Frontiers of Area Studies

The purpose of this publication series is to call for outstanding research results in Japan and abroad, have them screened and reviewed by the editorial committee of experts outside of academics, and then release them as commercial publications from Kyoto University Press. The publication is considered part of the activities of CIAS as a joint usage / research center. In particular, we aim to share studies that compare areas and focus on their relationships as well as information related to area studies. Further, we publish promising research results with an eye to breaking new ground for area studies, such as area informatics, as we seek to become an international information channel that explores the frontier of area studies.
