority provinces and the Pacific fringe region (Korea, Japan, and eastern Siberia). Articles are published in English, German, French, Russian, and Chinese. The Central Asiatic Journal is fully peer-reviewed.
The journal has started publishing contributions in thematic clusters, and focuses on Mongolia, its surrounding regions and the historical implications of Mongolian expansion , on the Tangut people and the Xi-Xia (His-Hsia) state , and on the contribution of the Manchus to China’s more recent history. Further issues are focused on the migration and nation-building in central and western Asia and discussing historical Central Asia.
