Kyoto CSEAS Series on Asian Studies

This post is also available in: Japanese

In recognition of the rapid growth of quality scholarship in East and Southeast Asia, this series was inaugurated in 2009, in order to promote and make this fine scholarly output available globally. Through the NUS Press network, the distribution is quite wide. Due to the width of the targeted audience, we aim to produce works that will make significant contribution to the field of Southeast Asian studies, with clear and concise arguments on relevant questions in the field. The refereeing process is overseen by both the publication committee at CSEAS and the NUS Press, by a selection of top scholars in the field. The final production is done by NUS Press.
